I would’ve screenshot it but I’m a Mac user and didn’t feel like being a jerk.
Anyway, back to The Whistle Stripes… the band is making Icky Thump available in a few different formats, which I think is totally awesome.
The USB drives can be had post-divorce style, that is just Meg or just Jack, OR fans can remarry the bandmates by purchasing both USBs for $99.
The vinyl: $30.
The opportunity to playact as defrocked priest conversing with miniature plastic entities: priceless.
It turns out The Whistle Stripes are also music marketing geniuses. Not at all surprising as the majority of cool music marketing initiatives come from the bands themselves, but The LAist reports the band will perform a free show at the location of the old Tower Records shop on Sunset, transforming it for the occasion to Icky Thump Records.
