That was refreshingly refreshing! Although on the other hand reminiscent of 1980s Wang terminals...

And your problem is?

I have got to the point now where my super- smug car cd player has eaten my frost cd, and has locked me out of my own world, because I don't know it's stupid unlock number, but I don't care because I can hear it in my head anyway... So I win (ish..)!

And trying to make it see reason is  pointless...
Title: Re: Day and Age
Post by: Trapezium Artist on March 22, 2021, 12:28:34 PM
Needless to say, am very much looking forward to this. Not least because I may (cough) have played the tiniest of roles in helping connect John and Jem with a certain Death Eater friend of mine who is reputed to appear on the album  ;)

As for "Terrestrial", Frost*tastic indeed, with some of the guitars and keyboard textures a throwback to EIMA in the best possible way. Marvellous.

That said, is it just me, but does the YouTube version sound a lot more centred, compressed, and "denser" than the Spotify one? I'm not very good at A-B listening, but the Spotify version sounds a lot airier and open to me. Both are in stereo and both compressed by definition, but the Spotify version is my choice for now.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wda09d-QdUk
https://open.spotify.com/album/5fe8okWl0OMdUWYq2xp8Nz?si=iGBnCtVsRaKB2CJ_4n3EKw

Can't wait to hear the CD version. I wonder if there's any chance of Day And Age being released in hi-res audio too though :-)

Really interested that the review speaks of influences from The Police and I'm reminded that John & Jem were talking about The Police a bit in the podcasts recorded during their writing sessions.

Also curious as to why those podcasts disappeared...

Loving the new songs. Missing hearing Jem's dulcet tones though, I hope we hear a little bit more of him on the whole record!

Agreed – I don't think he gives (well, gave…?) himself enough credit in previous videos, I really like his voice.

A friend once likened it to one the singers in Nine Days (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nine_Days), and I kinda see his point on the more gravelly tracks.

Hi
 
Further to the earlier email about Frost* ‘Day & Age’ on CD we have now been told that the replacement CDs will take longer to arrive than we expected and there will probably be a 3 week delay.
 
By way of apology we will include a free SIGNED postcard with your CD when it ships.
 
We apologise again for any inconvenience.

 :( :( :(

Nice to get a signed postcard but suspect I’ll have to also purchase a download version on Friday as I’ll not be able to last 3 weeks reading all the glowing reviews, etc. Clever marketing ploy Jem! ;)

Just collected from the good folk at Burning Shed...vinyl+CD+signed card, all in tip-top condition ....just upping the vol to 11...again :)   
Such a magnificent feast for the ears! This is going to be soooo good to see/hear live #hope
Day & Age track, with the tantalising start of a Jem solo at end fade , still makes me want to hear more ...
Congrats to Frost*  - stunning release

Listening to it this morning and that really stopped me in my tracks.
Was there anything like a similar concept in that song and "The Boy Who Stood Still" or has my mind made that up?
Title: Re: Day and Age
Post by: Fogeyspasm on May 15, 2021, 11:36:52 AM
Morning all.
Signing in after a fair few years of not! ;D
So how's everyone, radiant hopefully but not in a heated or irradiated manner?
Well the albums a corker but I must admit I had a laugh out loud moment listening last night when I heard this. All those years ago Cameron was gutted that 1976 never made it into a full track or did it? I can't go there here but I may tell you a story about that one day! :-X Anyway I remembered this from all those years ago in a distant age when he was little and didn't have a beard that he kept playing this and now this bit has re appeared in The Boy Who Stood Still.

Hello boys and girls... wow it's been a while. Hope you are all well?

1976, I don't have this (ashamed smiley) - found it on Youtube but is there a downloadable version anywhere?

D&A - Amazon now quoting cheaper than when first released but long delivery. At least I'll get a free download of the Mp3 while I wait!

Slightly off topic - did you know that you can freely stream stuff from "Freegal" which is available through your local library?. When registered this includes 5 track downloads a week (or 10 if your missus/partner also has an account). I'm assuming, and hope that the artists get paid from library funds for this?? Anyway there is a TON of stuff there if you go searching including, I think, everything released by Frost*. The download mp3 sample rate is not brilliant, but streaming is fine for dog walking with headphones, hence why I have not bought the new album yet - but will do.

Wonder why the track Postcard wasn't included on either the 13 Winters boxset or the new album Day & Age...

Maybe because it didn't fit with the sound of the rest of the album..?

"Storm Driving" is a gentle little track, pretty underproduced compared to the rest of the album, likening its subject's tendency to evade and ignore external stresses to driving through a storm.  Jem on vocals, the whole song sounds like it could be all Jem and no one else.  Three minutes, thirty-seven seconds.

For my ears, it fits best between "Skywards" and "Kill the Orchestra" -- a brief calm before the real 16-minute storm that closes the album in fantastically Frosty fashion.
