The Microphones - "The Glow" Pt. 2 (2xLP - Gatefold)

$22.99 $24.99

This is the record that has never stopped selling and has always been hard to keep in print. Originally released by K in 2001 to great acclaim, then repackaged in 2007 with some related studio scraps, now finally released definitively here with the scraps trimmed away, the artwork made perfect, the music pristinely raw, the jackets substantially made, filled with words and pictures; a possession worth keeping.

The Microphones continue to boldly expand and expound upon the possibilities of analog recording. Their third full-length for K and fifth overall, is a sprawling 67-minute masterwork, sure to earn the group the undisputed title of experimental pop's MVPs. Impeccable songwriting laden with hooks, a widely varied palette of instrumentation, potent lyrical paintings, and interspersed sound tweaks that serve to lace everything together. Comparisons to the Elephant 6 collective aside, "The Glow Pt. 2" transcends psyche-pop and lo-fi tags to blossom as the most actualized and daring album of The Microphones' young career.
