Yeah, my expectations not high, at all. Tho, I was very hopeful that they release this remix with other tracks on EP.
But, anyways, is this mean new album is imminent ? New album, can you imagine ?!

No one is better at training expectations with their fanbase than these guys - "oh it's been 4 1/2 years, sounds like something is coming soon - maybe if we're lucky, it will be an EP"

Perhaps they are remixing a track from the new BOC album?

To be fair, didn't MDG say at one point the "next release" wouldn't be as delayed as the gap to TH? Totally plausible that the remix could have been for a full new album way back then, and fucking life man, gets in the way and we're 4.5 years down the road again?

I think things have been set up in a certain way where ~5 years was probably always the intention post TH, it IS less than 7-8 years after all!

You mean Neil Krug? I just looked and don't see anything. Wonder if he took it down. What did he say?

Hexagon sun (I can't remember if it was MDG or an interview with the brothers) did explicitly state the gap between albums would be shorter than the gap between Trans Canada and Harvest, yes.

If that is the case, and wasn't just an intention they had at the time as a kind of guideline as opposed to something set in stone, we should be expecting something within the next ~24 months maximum.

It shows that people's perception of how long "soon" is varies depending on who is saying it.
Possibly quite logically as MDG's record for "soon! in the past has been a fair few years.
Not that it is a negative thing, years is better than an on-the-spot keyboard improv played over a 70s kid's television show theme made the day before (although, at this stage, anything would do and a prancelot brainfire remix is well overdue)

But also, as things go, when people associated with BoC and not just them or Hexagon Sun PR start talking about upcoming releases, historically, it tends to mean something might actually be on the horizon. Well in reach of the radar.

I feel it's finally coming soon by most peoples' (not mdg's) standards. Let's slow this bird down for now and not get too carried away though. Something will be real, eventually.

It sucks when your 1/13 turns out exactly like 113

Guessing the Black Dog remix is slated for the “remix” tape #6 of the upcoming Old Tunes cassette BoC Set release. Probably their take on an extended Duffy from Acid Memories (tape #2).

Well, we can dream.
preparation for a dive.

Well, BOC have to clear all new releases with me first. And I'm not feeling this year. I think I'll make them release it in 2023. I heard the demo already though and I have to say it's . . .

If you slow Nothing Is Real down by 2% it sounds like the first time you've ever heard it again.

Do you think memories slowly lower in pitch over time?
