it's good to hear he's still massively busy.... let's just hope those albums actually come out this year.

my favorite moments (i've pretty much started skipping the rest):

desperation passion intro
dutch me
no zipper
come my way
in peices
another no answer [!!!]
pull rmx
P rmx
desperation passion rmx
horne of plenty
maushaus
spring break lucky streak

"chasing an echo" was also a nice touch, and so was "closing credits"
and i would sincerely love a heavier, lo-fi guitar, keys, and mouth drums remix of "spring break lucky streak" with rsm on guitar, am i right?

though really hard to listen to at points, i really love that they put the different layers and bits and pieces of the songs first on the track list before diving into the full versions/remixes. all the banter is great, too. it creates a very... dare i say... intimate look into the steviepink dynamic. and god, anyone wishing for some of the old school ariel pink lo-fi (myself included) got their wish fucking granted with "in pieces" and "another no answer." i really hope they do more. i mean moore.

Ordered the KKG ep from Rough Trade, although it's on their presale and doesn't have a release date... bothersome...

The unedited Ku Klux Glam from Bandcamp is one of my favourite pop music (in the quasi-intellectual sense as defined by Doctor Maus) albums of the last few years, second only to M.I.A.'s /\/\ /\ Y /\ and Australian-Sudanese rapper Bangs' REFLECTIONS. i believe KKG and Maya to be the only two albums to have successfully parodied the growing problem of Internet Art in an effective manner.
