This album consists of two full discs - a standard of NSB releases - that add up to roughly 160 minutes of audio. I really can't understand how they've it over the years with such frequency and with so few lapses in quality.
That being said, the responses on rateyourmusic for this album are not among the most positive for the band. The record contains more of a post-rock vibe where you would find those long droning folk experiments on newer albums and the shorter psych-folk tracks have been excluded. So maybe people were disappointed to find out that they have since expanded on their sound?
For me this is a gem. Something akin to the sounds Grace Cathedral Park generated on 'In the Evenings of Regret' but with plenty of signs of more experimentation to come.
I've had to split the two discs into three download links because of the 100mb limit but they're clearly labelled 1-1, 2-7, etc. with the first number being the disc, second the track, so it should be easy to sort out. MP3s at 256kbps. Artwork can be found on the discogs page linked above - can't hotlink their pictures.

Great Jooklo news this month. Holiday Records are releasing a collaborative LP between Golden Jooklo Age and Peaking Lights...
...and then Qbico are apparently due to release a set of four new LPs (Jooklo Duo, Neokarma Jooklo Trio and Neokarma Jooklo Experience) next month. Hope they're discounted prices!
Then there is the Twinsistermoon 'The Hollow Mountain' CD re-release on Blackest Rainbow at the end of the month - with bonus material - which will then be followed by the TSM and Isengrind LPs.
Oh, and to top it off, the Big Blood releases on Cabin Floor Esoterica (plus an Elm tape around the same time) and Time-Lag aren't too far away.
I wish I owned a bank, or something.
There are also a couple of new Mississippi Records either just released or on the horizon, Joseph Spence, Michael Hurley and Mata La Pena. Heard there were some more compilations as well but haven't spotted those to know any details.

Bird - Hoy en día

And again, I'll "plug" the Disconcerted Sounds group on last.fm. I hadn't realised before it was mentioned but there is a DS radio station that is meant to be generated from what everyone in the group is listening to, that should be interesting. Cheers to the people that have joined the group, thanks for the kind comments as well.
