Just finished listening to the EP on Spotify, then I see this. "Fine + 2 PTS" has always been one of my favorite MtB songs.

It's not too hard to find. There's a couple up on Discogs right now.

I feel like I've seen this record in a few record stores recently.

Ha. fair enough. It always comes down to how much you're willing to drop on something like that. I see one up right now that's only $27+shipping. Not quite as bad.

Yea, I sometimes dislike myself after dropping more than 25 on a vinyl. Gotta love those 10-20$ finds.

Certainly worth checking out, one of my all time favorite bands. Indie rock from seattle. Sometimes aggressive/epic, sometimes groovy/dancey, and occasional slowed down sensual tunes.

Older material is a little bit more "mathy" sounding, and features a lot of finger tapping guitar style. Check out the Highly Refined Pirates LP for this.

Newer material they started experimenting with more pedal FX and synth/electronics, while maintaining their core vibe/sound. Check out the Planet of Ice LP for this.

The lead guitarist used to be in the legendary hardcore band "botch", and brings a lot to the table with the bands guitar work.

Seem like something I can definitely get into. Thanks for the in-depth breakdown. I'll be checking them out soon!
