To Here Knows When / Re: The My Bloody Valentine vinyl reissues are shipping!

So far I've listened to Loveless almost 10 times. The original DMM pressing remains the reference for the original aesthetics of the album but I'd say this analog reissue sounds better than the original DMM townhouse pressing. The overall sound is more focused on the mid-range noise like in MBV.
"Only shallow" and "Loomer": much more "raw" sounding, I can hear some guitar overtones I hadn't noticed in the original. Can't tell if I prefer these ones over the originals, but I really like their new "wild" sound.
"Touched" : not much difference.
"To here knows when": The tremolo version sounds blunted, the original album version sounds brighter and this one sounds MASSIVE, very noisy wall of sound... Love it!
"When you sleep" ,and "Come in alone": both have more depth and low end. Beat the original!
"I only said": the guitars are all over the place, drums are buried under the noise. Really like this one, very representative of their live sound.
"Blown a wish": This one is greatly improved, sounds less "high-pitched", really warm sound.
"Sometimes": not much difference, just as good as the original.
"What you want": This one is mind-blowing. Always hoped to listen to it with this quality.
"Soon": Beats the original. The kick drum and bass are highlighted. It sounds wonderful!!! 

Now I'll go for my 3rd listen of IA before I make a review.

someone from RYM in the US got their copies today. My wife ordered me a shirt that apparently came last week (she gave it to me today).

Thanks for the translation.

Sounds very exciting.

I’d say I’m relieved that the ‘iceland’ songs were not ideas or elements of the ‘new’ album, however sad to think we may never get to hear them save for the awful mobile phone videos online.

nice summary, the translations I was looking at were a bit hard to follow. Interesting about the Iceland bit; what little we heard sounded semi improvised I thought. I'm taking the mini-album bit with a grain of salt; I know an EP has been in the works for years, but Kevin's also said he had no idea how long the release might be in other interviews.


edit: I just realised there was a second part! Well, if he says mini-album, I guess that's what it is.

To Here Knows When / New Rolling Stone Japan interviews

Available to read here and here. H/T to ChocolatePringles at r/mybloodyvalentine.

Some interesting points:
  • The record planned for this year is twice referred to as a mini album, by both the interviewer and Kevin
  • Recording began over a year ago, was interrupted by the new remasters and started again recently
  • Most of the original sessions were Kevin sketching songs/ideas in Pro Tools, then "putting them to analogue tape" last summer
  • The songs Kevin performed in Iceland were written specifically for the show (translation here is a bit iffy, but they're definitely not new MBV material)
  • Bilinda is due to record her vocals around late March
  • There are another four or five festival dates scheduled/due to be announced

Yep ^^^ THKW sounded like burning, it’s alwats got that quality but on this version it’s pretty crazy.

Blown a wish just sound a bit like ‘fluff on the needle’ if you know what I mean. Everything else is improved to my ears.

Anyone else finding blown a wish a little bit ‘muffled’
I'll have another listen. The main one for me was To Here Knows When: it was quite disturbing by the end. Just shows how comfortable I'd become listening to my other one.
