Finally got my Matt Alber vinyl

Months ago when Matt Alber was raising funds to record and release his new record Wind Sand Stars, one of the options for funding was a vinyl copy of the album. It would come also with a bamboo USB Flash Drive (which I honestly didn’t really care about) but hearing the record on vinyl was what I really wanted.

Here’s his video for Handsome Man..

(BTW, I have offered to direct a video for Matt, even submitting a treatment for his cover of Everything But The Girl’s ‘Missing’ but so far no bites… I’ll keep trying, I’d love to do more music videos).

Well the album came out quite a while ago but the vinyl had numerous delays, one of which was faulty USB Flash Drives. So I cared about those even less than before.

Well, today when I got back from my Key West vacation, I had the record waiting for me. LOVE it… the live instruments and Matt’s voice sound wonderful coming out of my speakers and it’s the perfect record for post-vacation recovery morning.

And then I popped in that (admittedly cool) Flash Drive. OK so… it doesn’t just have the new record on it, it’s got the ENTIRE Matt Alber catalogue on it. All the albums, the Live EP, the unreleased B-sides, the dance remixes and alternate versions… PLUS it’s got all three of his fantastic videos, lyrics for all the albums, lots of photos AND a free PDF copy of his semi-nude Meat Magazine appearance. So I will begrudgingly admit that waiting for the Flash Drive was worth it.

The vinyl is still available at his Website.

Follow him on Twitter and Facebook.
