TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Tropic of Pisces, “Symmetry” EP with
an Exclusive Look into its Mastering

As Tropic of Pisces’ Matt Scheiner told us yesterday, “My earliest memories are from our living room, sitting on the floor in front of the couch and staring up at the reel-to-reel tape deck that sat (to me) unattainably high up on a shelf.”

“There was something so soothing and mesmerizing about watching it play. The idea that that item was producing the sound that I was hearing was—at that age—beyond magical. When I was still very young, I was given a small plastic suitcase style Fisher-Price record player and some 45s. Even the very limited collection I was granted consumed my existence.

If you love music, in my opinion there is nothing more satisfying than hearing it reproduced physically, the way that it was created. For people, by people. Getting to release my own music on wax was a major goal for me. Fulfilling it made me tremendously happy.”

We’re delighted to premiere parts 2 and 3 of Tropic of Pisces’ video series with an exclusive look into the mastering process behind the 10″ vinyl edition of the band’s”Symmetry” EP, pressed in celebration of the one year anniversary of its debut. Part 1 of the series can be found here.

The vinyl edition of “Symmetry” is available through Ooh La La Records and can be purchased right here.

    I feel like I see that level of craft and care in Father John Misty’s I Love You Honeybear. The music itself sounds just beautiful on vinyl, but one of my favorite little details, that’s easy to miss, is actually in the liner notes. One of my favorite lyrics from Chateau Lobby #4 is “You left a note in your perfect script / Stay as long as you want / I haven’t left your bed since.” His to-be wife actually left him that note, and it’s reproduced in the liner notes. Very sweet. 🙂
