Awesome news about the vinyl reissues. Speaking of vinyl, Owen, I recently acquired the single LP version of In Conflict for those lazy days when I don't want to be flipping through the four sides of the 2-LP version. And I was quite surprised to realize that Infernal Fantasy is the last track on that version! Was wondering if that means you think of Soldiers Rock and the last track to be non-integral parts of the album? Like, is the single-LP version the truest version of the album, or just a version where certain decisions had to be made to fit it onto one record? Regardless, I for one am deeply grateful that you kept Soldiers Rock in the 2XLP and streaming versions--it is one of my favorite songs of yours.
Jules, are the downloads any different from what are on the LPs? Spent the day listening through all three. They all sound excellent. Thrilled to have Spectrum 14th Century on vinyl as it's long been a favorite. Used to listen to it on repeat in the lab in grad school.
I just noticed this in the interview that was posted today - my download code for the EPs doesn't have any bonus tracks...??? I haven't had a chance to play the vinyls yet but the bonus tracks for the albums were included in the downloads. Have they been missed out or am I just missing something?
"Bonus tracks on The Two EPs include Pallett’s cover of The Strokes (“Hard to Explain”), their contribution to the David Shrigley tribute album Worried Noodles (“Joys”), and a previously unreleased outtake from their 2014 album In Conflict (“Contra O Capitalismo”)."
I got download codes for all 3 together by mail and mine (well I say mine they really belong to Ed) include all the extra tracks ( including on the Two EP’s set)
It was nice to get Contra O Capitalismo as an extra bonus bonus. The quality of the digital wav files is way better than my cut from original vinyl for YCM.
I’ve always loved the Many Ives version of CN Towers and even better that I can stream all this stuff endlessly when I’m on the move / work. I do have a digit mix tape on my iPhone with these and some other stuff I culled from various online sessions over the years (Inteview, Paris 1919, Possibly Maybe, Actors Revenge and even Danny’s Song)… sorry off on one.. anyway these are all great and treasured and much better quality.
The big question is will we ever get The Box and Spaceship Earth soundtracks in physical form…. I’m never satisfied am I 👻
Just saw all the merch in the Hidden Cameras story! Hopefully most of the stuff will be available online at some point? Particularly intrigued by the shirts and whatever the “Owen Pallet: Japan 2012” and “Owen Pallett with Jennifer Castle (I think?)” seem to be!
