“It is rare that I can say with a good amount of confidence that an album released this early will likely be one of my top albums of the year, but it is going to take several extraordinary albums to devalue The Technicolour Sleep.” –AbsolutePunk.net Review (2007)
Released on the vinyl format for the first time in the last six years. The American Dollar's "The Technicolour Sleep" has been been deserving the vinyl treatment since it's release and that's why we are proud to announce our continued effort of releasing this band's music on our favorite format. Learning a little about the process from our first release from The American Dollar's "A Memory Stream" we decided to not step back from our deluxe over the top approach of releasing vinyl but instead decided to step it up. We didn't use an all in one type release formula we went to different places for everything and we think the final product looks incredible.
The deluxe variant is kind of crazy but we thought this release warranted that. Coming together in a screenprinted unfinished hand crafted sustainably harvested wooden box. This variant includes all the nom nom colorways for this release:
- Black 180gram /56
- Blue Raspberry Sorbet /54
- Chocolate Vanilla Custard Blend /106
- Super Lemon Ice w/Licorice /107
- Fudge Brownie /111
Held together in a hand cut obi strip.
The big box includes a few extras: The Technicolour Sleep digipack CD, exclusive slipmat, complete American Dollar discography download card, Exclusive demo digital link to the never released demo versions of the album complete with demo notes in a wax sealed paper bag envelope.
* The shipping on this thing is going to be problematic for those not living in the US but instead of restricting sales I am going to put this up for anyone to buy but I want to warn you its a wooden box full of vinyl so there's that...
- Maybe Buy
- Not My Style
- Too Expensive
