And I like taking your piss, dear, but this is neither the time nor the place for whispering sweet nothings.

Didn't really make much of a splash from what I can tell. I've heard almost no fan babble about it since it came out, but it's definitely one of the year's early high points. Just my opinion.

I thought it was very good and sounded more like their earlier work than their later albums... Maybe you haven't heared many people talking about it because it's not officially released yet? (i think it's out on March 30th here...)

Well, I got my promo a few weeks ago, so that's probably what it is.

It's officially released today in the states. I'm just saying I was hearing and reading a lot about it for a while, but the excitement seems to have died down. I guess that's somewhat understandable... I mean, they're a fairly "old" band now, and they've been out of commission for a few years. I guess it's not a huge shocker that interest has waned.

Maybe now that the album's actually out, I'll start to hear more about it from SYG users and folks at the record store.

Where'd you get a hold of Andøya?

It's not due out in the states until April 11th, and even I haven't been blessed with a promo and I moonlight at an independent record store.

I've listened to snippets here and there, though... Sounds super fucking official. I'm pretty excited about this one.

I've no idea who that Eric Holm is, but I love that sleeve so I'll give it a listen whenever it's released
(edit: you can streaqm it here: http://www.factmag.com/2014/04/07/st...-album-andoya/ )

Anyway, the new gy!be album can be streamed here: http://www.theguardian.com/music/201...s-album-stream
only heard it once so far, that last track sounds a bit weird to me, there's one guitar too high in the mix, especially compared to how it's played live. But I'm not complaining :)

is it released in states this year? coz it's been released last year, and unfortunately by the time I found out about this release it was sold out in physical form. so I would love to see it re-released. you can stream (record ;-) whole album here :

http://www.factmag.com/2014/04/07/st...-album-andoya/

p.s. you can get it on discogs and I actually waiting for a right moment to grab it, whenever I have 40 quid to spend on another vinyl :-). really nice album.

well to see them live is the best experience, no matter what album I would say. I've seen them twice. amazing.

I mean, they are about live, listening their albums a home or in the car was always weird for me, they don't sound like they would sound live. I don't know how to explain it.

must check out their last one though.

you already know the story behind cover art and music by now:

island of Andøya, an outpost 300 kilometers north of the arctic circle.

attaching a single contact mic to remote telegraph pole that connects the island’s array of military listening stations.
