"We all have the potential to fall in love a thousand times in our lifetime. It’s easy. The first girl I ever loved was someone I knew in sixth grade. Her name was Missy; we talked about horses. The last girl I love will be someone I haven’t even met yet, probably. They all count. But there are certain people you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. But there’s still one more tier to all this; There is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of these loveable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life they will control how you feel about everyone else."

Today Beach Fossils announced their highly anticipated Clash the Truth, due out 2.19.2013 on Captured Tracks. I’m working on the packaging right now with some swell beings (Dustin Payseur and Mike Sniper). Perfect|Midnight|World has a few words about the release, while you listen to the new single “Careless.”
I’m going to temporarily interrupt the list making for a new track that could very well be on an album of the year contender for 2013 - “Careless” by Beach Fossils, from their upcoming album, “Clash the Truth”. I’ve long been an admirer of the Beach Fossil sound, and one of their side projects places quite high on my favorite songs and albums of the year, so it was inevitable that I’d find myself bobbing my head to the shimmering dream pop sounds of “Careless”. Highly recommended for fans of DIIV, Wild Nothing, and Real Estate.

Just discovered this excellent breakdown of the limited edition coloured vinyl version of Wild Nothing’s Nocturne done by Ghost Vespers. Check the photos above and read more below:
Wasn’t expecting this to come in until next week based on my prior experience with the Captured Tracks store (both DIIV & Heavenly Beat LP’s came a week after release date). Needless to say, this was quite the surprise to find in my mail box!
It comes (similar to the DIIV limited release) in a wrap around silkscreened cover that was lovingly handled by the talented folks at Hammer Press, located in Kansas City, Missouri. (If you use Instagram they have photos of the process in their feed, very interesting. Check them out at username @Hammerpress). The paper is heavy, high quality stock but is not numbered. Design is by Ryan Timothy McCardle
The LP is housed in a single sleeve package that features a rectangular die-cut that takes up a majority of the front cover, leaving room to display 1 of 3 double sided inserts. This provides the listener to choose from up to six different covers. The inserts are numbered in the upper right and each contains song lyrics in order of the tracklisting.
Also included is a large newsprint poster with an illustration of the lunar cycles for the entire year, complete with months and days of the week.
