I like it a lot actually, quite a fresh sound, rhythmic with a weird underlying ambience about it. Merzbow's singles and EPs quite often impress me, theyre sometimes quite a step outside of the material on the albums. I like the amount of ideas crammed into a short space

My copy arrived this morning. No picture cover - just a plain black 12" vinyl sleeve with the art on an enclosed separate piece of paper. It's one of those annoying records with no indication of what speed it should be played at, though comparing it to the released samples it seems to be 33.3 rpm. Nothing revolutionary, but it sounds good to me: lots of pulsing bass tones and synthetic drones with swarms of higher pitch squelchy static and feedback swooshing overhead.

Nice one man, did you get it from Ready Made Distribution? Was thinking of getting one as it's kinda reasonably priced. Sounds strange that the cover art is separate from the sleeve. I quite liked the samples. Don't suppose it comes with a download code? I've been looking for a digital release online but I don't think there is one (yet) Trouble is if I buy the vinyl I doubt I'll listen to it.

Yeah, I ordered via Ready Made - it only took a week to arrive in the UK from Germany, so it was pretty fast. It was fairly cheap as well, only 9 euro plus shipping, which is I guess why there is no proper cover artwork - even the stickers in the centre of the vinyl are just plain black. There was no download code with my copy. I'm the opposite - I only listen to physical media!

Boomkat announced today that theyre stocking them. Decided to grab one from them. Not sure what the blank sleeve idea is about, its kind of a nod to the records used by djs but i guess a way to keep costs down
