So, BOC decided to get creative and released some stuff. Specifically, they released 12 inch vinyl records containing robots cryptically speaking numbers and covers with stuff like ------/------/------/------/XXXXXX/------/.

As you can imagine, there are rumors flying all over the web about a new album coming out, as well as people trying to figure out what it all means.

Another snippet got released (699742), but it isn't known where this goes in the number pattern. (skip to 39:22 to hear the snippet)

Make sense as one of hints BOC had was "cosecha", which is Spanish for "harvest". Nice to see that they are releasing an album in less than two months. Also, all the audio hint thingies have been released: Click here if you want to listen to all of them.

This whole thing started with a vinyl with the code "936557". That vinyl is selling for $4,350 as of this post , which is funny because it was sold for $20-ish and the eBay auction started at $0.99. Also, if you look in the auction history, someone attempted to bump that up to $10K. This isn't surprising considering how rare it is, but it's kind of ridiculous.

This has definitely been one of the more interesting things to come out of this Record Store Day. (And if anything, that eBay auction shows you just how ridiculous collectors can get when it comes to some bands...)

And the vinyl has been sold for a good $5,700. The guy who sold that album now has some money to live when he's out of college, though, so I hope he's able to pay off some of those bills and whatnot.

Also, Japan is apparently getting the album a little earlier than everyone else, with a release coming out on June 5, as opposed to June 10 in Europe and June 11 in the U.S.

Yeah, it was creepy. Haven't listened to the album on full, but that's definitely true for some songs (1969). In fact, it seems like all of the BOC albums are soothing when you just listen to them, but creepy once you actually start knowing what these songs are about.

Also, quite a bump you just did there. =p
