Well, I haven't listened to their earlier stuff in many years and have set myself up for disappointed since it's been a decade. And all the recent releases from my favorite acts have been lackluster. This just brings the eerie and serious instrumentation I love.
Since it hasn't been resolved yet I also want to suggest fanny packs as another intricate solution to the problem. Especially that rick fanny from 09 with the studs would look pretty badass and keep unnecessary bulges out of your jeans.
I don't think it looks too horrible unless it turns out incredibly extreme -- like the guys on sufu who intentionally keep chew/zippo/wallet in the same pockets for deep fades.
Anyway, I tend to alternate pockets where I keep my keys/phone/wallet so the fading has been fairly uniform in that region.
