Imperial Topaz - Full of Grace lp
So, it’s taken me a month and a half to finally get around to posting a review for Full of Grace. Despite really digging the Imperial cassette from a few years ago, when I initially got this, I hated it. Arriving in the mail after an exceptionally shitty day at work and I was more in the mood for listening to something like KARP or Unsane, which resulted in this album being discarded upon my couch.
After several weeks of somehow not being sat upon and broken, I popped it back on the phonograph and, surprise, I found myself enjoying it. Full of Grace is eight tracks of ghostly female vocals, shimmering synthesizers, and minimalistic drum patterns; very ethereal and just a little haunting at times. While I’m more drawn to the ambient side of Imperial Topaz, there’s a certain pop element that’s not unpleasant. This is definitely an album you have to be in the right headspace when listening to. I’m digging these laid back vibes.
Go get it…
I’m finally getting around to printing the shots I took in New Orleans back in January. There has been a series of incidents that have occurred with getting these photos printed that a superstitious person might attribute to the fact I took photos of Marie Laveau’s tombs without leaving any tributes. Just today, a 1st semester student offered to rinse and run my prints through the dryer with hers and she ended up creasing almost half of my stuff.
Fuck yea, look what arrived in the mail today! That’s the metallic purple Kabuto Mushi MKII from Godbeast. I also got a pearlescent black one & a silver Ultra Corps one but this dude was the gnarlyest.
Just wanted to remind you that my toys are way cooler than yours.

I just noticed you and that cat have matching colored hair/fur. Between that and the disgusting floor, I can understand why the cat hates you.
