Roadside Monument : I Am the Day of Current Taste LP
Tooth & Nail Records is astonished and delighted to bring you Seattle Indie Rock heroes Roadside Monument’s I Am the Day of Current Taste to vinyl for the very first time!
NPR music critic Lars Gotrich writes of I Am the Day of Current Taste in the insert’s massive retrospective essay, “it is a hulking rock-and-roll motorcycle apocalypse.. and that’s just the first minute and a half… the kind of opening blitzkrieg that thins out the herd; only the deepest listeners survive.”
Co-produced by those taxiriding, art formatters @ UnoriginalVinyl, the original, collaged-assembled-by-hand album artwork for I Am the Day of Current Taste had to be painfully recreated in 7 individual layers. While such bizarre, aberrant artwork was being restored, they thought, “Why not also add an anaglyphic layer of 3D viewing texture to the front and back jacket, and throw in a pair of Blue/Red 3D Glasses with every copy?”
Available for pre-order on 31 August 2022 at 1PM EDT/10 AM PDT. 500 copies were pressed on “Clear Orange/Gold with Blue & Red Smoke” Vinyl, and will be evenly split & sold on both the T&N MerchNow Webstore and here at Burnt Toast Vinyl’s Webstore. 100 additional copies will be sold exclusively by the band at their reunion shows this fall.
Due to a major pressing plant oversight, there are actually /500 copies pressed on clear Orange Gold with Blue and Red Smoke, and an extra, completely randomized “Clear Yellow with Blue Smoke” /100 vinyl copies that have been distributed amongst the band, T&N, and BTV. Your guess is as good as ours which color you’ll have show up because we don’t have the ability to open and sort all 600 copies to separate them when the are all located in a mixture of Seattle, Pennsylvania, and New York, but there’s only a 16.6% chance you’ll receive a yellow copy. Here is a photo to show you the color comparison.
(note: Burnt Toast Vinyl copies will ship USPS Media Mail in oversized Bags Unlimited Mighty Music Mailer with a cardboard pad. Insurance and padded poly envelope overwrap available for a nominal added fee of $1 each.)
