Ha Fucking Ha



If you haven't bought this album yet, you really should, it is absolutely beautiful.

The reason why I haven't mentioned this album before is I hadn't heard it until the end of last week due to some thieving bastards at the Royal Mail. I had ordered one of the special boxset editions from Song By Toad and had been eagerly awaiting the arrival but as the time progressed I emailed Mathew who then sent on another set which also didn't arrive! The third one eventually arrived only because it was sent recorded delivery which was duly left inside the storm doors without a signature being obtained.

Anyway it was worth the wait not only does the album look gorgeous I'm a sucker for coloured vinyl but it sounds damn near perfect, lovely clear production and some of the best tunes I have heard this year. I was a bit worried that due to the fact that the album was recorded in a proper studio I would not warm to it like the previous offerings as part of the appeal of Meursault for me was the lo-fi diy feel to the music. I need not have worried the production just makes the music fuller but it is still unmistakeably Meursault.

So get your arse over here and order the album, you know it makes sense.

Aye.....but as I said a couple of weeks back I'm still stunned at how different (and better!!) it sounds live.
