It’s been quite a while since the last update to the site. Things have been quite busy and exciting. I was in Puerto Rico for four days for work, working long hours to finish everything before getting to take some vacation. When I returned from Puerto Rico, Reels of White Softly Flow played at the Fire. My parents were in town for my friend Nathan’s wedding. I was the best man, so there was a lot to do, tuxedo fittings, rehearsals, barbeques. And, in the meantime, I was orchestrating the arrival of several new btv releases. Thanks to both Willis and Jamie, a new batch of btv releases have safely arrived, including Denison Witmer : Philadelphia Songs LP (white vinyl, gatefold jackets), Circle of Birds : s/t cdep and 10″, Denison Witmer : River Bends cdep (new digipak version), Reels’ Live LP (no cds, sorry), and the second repress of the Damien Jurado : Four Songs one-sided LP.
Nathan’s wedding was very exciting as he and Norma were arried on Saturday, 29 June. Immediately the next morning, Reels of White Softly Flow left for some midwest shows. We stopped in Indiana to stay at my parents’ house and then went to Chicago where we played an impromptu show with our drummer, Emil, from Norway. Later that night, we played in Rockford, IL with our friends Mercury Radio Theater and Fine China. On Thursday, we played in Illinois with our friends Unwed Sailor, Danielsonship, and the Colemans. Thanks to everyone who came to the show. During the course of the week, I got to meet with Ester Drang, Denison, Unwed Sailor, and a whole bunch of other people.
In any case, btv is now back to normal after a bit of a hiatus. On-line orders will be filled today and tomorrow. All new releases will be shipping quickly, so don’t hesitate in purchasing the new releases.
