  1. This was quite the read! Great job on this!
  2. I honestly don’t expect LP back for a long time. I’m sure he tinkers with ideas here and there but it’s probably not a priority.
  3. I already have the Gold pressing which I think fits better with the standard album cover but damn if I’m not tempted to grab this. That’s such a nice hue of blue. They should’ve given the sleeve the blue “deluxe edition” art to match!
  4. Aww yeah this sounds great! Big fan of Ryan and Amir. They're the nicest dudes and really support their fans. As others have said, a demo release of DBS songs would be killer!
  5. That's exactly where I stand with this quote. I would be much more sympathetic to this idea if it was one of the smaller bands or artists I listen to. But this is coming from a literal millionaire. He's set for life. I understand that at his level, releasing an album on a major label has some strings attached: budget, promotion, tours, merch, videos, etc. etc. But damn man, you can't just toss the fans a bone like you did with Dropped Frames and just kinda throw something out there for the heck of it if the inspiration struck you? For someone who prides himself on trying to think outside of the music industry norms and be on the cutting edge of art, this position just comes across as weak. If the inspiration and desire to release an album of your own accord isn't there, then just don't do it. It's something I personally wouldn't be interested in anyway. Edit: this argument is based solely on the concept of releasing an album. If he want's to just release singles that's an entirely different thing that I feel differently about. I would welcome that approach. Truth is, albums are kinda dead right now for all except the mega stars at this point. With music streaming, different forms of entertainment available on demand competing for people's attention, churning out albums doesn't even make sense anymore unless it's a conscious artistic decision.
  6. A Blood Orange collab would be amazing! Kero Kero Bonito is so fun and catchy, I would be interested to see what they do with a song as well.
  7. Once again everyone beat me to it. If he’s only motivated to release music if it’s a “success” then honestly, that’s an album I’m not interested in listening to. Just comes across like you’re doing it because you feel you need to. Not because you want to.
  8. lmao what did you do to get banned? Your shouts were hilarious. I never felt offended by anything you posted. As for the original topic, I was so hyped for THP since I mostly listen to hard rock and metal. I did notice at the time, the excitement wasn’t there for a lot of people. I think LP has a large amount of fans that aren’t really into heavy music and GATS probably wasn’t doing it for them. At least that’s what I observed with LP fans I know personally. I don’t think the marketing was in top form in that era, in terms of drawing in the casual listener. No huge radio hit or popular music video. I think they tried with Final Masquerade but for whatever reason, it didn’t land. Even KROQ never really played it. That was around the time they stopped heavily rotating new LP from what I noticed.
  9. Sounds like something that would play inside the H&M at your local mall. Basically just sounds like background noise to me. Oh well. Haven't really liked Mike's one off songs. He's at his best for me when he's in the album mindset.
  10. COVID hours got musicians doing twitch and releasing singles, not albums. not surprised in the least.
  11. Holy shit y'all! Mike remixing one of my fav Deftones tracks! Not to mention that absolute A+ lineup of artists contributing to Black Stallion. I am so hyped for this! Purity Ring! Phantogram! DJ Shadow! Wow!
  12. Thanks for the Amazon link! Pre-ordered! And after the HT20 nonsense, I might be better off than if I had ordered from LP.com
  13. Ugh, the Chester print is folded. I expected it, It wouldn't fit any other way, but it still hurts my soul a little.
