Jakob Thread: LP5 Hype Edition

Recommended Posts

Considering the massive gap in material, I'd be pretty disappointed if this band made no effort to progress or try new sounds with the new album.

I just mean it's missing some signature elements I expected. They had a particular way of working with delay that would have been nice to hear again as a reminder of where they came from.

This track is HUGE  in so many ways... (and how much more delay can you desire, has to be like 16 in series!!) - and how in the world can they do something like this live? Jeff must be looping like crazy - that intro I can't even get my head around.  The mid to latter portion it is much easier to hear the layering.  He is the master of ebb and flow.


I hope they kept that real sludgy track on the Soundcloud teaser from Oct 2011 - can't wait to hear it turned out.  The way they hitched Cale:Drew from Skewaard's outro into Malachite's intro on Solace still gives me goosebumps, so I wouldn't expect them to have done that again.


I've been chilled so long that what's another 2 or 3  months, plus still much music to digest from this year so far.

Solace is one of my favorite records in the genre. And I will welcome this new one with gratefully open arms and ears. Hope they can do some US touring behind it. I was lucky enough to catch them opening for ISIS on the final tour. What a fuckin show that was.


I went to the Seattle show of that tour. After Jakob's set (my introduction to the band) I ran over to the merch table hoping they had some vinyl, which they did, the red/black Solace.
