Earlier tonight, My Bloody Valentine announced through their facebook page that their new website was live and the new album mbv was for sale. It’s been more than 21 years since their masterpiece Loveless, but the album is finally here.
Because of all the anticipation, the server got overloaded, especially with everyone repeatedly pressing f5. Three hours later, the traffic subsided, or they beefed up the server. Either way, I finally got my copy. The physical copies will be shipped in a couple of weeks, and as I type my download is (very slowly ) processing.
I’ll obviously be writing about mbv in the very near future, but tonight, while I listen to it for the first two or three times, I’ll write a piece about my relationship with Loveless. Stay tuned.
