Hear “Huffy” the way it was meant to be heard, whichever one that is:

Our personal supply of several vinyl colors has sold out — but fear not! Foreseeing this dire eventuality, we sent a box of each (under cloak of night) to a different retailer. Click to be taken to the secret stash of remaining copies: Some Kinda Melon, True Denim, Lemon Beach Sunshine, Keylime Yum, Plum Damage
Yep, you’ve got great ears. You want to hear “Huffy,” the new studio album from We Are Scientists, the way it was meant to be heard, whatever that is. Impossible to know for sure whether that’s on vinyl, tape, or CD — we certainly don’t know — so the safe bet is to grab one of each. That way, you can open them up at home and decide for yourself, or keep all three around in case someone who really knows their sh*t comes for a visit.
A little more about what you’ll be getting.
The CD and vinyl arrive in a package that requires some assembly. Whether it’s the spacious gatefold of the vinyl packaging, or the never-ending horizons of the CD’s trifold enclosure, you’ll be met with a potentially daunting amount of open wall space. But the included sticker packs — plus whatever additional materials you can muster — present an opportunity. Will you create the ultimate version of “Huffy,” the one that perfectly articulates your understanding of the world and your place in it? Maybe, instead, you’ll slap all of the stickers on your dusty old guitar case — covering up the old, worse stickers — and hit the road so you can make your mark. Or, just put the stickers on the box of whatever cereal you’re having for dinner, and throw that box away in a day or two when the cereal’s gone. That’s fine too! You’ll still have two great slabs of sound.
Take the vinyl a step past sanity by hand-selecting from 10 available colors, including Earth Scoop, KeylimeYum, and Cherry Laser. (Check out the swatch wheel in the product images to understand exactly what’s possible.)
Of course, the cassette is a different story. Each of Huffy’s five cassette colors offers the entirety of “Huffy” on Side A, and its own special collection of additional material on the flip-side — a selection pulled from the tape-only demos, acoustic versions, commentary, sketches, and recorded boasts.
Five cassettes — five different experiences.
And, exclusively for pre-orders, we’ll include transparent stickers that we’ve autographed with a permanent marker. Place them on your album artwork wherever you choose to imply that we consent to whatever unhinged thing you’ve done.
Now there’s nothing stopping you from determining which version of “Huffy” sounds best. If you figure it out, let us know.
