I received the test pressings for Saxon Shore : Four Months of Darkness LP and Early Day Miners : Deep Harbor one-sided LP today in the mail. It’s a bit like Christmas when this stuff shows up. Quite exciting and foretelling a very busy summer for vinyl releases at btv.
Hey, did you visit The Onion this week yet (it is Wednesday, all of you cubicle drones)? Wander on over to The Onion AV Club and see the nice words they had to say about The Marionette and The Music Box. Another reason for me to be smiling this evening on minimal sleep and preparing to fly to Amsterdam tomorrow.
