Nap Eyes - I'm Bad Now LPLabel: Paradise of Bachelors
The acclaimed Canadians return with an ambitious, allusive third album that achieves a new sonic clarity, depth, and range to match the effortless melodies and extraordinary writing. It's the band's most transparent and personal set of songs to date, in which singer Nigel Chapman interrogates social, psychological, and spiritual milieus for clues about the elusive nature of knowledge.
The deluxe 140g virgin vinyl LP features heavy-duty reverse board jacket, color inner sleeve with band photos and lyrics, and high-res Bandcamp download code. The pink vinyl edition (the first-ever PoB color pressing) is limited to 575 copies. The CD features six-panel gatefold jacket with LP replica artwork and lyrics.
