Release date: 12/10/2013
I've been a fan of the Faintest Ideas from their very first EP as the Javelins, and have followed their every move, from the EPs on their own Yellow Mica label to their sole proper full-length album on Magic Marker, and every last single/compilation they ever did. That said, this collects every last single/compilation track they ever did as the Faintest Ideas, and adds over a dozen bonus tracks, including an aborted single, other unreleased tracks from their last days as a band, and an entire radio session, before closing off with the very first recording the band ever did (before the line-up was even solidified!), making for a completist's dream!
