On November 12th, while touring the United Kingdom and Europe with Into It. Over It. and Slingshot Dakota, Koji will release Matters – an EP produced, engineered and mixed by Will Yip at the legendary Studio 4 in Pennsylvania during their initial 2011 demo sessions. The four songs, available as a digital download and limited edition cassette tape bring to mind the stripped-down acoustic stylings of his initial releases, whilst incorporating the striking strings and soulful intricacies that would later make their way onto his debut LP.

There are literally no advantages to cassette tapes as a physical medium.

If that's the factor, buy digital or pirate it.

Love this dude, but A) I hope the songs that I've heard off this aren't as snore inducing and repetitive as Creeping In My Mind was and B) I'll never understand why he insists on continuing to release past material on each new EP he does.

Um I'm taking about from an artist or label standpoint. Not a shitty fan who would pirate over owning a physical piece of music.

Alex, thanks for posting about this! It means a lot to us.

I'm with you Zach. I would have loved to do a 7-inch too, but we had a time crunch with Koji going on this UK/ EU, Russia and Japan tour, and tapes were the quickest way to get these songs out. I'm also a big fan of tapes, personally. I grew up with them, they're inexpensive, and cost fans just a little more than a download, but gets them a physical, tangible product.

I can't speak for Koji, but my thought process with this was, here's four songs that have never been properly released on a physical format that as a fan of his songs myself, I would love to own somehow. Luckily, I'm not the only one who's willing to buy it.
