I met with Matt and Justin from Aspera yesterday and heard two of the songs for their one-sided LP. The recording should be done in mid-June for a release in September sometime. AM/FM is also underway with their recording that should also be done in mid-June. Lenola has just committed to participating in the one-sided LP series. They’ve been writing many songs for their forthcoming full-length. This is really an exciting series for me and hopefully the bands involved.
16 May 2002 : Brooklyn, NY. Denison Witmer with John Vanderslice at Lillies.
I’m listening to the re-issue of Danielson Famile’s A Prayer for Every Hour which is due for release by Secretly Canadian in the next month. An additional cd contains the first public danielson performance and the video for Headz in da Cloudz. This was a revolutionary record in 1995 and is still groundbreaking today. I’ve also been listening to Early Day Miners : Let Us Garlands Bring LP (Western Vinyl/Secretly Canadian) which sounds incredible on 180g vinyl and Yume Bitsu : The Golden Vessyl of Sound 2xLP (K Recs) which has an entire live show on the 4th side.
