Two decades after releasing the widely beloved, almost universally praised classic of beautifully nauseating psychedelic loudness Loveless, My Bloody Valentine just, y'know, casually released a follow-up via its website. When MBV mastermind Kevin Shields starting dropping hints last week about the album's imminent release, there was plenty of reason to doubt him: Rumors of a follow-up have popped up infrequently over the years before Camp Shields always went quiet again. And though we haven't downloaded it yet, a new album—titled simply mbv—is for sale over at the band's website. Apparently a crush of fans trying to download it knocked the site offline for a while, but all appears to be well now. We'll get you a review at some point in the next couple of decades, or when the drugs wear off, or Monday or something. Flange! (New song below, too.)
