The two-decade wait is over for fans of My Bloody Valentine
: finally, a new album.
"MBV," out today, is their first since 1991's critically-acclaimed "Loveless."
"We are preparing to go live with the new album/website this evening," the famed Dublin, Ireland-based shoegazers said via Facebook and Twitter on Saturday. "We will make an announcement as soon as its up."
And now, it's up. They're offering it on vinyl, CD, and digital download (16bit 44.1K WAV, 320kbps MP3, or 24bit 96K WAV), but they've also taken a pretty radical step by uploading every song on "MBV" to YouTube on the same night as the paid formats debut.
Buzzfeed has a good backgrounder for new fans, including details on the "chinchilla problem" suffered by creative force Kevin Shields and singer Bilinda Butcher. The music blog Brooklyn Vegan has more on today's release. Here's details from the band's website (which was periodically overwhelmed with traffic tonight). The band's Twitter account is @theofficialmbv, and their Amazon catalog is here.

Above are screen projections from the 1974 French tour. Below, a reel from the 1975 North American tour. (The album audio was added by someone […]

When you can’t wait for the world’s longest meeting to end, the mindless leg bouncing makes your boredom obvious and just annoys everybody else. Everyone knows the TPS reports need the damn cover sheet, but some sadistic colleague keeps forgetting, probably on purpose just to eat into your lunch hour. Enough is enough!While serving a […]

You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
