For those of you who are digging Slave Ambient, be sure to check out "Comin' Through", one of the highlights from last year's Future Weather ep that didn't make the new album.
I just got "in;" keep trying!
I'm glad he's making the unreleased songs available on bandcamp; that seems like a fan-friendly concession to people who've already bought his music but don't really care enough to shell out $90 for a vinyl fetish object and the "new" tracks.

Glad to see Mangum can't handle the crush of fandom electronically either.
I think I want to buy that box set. Neutral Milk Hotel reunion 2012.
It's like listening to the Springsteen Darkness demos last year, and hearing how he would pull lyrics out (Bruce used the analogy of car parts) for use on multiple later songs. Also, weird that the sound on these mid-'90s recordings is so clear. I was expecting a festival of tape hiss.
Better than just that. They've re-uploaded shit-tons of old content. I don't like the new news layout: the older was more intuitive. However, the flip side of now having access to reviews back to 1999 (and a handy tab that archives all the 8.0-and-higher reviews) means that I'm fine with it.
The tour section seems to have been swallowed up by news.
*based upon tedious fact checking.
The news section is fucking dreadful, I don't need my music news to be delivered to me in fucking one-story-per-page format just so you can make more advertising dollars for fuck sake.
Four Tet (3/6) ~ St Vincent (3/20) ~ Stephen Malkmus/Speedy Ortiz (3/28) ~ Factory Floor (4/15) ~ Sasquatch (7/4-6)
The new layout can suck it hard.
Damn I thought they would give C4 a 6.5, was off by .3 lol

Heck yeah new OTC! What a nice surprise.
This song is awesome. So excited to see them.
One thing i like about the new site is that if you are reading an old review you can scroll to the bottom of the page and see what other albums were reviewed that day. I just wasted like 2 hours doing this.
Yeah, that ^^^
