Vinyl Arriving, Esperanto Lyrics, and continued Gizzard love

Helloooooo!

By now many of you have received your copy of Polygondwanaland and we're so excited to see your beautiful and heartfelt posts on Instagram, Facebook, etc. It feels like we're part if a big King Gizzard loving family and we love it. When you post pics please tag @vinylmoonco and @toomanyrecords_ so we can follow along!

The Lyrics...

Some of you have been asking about the lyrics in the booklet and why they aren't in English so we figured it would be a good time to explain!

When the King Gizzard guys dropped this record and gave the world rights to do what they wanted with it (here) they included a bunch of things in the files. Sure, they included the music files and the front cover art, but there was also a folder of random photos (many of which we used) and a doc with the lyrics... in Esperanto... 

Download the original ZIP file that King Gizzard released HERE

So if you dig through the files you will see that they didn't include lyrics in English at all. Just Esperanto. As with all things King Gizzard, we decided it best to not wonder why and just roll with it. After some minor edits like removing a dead URL from one of the lyrics (Again, we didn't ask why...) we printed the lyrics exactly the way King Gizz gave them to us. 

For the the lyrics in English I recommend this version at Genius HERE

The great thing about Genius is that both the lyrics and artwork are annotated with explanations, theories, and a ton of insights into the band's world that are fascinating to read. (These are the people who have been asking why?) Dive in to learn the connection between "Tetrachromacy" and "The Fourth Color" as well as who the "one-eyed people" are. Yes!

Anyway, this community of King Gizzard fans is awesome and we love you. Keep rocking and we will talk more soon... 

Cheers,

Brandon & Matt

Mid-February Delivery & Gatefold printing videos

Hello all!

Exciting news! We just heard from the pressing plant that they are pressing POLYGONDWANALAND any day now and will be shipped to us in about 2 weeks. We will immediately be turning them right around to ship out to you! That puts us on track for shipping during the 2nd or 3rd week of February. 

Hold on tight! In the meantime, some behind the scenes...

Making the Tip-On Gatefold Jackets

I recently stopped by Stoughton Printing to see the gatefold jackets getting made and grabbed some video & photos.  See below for the very fast and loud magic that is 4-color offset printing!

Those printed sheets then get trimmed and glued onto thick card stock and assembled by hand to create the classic tip-on style jacket!

 That is all for now! We're so excited to have these almost ready to ship.

Artwork Preview

Happy Holidays!

Any of you who are Vinyl Moon members know that we don't give away any previews of the artwork each month. Vinyl Moon strongly believes in the power of holding the artwork in your hand the first time you see it. Because of that, I have been hesitant to give any previews of the artwork and design we have been putting together for this release...

With that said, a number of people have been asking to see what we have put together and since this Kickstarter project is a group effort I have decided to give in and share a bit of what we have cooking. 

INSIDE GATEFOLD

When King Gizz released the files for the record they included a folder of great images as well. The amazing Samplerman reworked them all into an absolutely mind-bending psychedelic wonderscape that will make up the inside of the gatefold.

Samplerman also created the artwork for VINYL MOON 018: Intrepid Curves.

BACK COVER

The back cover of the jacket is a piece that was created & donated by Beau Micheli who also used images from the band to create a design that perfectly matches the vibe of the front cover artwork by Jason Galea and creates a wonderfully seamless feel for the outside of the jacket.

BOOKLET ART

Below are the pieces that were created or curated specifically for this Polygondwanaland release and donated to the 16 page 11"x11" booklet.

Moon_Patrol is also creating artwork for an upcoming release of VINYL MOON. (But that is a secret!) 

The rest of the booklet will remain a secret until it arrives in your hot hands. Gotta hold on to some traditions!

JACKET MOCK-UP

Here is the full mockup of the tip-on gatefold jacket. The jackets will be made by the world renowned Stoughton printing and will feel so classy you will want to wear a button up shirt when holding them.

That is all for now! I hope you are all drooling as much as we are for these records :)
