Everyone in this thread right now...

Was there. Can never get enough of Aaron. Best part is I got to see Old Man Gloom and Sumac within two weeks of each other on my way to and back from Seattle. Can't wait to catch Sumac and Mamiffer at Sled Island this month.

Nice!  I think Oxbow and Lightning Bolt are both playing Sled Island as well, and probably some other good bands who've slipped my mind.  I don't think Canada's ever gotten a music fest with that many good legit bands.  Usually it's all crappy alt radio rock stuff gathered together in one place.

That ain't a mistake buddy. 

 

There's an interview, forgot which one, where Aaron talks about not only wanting to make more than a single album, as well as the concept sonically. I'll see if I can find it really quick.

Cool, I'll check that out. I'm just so used to the lush sonic background of Isis with his singing.... Sumac sounds so empty, like the music is unfinished or missing additional instrumentation.

By the way.... I need to share something with you guys if you like this music:

North - What You Were

Holy. Fucking. Shit. I just got the vinyl in the mail yesterday and spun it today.... unreal music. Please check it out, these guys are unbelievable. It totally satiated the Isis fix I've been jonesing for.

Just powerful, heavy, artful melodic brutality.

Mine arrive today, right variant!

Someone who has both (and a good system/ear) should do a cross comparison.

Does the coloring really make that much of a difference in how it sounds?

The only thing I've noticed with myself is that the clear records I have, are some of my favorite-sounding ones. I don't know if that's the result of a good initial mastering and the recording, but things like Deafheaven's "Roads to Judah" and Caspian "You Are The Conductor" just SLAY in how good they sound.

^Dude's not lying. Just listened to them and my god do they slay face.

RIGHT?!?!?! how is this band not huge?!?!?

It can, but doesn't necessarily make much difference.  I prefer straight up black records, because they are less prone to imperfections.  Also, I listened to my copy of Roads to Judah just a couple of days ago, and thought it sounded pretty crummy (transparent red).

Really? I've got the 3rd press clear that is still available, and man... if you like the album, you should pick it up.

I LOVE how good the drums sound on that album, especially the ride cymbal. The mix is just perfect.

Sunbather is slightly better, in production and source material, but man... i love my Roads To Judah copy haha

Yeah, no, not the colour. Aaron pulled the plug on the first press (it was supposed to be bigger) because he wasn't happy with the sound.

I was wondering if there was a discernible difference. He did say he was being super nitpicky about it.

The black/red sounds flawless by the way!
