As it should. A little late but Im catching up on this thread.
I still consistently listen to most of the songs off the album. It's definitely my favorite of anything Ive listened to all year, even beating out Channel Orange by Frank Ocean, which I thought was amazing.

More importantly, Trojans by Atlas Genius has now officially been released, and there is an accompanying video. I can only link to it right now unfortunately, as it's only on MTV.com - it debuted exclusively on MTVU so I am guessing that is why. Hopefully it makes it to YouTube soon.

Love "Trojans" thanks to your heads up (though I think I had heard it once or twice before that). Like their other songs on the EP. Outside of the xx cover what else can I dig up of theirs? I'd like to get more into them, but my level of enthusiasm is going to be tempered until I find a full album :-/ Any updates from them?
Looks like they're extremely busy touring. Kinda crazy that by the time they come out with their first full album it might be 18-20 months after the first single.

They had a new track on the FIFA 13 soundtrack. Other than that, there is nothing right now. They've always maintained that they're working on the debut LP, but like you said they've been doing a lot of touring to raise awareness. It is kind of crazy that Trojans will be so old once they release the debut LP, but I suppose from their take, we're all very early adopters. Trojans was picked up and started getting airplay on indie stations and the internet before they had even officially formed as a band. I would imagine the "official" release of Trojans came out of the EP coming out, and now it has a video for them to use to market it. It will be kind of funny if it takes off and gets a of alternative rock radio airplay...I've been listening to the song for about a year and a half
I definitely want a full album, too. I hope they stop touring after their scheduled dates and start recording.
