    Grabbed one this morning. Very excited to get it!
    Also I impulsively bought a shirt cause it combines two of my favorite things: donuts and records

    I've been miserable at keeping up with The Internet at best, especially when it comes to the only two forums I adore (this being one of them) but I felt the need to post just to say that this first Sounds Delicious release arrived today and has left me feeling humbled and amazed. I'll admit, I wasn't excited by the announcement of the first album release, as I was never able to appreciate Oasis (and given their popularity, that's clearly a fault of mine, not of theirs) and was stuck in this mindset of, "well, at least there's the next eleven months."
    Well, I'm still spinning it but I'm almost at the end, and I honestly can't even decide now whether I should just appreciate this for the beautiful thing it is, or if I should take things one step further and go give the original Oasis album another chance. I don't suspect I'd find half the appreciation for the original that I have for Yumi Zouma's cover, but this has at least allowed me a real appreciation for the music. Whether that winds up being true for the original is trivial at this point, I just realized this made me a thousand times more excited about having backed this on Kickstarter in the first place, as I suspect there will be more nice surprises in store that hit me in ways I'd never expect.

    My guess is the second Sounds Delicious record will be Jonathan Rado's cover of Springsteen's Born To Run, based off @MatthewTK saying that the black vinyl made sense with the cover art.

    Sounds Delicious shared the cover art for Rado's Born To Run cover album a few months back, see below.

    Makes sense that the label wouldn't want to release it until there was a little light between it and the new Foxygen.

    It could, of course, also be a cover we haven't seen yet... :rolleyes:

    Weirdly, they don't have Mitski listed on their web page anymore for the upcoming artists....add Ben Gibbard covering Teenage Fanclub to that though.

    I forgot about the Gibbster!

    Ah dang, hope the Mitski stuff didn't fall through. She's definitely gotten WAY BUSIER over the recent year, so I could see it.

    We're moving through them as fast as we can. I think by the end of the week we'll have them all. Did you sign up via Kickstarter? If so, it should have shipped *unless* you didn't reply to the survey asking for your updated shipping address.

    Yeah, I should address why we took Mitski's name off the website. Last we talked with her folks we were told Mitski still wants to do one with us but that her schedule *probably* won't allow her to do one for release in 2017. We're taking a "no pressure" approach and letting them tell us when she's available. But, yeah, my sense is that she blew up and her schedule looks very different than it did when she originally agreed to be part of the service. My hope is that it's still within the first 12 releases.

    In addition to Ben Gibbard, we also added a super group of sorts built around the guys in Local Natives that will be covering Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue and Ava Luna covering Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire de Melody Nelson. We have four more artists we're in talks with now that I'm super excited about but don't want to jinx it before it's a done deal.
