      Apart from a Radiohead vinyl, Bassnectar is the only artist who’s albums I’ve ALWAYS paid for. Right there with you bud! I’m getting this on vinyl for sure!

  • Rust Natasha

    “Boomerang” will be my ultimate favorite track on this album (so far), just like how “Falling” is my favorite on your last album.

  • Vince

    I have mad support for you Lorin, but please don’t give us dates if you aren’t gonna follow through with them. I feel really let down, I was expecting to be swimming in a vat full of steamy new nectar today…

        Bassnectar posted this on facebook on June 30. “Bassnectar

        THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for the support. This was the largest amount of downloads we have ever had in a single day for “Upside Down” and that’s just a little teaser. Again, the theme of this new record is “Divergent Spectrum” which means every song is different in style, energy, sound and mood. So thanks for enjoying the taste test! We will have full previews of all 15 tracks up july 5th at”

          I really don’t feel like it’s that big of a deal, at least considering how much free music we get. Patience is a virtue.

          • Skymcd

            I am not meaning to complain or be negative, i’m just a huge fan and really anticipating this album and have been waiting for today ever since I read that post.

            Dont mean to respond so late on this but just had to add a lil somethin! I respect skymcd being such a great fan but as a fan you cant rush art. Music is art in my opinion and if you try to rush a masterpiece it comes out like shit. AUGUST 2ND will be a great day and we should all be thankful for the amazing samples we have been provided 🙂 Being a fan is great but you also have to be understanding of ever changing circumstances and that your favorite artists is touring NONSTOP! Not trying to be rude, but give Lorin time, the more he takes, the more he has you, the fan, in mind !

          • thanks jordan. that understanding is REALLY kind, and as a human it means so much to read words like this

        • Shasta Lee

          Like he’s also said…
          “Divergent Spectrum was supposed to be released in April. So things are way behind, and there are always compromises to make, that’s life.”
          I’m sure he’s been busy like usual & it won’t be too
          long before the rest are released! Keep
          checkin’ in to the site, they’ll be up before
          ya know ittttttt.
