The audio master for the Damien Jurado LP has arrived. The release compiles songs from various cassette releases before the Sub Pop years. It will be a limited edition (1000 copies) vinyl only release and will be in stores in May 2003, exclusively distributed by the kind folks at Secretly Canadian.
Some fairly big news for us here…Ester Drang has officially joined the Jade Tree roster. Their full-length Infinite Keys will be available on cd from Jade Tree and on vinyl from Burnt Toast Vinyl in stores in April. The vinyl will be available direct from the band and btv website sometime earlier. We’re still pals and in love, etc. and wish them the very best of success. They’re recording the album in Texas as I type this. They will be touring with Denison Witmer and Unwed Sailor in March 2003.
Not much other news, other than for me to make fun of everyone being really cold on the east coast while I am toasty warm here in Asia.
