Published Feb 19, 2018My Bloody Valentine recently released all-analog vinyl reissues of their classic albums Loveless and Isn't Anything. It turns out, that if you ordered these directly from the band, you might have got a pretty awesome bonus.
As MBV now confirm, the group mailed out a free "alternative cut and pressing" of Isn't Anything to some lucky fans. Brooklyn Vegan reports.
Apparently, these alternate pressings of the album came to be as a result of Kevin Shields shopping around at various vinyl pressing plants, with the band deciding to gift their fans with the various presses instead of simply chucking them out.
Shields recently explained the process of shopping around for the reissues to Rolling Stone. "If you go to a French manufacturer, it's gonna come across a lot softer sounding and warmer than if you go to a British manufacturer, where it's gonna come across a lot more high end," he said.
Shields explained the band eventually settled on a German plant, adding of their process, "We literally have a few thousand records lying around. All experiments and failures."
As previously reported, My Bloody Valentine are currently working on the follow-up to 2013's m b v. It is expect out sometime this year.
