Interested in new I Mother Earth, but I don't know if it will be as good without Edwin. I do know the new Cancer Bats will probably be good and you should check out the new John K. Samson if you haven't yet.

Otherwise, people are still crazy for Lights I see. I remember when I started doing this thing and people would get so annoyed if I didn't mention her every week, but that hasn't happened in awhile, haha.

And the Dead and Divine vlogs, some people have messaged me about them. They're finally up after some major technical difficulties.

I remember posting about Grimes recently, I know Broden actually posted her news on the front page and he said Visions was coming out on February 21? Did she move it up?

Cool. I'm not going to lie, when I think of IME, all I think of is "One More Astronaut" and "Raspberry" so I wouldn't consider myself a huge fan in the first place. My sister loved the record those songs came from and as I got older, I started recognizing the first one on the mainstream rock station here. I just listened to the two IME songs recommended in this thread and I don't know if I like them as much as those, but that could just be the nostalgia talking. I think I faintly recognize "Summertime in the Void" but I definitely prefer and recognize "One More Astronaut" more.

Ah, it said Jan. 31st on another site in an Oct. 2011 post. Amazon.com says Feb. 21st though, so I'm guessing that's the actual date.

Yeah, according to Broden's news post they decided to move the release date back for whatever reason so you were right to assume it was coming out this week.
