Does the webstore t-shirt bundle come with the blue record too? I can't tell. 

Believe so.  That blue doesn’t appear to be limited at all.  I wonder if Mom+Pop or Ninja will carry other variants, too.

It's almost like Derek™ knew this preorder would involve custom artwork options.

The custom artwork is sort of a neat concept I guess but definitely not for me.  I’d be interested to see how many people spring for it.

Yeah looks like its out of 10k.... makes me think I should wait and see what else appears.
Still a bit annoyed that I sprung on the "Limited Edition Red" version of epoch only to have them flooding shelves years later.

 

 

Same.  I think the only really limited ones were Dive and Awake.  Otherwise, nothing has been limited other than in name.

Because there are 10K of the "exclusive" blue, it seems like waiting to see what the other options end up being isn't a bad idea.

I’m starting to think the only other variant we may see is a Newbury exclusive in 10 years.  Epoch allegedly had a press of 10,000, too, and was [is?] readily available for ages.  I would definitely say you’ve got time to weigh options.  And if Epoch aftermarket value is any indicator, I bet you could even get a copy for a fair bit less than $30 PPD on Discogs, if you have the patience.

 

Unrelated but that (default) album art is such a departure for Tycho.  They’ve gone the minimal route for so long.  I don’t hate it but it makes me wonder if the music will be a comparable curveball.

I feel like the DIY triangle design was far more in line with the standard Tycho aesthetic.  Only offering that with the custom print is kinda lame.

Very much the Tycho aesthetic.  But maybe that’s how they getcha’.

 

The new single (Pink & Blue) is up on Spotify.  I don’t yet know how I feel about there being such a huge emphasis on the vocals.  I enjoy them when they’re a little more washed out or in the backseat, but I’m interested in hearing it in context with the rest of the album.
