Some fun news for fans of post-rock and/or colored vinyl and/or flower arranging…
Shy, Low has repressed their 2015 gem Hiraeth, and they’re offering two snazzy colored-vinyl options: “Cowslip,” which is highlighter yellow with orange pinwheels, and “Forget-Me-Not” — a yellow-in-electric blue with white splatter design.

I do know that it’s worth snagging copy over at Bandcamp before they’re all gone.
Update: The band shared the following via Facebook:
We also have some available locally and will have some for upcoming shows. Not many, so if you wait, you may lose out.
