Over the past few days, we’ve been listening to a lot of test pressings for the of Montreal vinyl re-issues. This project has been in the works for about a year and after having to buy a new office record player (because our old needle scratched a couple of records) everything is back on track.
I never really listened to of Montreal before working at Polyvinyl, so albums like Coquelicot, Aldhils, and Bedside Drama are all fairly new to me. Even recently, I’ve kind of ignored The Early Four Track Recordings (mostly due to the retro-sounding title) but as I discovered yesterday there’s definitely some gems on it. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the album, “Dirty Dustin Hoffman Needs a Bath” is streaming below.
Edit: Adam just saw my post and wanted me to offer a special Tumblr discount to anyone who would like to hear the whole record. Head over to the PV E-Store and enter coupon code EARLY at checkout to get the album for only $6.75!
