    And seriously, why hasn't this leaked? I wonder how they've done the advance/promo process differently this time.

    Hey, new to the board! Anyone here a member of atease.com? Shut down? Hacked? Hmmm?

    Chunge, I ask the same question when I look for a leak of the album every day. Sorry Spoon-I've preordered all the formats so not much guilt here.

    Yeah, same here. I've preordered it. This will be the first album in years that I've been anticipating that I haven't heard a month or two from release date.

    That's great. I listened to Vampire Weekend's album last night. Love that. But I'm VERY excited for next Tuesday to hear Transference!!!!! That's a great site by the way.

    I might still try and hold off listening until the release date. That way it will feel more special when i'm holding the physical release in my hands.

    Holy shit, I'm listening to it right now. NPR messed up and had the link on this site: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=122279793&ft=1&f=98679384

    I'm listening to it on my iPhone and it's fucking amazing. I think if you have an iPhone right now too, the link might still be available to you. I know viewing the site through a desktop computer, no links to listen are there...

    Listening on ipod touch right now!!!!! This is the most exciting thing this new year so far! If I wasn't at work I would be lining the recording into my computer. I'm only on track 2.....i might stop becuase I want to hear it when I get the recording. It's so hard not to though!!!!!!!

    Isn't this great? I probably shouldn't have posted about it because I bet there has to be someone there at Merge who's working on stopping this. I'm on my second listen of this album and loving it so much.

    There is a 128kbs leak of this on Pirate Bay now. I'm guessing it is a recorded version of the NPR stream though I'm not sure.

    Look what I got in the mail today a whole week early:

    Transference is here!

    I hope everyone else that's ordered through Merge gets their order this week too :)

    hey starbright, which shipping option did you choose, by the way? I just ordered and just did the standard. I hope I made the right choice.

    I went with the standard shipping. I was thinking of paying extra for the priority shipping, but I figured the latest it would get to me would be the Friday of that week which would've been ok with me.

    That's great you got it early!!! You lucked out. I've had bad experiences with pre-orders...getting it later than release date. So I wasn't going to take my chances. I'm getting it from the record store Tuesday morning January 19th at 9 am. The pin would be nice to get though!

    Starbright, I am so jealous! I pre-ordered from Merge, too, but was nervous because I also pre-ordered the "Written in Reverse" 7" from them but it didn't arrive until the Saturday after its release date. This gives me a little hope that I'll get Transference on or before the release date!

    Ahh, so from the pictures the cd is orange red color, like the cover. So I hope the vinyl is the same!

    favorite songs so far? i really like "before destruction", i think it's their first great opener. "i saw the light" and "out go the lights" are early favorites as well.

    'mean red spider' leaked on a few websites today too.

    Chunge - I'm in the Los Angeles area. I really have no idea why I got it so early. I contacted Merge a couple days ago to fix something in my order and was nice in my email to them- maybe that helped? ;)

    Favorite song for me so far is "Who Makes Your Money." I've heard it a couple times live, but on the album it's brilliant. Same for "Trouble Comes Running," it's really amazing how they've improved on these songs to make it sound sooooo good on this album.
