Unwed Sailor : The Marionette and The Music Box hardbound books are on their way from Iceland to the US. Should be here in a week or two and then out to everyone who pre-ordered.
Lacquers for Starflyer 59 : Old 2×10″ are on their way to the factory and plates for Starflyer 59′s one-sided LP, Portuguese Blues, should have arrived. Portuguese Blues is a return to some older guitar riff intensive days, but with a little dirty blues sound mixed in. These should be out in the relatively near future, perhaps sooner than expected, possibly early July. Covers for Early Day Miners : Deep Harbor one-sided LP and The Six Parts Seven : The Attitudes of Collapse one-sided LP are getting printed and the vinyl should be underway, as well. These should be ready sometime in June. Saxon Shore : Four Months of Darkness LPs will be here soon, test pressings are on their way. The Trouble with Sweeney : I Know You Destroy! vinyl has been delayed due to cover image resolution issues, but these should be solved shortly. Busy times for vinyl releases here at the label. We’re earning the middle name we so desparately want to keep.
I was at Four Tet, Manitoba, and Prefuse 73. I went to see Four Tet which didn’t translate as well as I’d hope to the live set, but Manitoba was completely impressive, as was Prefuse 73. Good times, but not as good as the time Dryw was having…
Colin, Dave, and I are sorting out a return trip to Los Angeles, hopefully after I’m back for a work trip to France.
Farewell to Justin Kay as he wanders across the US. Yes, this is a blog…
