Happy 2011

It’s been awhile, but btv is alive and kicking, working hard behind the scenes on some releases for 2011 and beyond. A new etching has been done for the steven r. smith one-sided LP, so we’re expecting test pressings very very soon. Emperor X is hard at work at new songs. We’re not exactly sure what the final fate of everything is, but we’re excited. Lots of ideas for the vinyl issue of Damien Jurado’s Rehearsals for Departure that will happen in 2011. Lots of ongoing work for the re-issue of Starflyer 59′s Gold on vinyl in 2011. Planning a one-sided LP with A Lily, featuring James from Yndi Halda. A maxi single from neo-goths Low&Behold. And, finally, maybe?, a full-length from our South Korean friends Byul…

Happy New Year!

Thanks for your support during 2008. It’s been a very busy year for us. Unwed Sailor’s Little Wars was released in the Spring and toured several times in the US and recently in Europe in support. We were also happy to release Denison Witmer’s Carry the Weight and Starflyer 59′s Dial M on vinyl. We were very relieved to wrap up the Starflyer 59 Ghosts of the Future 7″ series after a lot of hard work coordinating production, assembling 7″, and mailing out so many small boxes. We’re also very excited about Soporus’ first full-length 24,110 arriving just in time for a quiet winter season. 2008 saw the completion of Bosque Brown’s Baby album and great progress in our Byul full-length release. Before the end of the year, we sent off Baby to be mastered to vinyl along with Erik Enocksson’s Farväl Falkenberg soundtrack.

For 2009, we’re looking forward to releases from Bosque Brown, Byul, Erik Enocksson, Birchville Cat Motel, Steven R. Smith, and Half-handed Cloud.

For those interested in year end lists, Matt Stone (Soporus, Saxon Shore) and I wrote some quick lists for our friends at Tangzine: here and here. Feel free to read and make fun of us. Incidentally, our old friends Christian Wargo (ex-Scientific) and Josh Tillman (ex-Saxon Shore) are in Fleet Foxes who had their Sun Giantep and self-titled full-length selected as Pitchfork’s top release of 2008. We’re more than happy to sell you copies of their earlier releases.

Wishing you the best for 2009…
