2011-04-20no devolución i missed out on ordering the deluxe edition of thursday's "no devolución" (only 500 copies, with laser-cut artwork); to be honest, i forgot that they were releasing some new material. when i remembered, i ordered it from the epitaph webstore. including shipping and usd-cad currency conversion, it was still cheaper than buying it from hmv.
i received the cd in the mail yesterday.
i've listened to this a couple of times by now, and i'm really liking it. overall, it's atmospheric and moody; an "experimental" progression from their previous material. the preview track "magnets caught in a metal heart" is a good example of this newer sound.
thursday - magnets in a metal heart
strangely, "empty glass" makes me think of digital ash-era bright eyes.
thursday - empty glass
i think this will be one of my favourite releases of the year. and "sparks against the sun" is my current favourite track.
