Vinyl, Bosque Brown, Erik Enocksson, new RSS feed

This has been an extremely busy time. Especially with the Phillies in the World Series. The city is wild.

We’re off to see White Rainbow play a house party tonight before the game and are super super excited!

Test pressings for Starflyer 59′s Dial M have finally arrived. These have been sent out to all test pressing customers who should be receiving your LPs at the same time as the band. 

Test pressings for Denison Witmer’s Carry the Weight also arrived just after the sf59 ones and were immediately sent out to all test pressing customers.

We’re wrapping up the final tweaks to Bosque Brown’s Baby design and this should be in production by the end of October. The mastering has been completed by Dave Willingham at the Echo Lab in Denton, TX and the record is sounding great. Chris Flemmons’ production is just right. We’re excited to say the least. We’re planning to have a bonus 7″ with the LP version that will feature two songs that Mara recorded in Austin a while back. She amazing played two covers in one take to tape that sounded incredible.

We’ve also received artwork and audio for Erik Enocksson’s Farväl Falkenberg. This will be out in late winter or so. We’re also working on doing some vinyl for it with Kning Disk and will likely be importing or re-pressing copies of Erik’s 7″ (because we haven’t done a 7″ in a while).

For all of you reading this in your RSS reader, you’ve probably grown frustrated by half-coherent titles and weird formating. I’ve been beta testing a new blog software with much better RSS capabilities. You can take a look at the results through the News tab and you should also re-subscribe to this new RSS feed. We’ll be transitioning to the new blog engine over the next few weeks, so consider yourself warned. There are also some plans to transition the shopping cart to a newer engine, hopefully one that is better at calculating actual shipping charges.

We like us some Danielson. btv was involved in the artwork and pressing of the vinyl versions for Tri-Danielson Alpha and Omega. Pitchfork just debuted the video for “Idiot Boksen” that was animated by our old friend Tom Eaton. Take a look.

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.
