I wrote about this incredible album a while back, when it was first released as a digital-only album by the band, and before there was a label to release this formally. Should have known that San Francisco's Flenser Records would get involved, as they put out the vinyl of the first Wreck and Reference EP, Black Cassette. I'm not going to take a whole lot of time to tell you about this album again; I'll merely say that I am absolutely stoked that it's getting a vinyl treatment, because 2012 will end with this as one of it's best albums. I can't think of another band that sounds like Wreck and Reference, and with originality being a difficult thing to achieve these days, especially while still writing good songs, this is a premium piece of music that doesn't come around too often. If you haven't heard it yet, you can stream or download the album (pay what you want) at the Flenser Records Bandcamp or the Wreck and Reference Bandcamp.
I'm giving this album the highest recommendation I can - I love it that much, and I think you will too. The album was recorded by the band, and mixed and mastered by Colin Marston. Comes on colored vinyl or black vinyl, and the colored edition is limited to only 200 copies so if that's your preference, don't waste too much time. Starts shipping early July, so get your preorder in now, here.
