Caspian’s Tertia is an album that needs no formal introduction in my collection (see below). We’re long time friends. But, for the unacquainted, Tertia is Caspian’s third album, originally released in 2009. A beautiful zenith of all things in the post-rock/instrumental rock genre: from the delicate to the hammering. Why waste any time – listen to the entire record free and legally, right here.
The first pressing of Tertia quietly sold out, so Mylene Sheath just had it repressed. Their first repressing in label history, actually. To celebrate they upgraded the jackets, from a full color 20-pt single pocket to a full color 20-pt double gatefold. The 2nd pressing no longer includes the beautiful booklet that accompanied the first pressing – full of photography and poetry the complemented the music on Tertia. But, I imagine it was far too expensive to produce and still keep this repressed at a price point that’s appetizing to new fans. And my god do these discs sound immense. Some of the first press (hazes) suffered from lots of surface noise. This 2nd press is full and rich, comparable to the black 180 gram OG edition.
White copies of the album are long sold out. But a few copies on gold remain and can be bought from Mylene Sheath here.
