The Microphones - "The Glow" pt. 2 (2001)

i figure some of you may have already listened to this album, but it is just really that great. all the elements that are thrown in here mix so well together with phil elverum's style, that is just surpasses simple influence into something new. the glow pt 2 is a folk-ish grunge-y distorted fuzzed out album with some great musicianship holding it all together. fans of noise and sound-collages may also get a joy out of this album, and anybody who enjoyed the seattle scene can also befriend it. oh, and if you like folk too. actually, even if you mildly like fantastic production, download this.

    drk, I have the re=issue vinyl, but I lack the means to rip it properly. if you want to though, I could post the v0 of the deluxe extras.

    that'd be awesome.. i can't afford one for two weeks and am afraid i might not get one if they sell out by then.
