byul masters, bosque brown mixes, erik enocksson slated for release on btv

It’s turning into an almost overwhelming period of activity around btv hq. The kind woman at the post office found my package and I now have the byul master, as well as some incredible releases that they did in Korea. I’m really excited to be able to get to release this byul record, they’ve fully captured our attention and we’ve been raging a byul obsession for quite some time now. Their graphics and packaging are simply some of the most amazing I’ve seen and I can’t wait to see what the artwork looks like for the US release.
The mixes for Bosque Brown’s Baby have been in heavy rotation along with the byul master. Both are set to get mastered over the next couple of weeks. It’s looking like late winter/early spring 2009 releases. These will come out on cd and LP.
I’d like to take this time to officially announce that Burnt Toast Vinyl will be issuing Erik Enocksson’s Farväl Falkenberg soundtrack on cd in the US. This is a beautiful album and originally issued by Denmark’s Kning Disk. We’re working on a formal release date. Ever since I got this record late last year, it’s been in heavy rotation, seriously one of my favorite records in recent memory. I’ve been pursuing doing something with Erik and we’ve finally hammered out the details. Kning has also released a 7″ and we’re working on getting that out in the US as well, too. I would really love to see this issued on vinyl, but we’re still working on these details.
My good friend Jamie is visiting from Mississippi. We got to see Stereolab play on Wednesday night. She went to see Fleet Foxes (hail Tillman and Wargo) while Willi$, the Commissioner, and I had standing room only tickets to watch the Phils put the beat down on the Brewers. My throat’s a little sore from taunting C.C. during Brett Myers’ epic at bats and screaming for Victorino’s grandslam. It was the most exciting baseball game I’ve ever seen, mostly because we were there in person. Tonight, Jamie, Rich, and I (and Willi$ if he makes up his mind) are joining up with Witmer to see Damien Jurado in the Unitarian chapel. Should be exciting. It’s been a far too long since I’ve seen Damien play. It’s show season in a big way. I’m planning to see The New Year play next week followed by Jimmy Dale Gilmore in Chicago at the Old Town School of Folk Music. See you for the rock.

Unwed Sailor is on the road again! Their first show is tonight in a week and half long jaunt that will find them hitting the Forecastle Festival in Louisville on Saturday. Be sure to see them bring the rock.
Yndi Halda are packing their bags and making last minute preparations to make their way to the US. Their visas were approved and they will be arriving this Sunday. I’ve updated a couple of dates for their monthlong itinerary. It’s their first American tour, so you can’t miss them!
If you happen to be in the area, Byul is playing in Seoul this Friday. Hopefully Mike from Soporus will make the show if his plane lands on time. Here’s an awesome flyer for the show. Their album has finally been recorded and they’re working on artwork as we speak.

I’ve made a few updates to the Unwed Sailor tour in June and to the Yndi Halda dates in Asia for late July/early August.
I was at the sold out Unwed Sailor/Murder by Death show at Schuba’s last night. It’s always great to be able to see Unwed Sailor play and the set was really tight. I think the dates in June should be pretty impressive. The band is making plans for more touring throughout the rest of the summer and the fall, as well as plans to finish recording Little Wars. I’m excited to see them again in Philadelphia on 9 June with Rosetta and Soporus.
Starflyer 59 Ghosts of the Future 7″ test pressings are en route to subscribers. The Commissioner has done his good work, as always.
Byul is working to finish up the recording to their upcoming release and will be starting to design the packaging soon.
