Plaid – Scintilli – WARP

Finally, after 8 long, desperate years Plaid will release Scintilli on 25/26 September 2011.  As a curious person I will certainly download the album when it leaks but I already pre-ordered the CD too. The initial CD version seems to be limited coming in some sort of Japanese puzzle pack.

05.Tender Hooks
06.Craft Nine
09.Talk to Us
10.35 Summers
11.African Woods
13.At Last

’35 Summers’ sounds promising, influenced by their cooperative work with the Southbank Gamelan Players:

Edit 24/08: First track from the new album available for download:

Reminds me a bit to the beginning of  ‘Spokes’ – the +spatze.com record of the year 2003 – good omen.

    I don’t share what I download. Well, this is how it goes these days with music (also films, e-books etc.) and the music industry failed so far to offer acceptable concepts and formats. I do pay for what I like as I want to support these musicians.

    …ha, there was no need to look for a leak site. Just received the early digital from Bleep. Scintilli is much darker than I anticipated. But is it epic? Need to listen to it a few more times…
