I can't stop listening to both the preview tracks!! I always felt a bit burned out on 'Night Goat' too but not any more! Anyway is anyone else here in the least bit bothered (or interested) by the fact that all the songs on the record have the '(Acoustic)' bit added to the titles? All the songs on the bandcamp page are written like that. Surely that seems a bit overkill. We all know it is an all acoustic record, is there any real need to emphasize that with each song title? I'll be interested to see if they are written that way on the actual release.
that's mostly for when those songs get out into the wild and show up on playlists or devices by themselves i would think. i know i'd find it annoying if it was labeled the same as the original version.

Yeah i did think that was a possibility. A bit annoying to me in terms of being an artistic decision if indeed it was so. That in this day and age one would have to consider that. It somewhat reminds me of the songs on Radiohead's 'A Moon Shaped Pool' all being listed alphabetically - aiding playlists or streaming or whatever.

'Revolve' sounds great. Some unexpected bass additions in among there from Steven!

What do you mean by tarp? (It's been a while since I saw anything other than the cover art.)

Anyway one thing i've been looking forward to seeing with this album is what the packaging for the CD's will be like. I wonder whether it will be the same as the 'A Walk With Love & Death' with two separate cases or just a fold over card case that has two pockets for both CD's. Judging by the photo above it seems to be more along the lines of that than like AWWL&D. Also wouldn't it be totally Melvins to state on the back of the record that it is "all acoustic" and then throw in an all electric track just for the sake of it!

tarp. maybe you call it a tarpaulin.
Im still not really sure what you mean. I know what a tarp is, i just don't see it on 'Five Legged Dog'. Perhaps you mean that textured green look that is the background to the 'Hold It In' cover art? I can see that similarity.
