I’ve been away to Boston for the past few weeks and got to spend time with the very excellent Dr. Randall of Particularity of Jetenderpaul. Around this time in 1999, we were planning a road trip to Savannah for the video shoot of “Our Future’s Passed” at Savannah College of Art and Design. The release of this video on the Jetenderpaul Presents The Modal Lines record ushered btv into the modern era. Their lo-fi indie pop remains some of our very favorite.
Bosque Brown has been very busy. Mara and Ryan went to Europe and played a couple of shows in anticipation of the release of Baby in Europe on France’s Fargo Records. Bosque Brown will also be playing CMJ in New York City, Wednesday, 21 October at Local 269 at 10pm. We have a few live videos to post of Bosque Brown performances and will do that in the next few days.
For the autumn, we will be properly releasing Erik Enocksson’s Farväl Falkenberg on LP. We will also start work on the 15th anniversary deluxe re-issue version of Starflyer 59 Gold on vinyl. We have many plans, but few details on that one. Vinyl re-issues have been consuming much of our spare thoughts as of late.
For Philadelphians, the very excellent Wovenhand will be playing at Johnny Brenda’s this Thursday, 8 October. If you recall, btv co-released the vinyl edition of Wovenhand’s Consider the Birds. Ten Stones was released most recently on Sounds Familyre.
Speaking of Sounds Familyre, our friends Dan, Elin, Lenny, and Marian Smith have launched the Great Comfort Records label. Their first release is Come, O Spirit, an anthology of hymns and spiritual songs, and features some of our old friends including Damien Jurado, David Bazan, Denison Witmer, and Rosie Thomas.
Another old friend, Joey Sweeney, has launched the Philebrity label. We wish him the very best. The first release is a new album from Philadelphia’s Blood Feathers which includes Drew Mills, formerly of Aspera.
Some friends and I got a chance to catch our old friend David Bazan at a West Philadelphia house show in late August (thanks Sean). The performance with just a guitar and no microphone was an inspiring one. Would love to see more folks play like this, for sure. Also got to catch Akron/Family play in September here in Philadelphia. This band gives one of the best live shows around.
Oh yeah, some folks from Reels of White Softly Flow joined up with more friends for a secret performance this past August. We’ll probably post an mp3 here shortly.
It’s been a while for updates, but we’re still here. It was quite an effort to get mewithoutyou It’s All Crazy!… 2xLPs out and we’ve been resting a bit. The band took to the road in late June/July and managed to have LPs for most of the dates. I was able to see the band play in Chicago and central PA which made up for not being able to see the record release show in Philadelphia. Thanks to everyone for buying the 2xLPs. The band is out on tour now with more for sale, go see them if you get the chance. In the meantime, our good friends at We Are Lancaster just posted the video for “The Fox, The Crow, and The Cookie” which is the subject of the 4th sided etching on the 2xLP. We’ll work on finding the source and embedding it here, but for now, follow the link.
Bosque Brown are preparing to do some fall touring in the US and Europe. Unwed Sailor is playing to go out in December with The Native Lights, Johnathon’s new band with Bryce from Ester Drang and others.
Yndi Halda have been working on some demos for the follow up to enjoy eternal bliss. Hopefully more details on progress soon.
Years ago, one of our early releases was the LP version of Huntingtons’ High School Rock. That long out of print LP is being released digitally as a remastered version including the LP bonus track. Burnt Toast Vinyl also released Rock ‘N Roll Habits for the New Wave and a re-mastered version will soon be released digitally, as well. More details to follow.
