That's good news! I received an e-mail yesterday stating that my copy has been dispatched, although there was no mention of a digital download. I do get some decent mileage out of those downloads, as we do a fair amount of traveling, but I'll still rock the vinyl proper when it shows up.

Actually got an email yesterday with the digital download.  I’m waiting to hear it on vinyl for my first full listen.  At last check it’s in Seattle this morning so I’ll probably get it by Monday at the latest

Oh, I wouldn't blame Ipecac in this situation. I know some folks who work for various other labels, and there has been a lot of general furloughing in a lot of those places; sometimes scaled down to one or maybe two peeps who have to weed through it all. I reckon they're doing what they can. I just get anxious at times, but what can one do? These are crazy times.

No. They apparently don't give a shit if we get it remotely close to the release date. They printed the shipping label for my copy a week ago but that's about it.

Just listened to the whole thing the first time on the Google Play (soon to be RIP). It's fantastic. Totally different feel from This Machine. A real collaboration with Dunn.

and yet, the link titled "King Buzzo is already over his new solo album" has a quote from Trevor that he overdubbed everything after the album was wrapped up.  :shock: :lol:

Second listen through and I am loving it.

Just because Dunn was added after the rest (mostly) doesn't mean it's not a collaboration. The bowed bass, soloing, and counter rhythms are stunning. I hear Dunn's work like the first Gnarls Barkley record or Patton vs X-ecutioners. It transformed the record and are now a core essence.

I don't expect these tunes to become a staple of Melvins sets and that's fine. It's generally soporific. Good for headphones and long walks.

The synth noise sections are perfectly placed and add some needed variety, too.

I still hope we see a proper Melvins follow up to A Walk with Love and Death this year. But between this, the EP, and the collab EPs I think Buzz is really doing right by us, the fans.

Not sure if it’s a second run but there’s copies of the pink LP for sale in the Ipecac music/ Blixt Merch store

This song.  This song rules.   8)

11/11 album.  Top notch shit.

Also of note!

The CD liner notes include lyrics to "Science in Modern America" which might Mark the first time since Ozma that Buzz's lyrics have been printed in full? Someone correct me. Crystal Fairy and Never Breathe don't count, of course.

There were lyrics to a song in Houdini. But I think that is it?

Great album, I have listened to it more than “White Lazy Boy” and honestly, it’s way more interesting and fascinating to me compared to the Melvins/Mudhoney collaboration... By the way, long live Bandcamp and their high quality digital downloads!!!

Does any believe "Nose tick a toe" are the real lyrics to Hooch? That's a joke about Buzz's delivery. As was probably "Like Stee Moanin Ludlow" from Egg Nog liner notes.

This guy makes a few interesting points about the record. Especially in regard to how this album is more adventurous and more traditionally in keeping with what Melvins were than have been in the past decade. Also how Gift Of Sacrifice seems like a relation to The Bootlicker. I don't agree with his opinion about Mackie's art though. Personally i like her aesthetic and stylistic themes much more than the older pre-Mackie album covers.
