NOTE: Gold Inside Clear w/ White Splatter requires a VIP Membership ($5/month) to purchase. Details HERE. This record is also available in a REGULAR LIMITED pressing; see details below.
You start the conversation with “collaboration between Serengeti, Son Lux, and Sufjan Stevens” and really not much else needs to follow in my opinion. I guess you wonder, hmm what direction will these dudes take this. Their previous release under the name s/s/s found a solid balance between being experimental and pop friendly. I only have the first single to base this one off of, but it seems that this one might even be more in the pop friendly direction. I say that and watch the rest of the album go super experimental. Either way, it’s going to be awesome.
Getcha one, def nabbed me one of the VIPs!
Limited Edition Vinyl that DOES NOT require a VIP Membership is limited to 1500 on Gold Inside Clear vinyl 2xLP.
