I’m back from Chicago. I spent a lot of my time on planes and trains reading the new Harry Potter book. There were a lot of people walking around with the book and I thought it was kind of funny. I also got to see the Harry Potter movie on the IMAX screen in 3D and that was definitely pretty cool. We went to see some Roller Derby courtesy of the Windy City Rollers and it was pretty entertaining. The ladies really knocked each other around quite a bit. We also ventured over to Kuma’s Korner whose burger menu is named entirely after metal bands. I had The Slayer which was more of a platter than just a burger and it rocked hard. Scout Niblett is a fan of Hott Doug’s because we saw her and her entourage ordering when we got there today. Big love to Doug’s always. I had an ostrich sausage and a crawfish sausage. The man orchestrates some meat magic.
Anyhow, on to label updates and information:
***Yndi Halda are on their way to Asia. Go see them play or I will reveal Harry’s fate…***
Letterpressed covers for Foxhole’s We the Wintering Tree should be to the cd factory soon, so we’ll have some discs ready for pre-sale and promotion in about a month or so. LPs will be a little further out, we’ve been working on what to do with the 4th side and now have a solid idea.
I should have some more news about Starflyer 59 7″ and mewithoutYou LPs momentarily…thanks for your patience.

There are a few reviews out for some of the 4 band 2xLP split releases. Here’s one in Pop Matters for The Magic Lantern and one for Questions in Dialect The Ghost Wishes to Speak. Though the same reviewer for Questions in Dialect also had this to say in allmusic about the record.
A short mention in the new issue of XLR8R (available for download in .pdf format) “Their double-LP set of four new bands – including gloomy rockers Foxhole, Swedish instrumentalists The Magic Lantern, brilliant ambient duo Soporus, and doom electronics from Questions in Dialect – is one of the most memorable releases this year.” A nice in-depth article analyzes all four components in textura.
Also, the letterpressed cover for Foxhole We the Wintering Tree cd is at the printer. We should be on target for a release this autumn.
Starflyer 59 is in the midwest for a few shows later in the week. They’ll be selling subscriptions for the 7″ box set at the shows. Bring your pockets filled with cash to subscribe…We’re hoping to get on the press this week for the first 2 7″ so we can mail the colored vinyl out to pre-subscribers early next week. Remember, time is running out to subscribe at the $59.59ppd price and ensure you will receive colored vinyl.

I’ve scanned the cover images from the first 2 7″ in the Starflyer 59 Ghosts of the Future 7″ series. You can take a look by going here. The front covers have been silk-screened using hand-mixed red metallic and pearl white ink and the backs have been letterpressed using wood type.
Foxhole and Questions in Dialect are both going out on the road later in the week and are meeting up for a couple of shows in early July. Be sure to see them if they’re in your neck of the woods.
