I’ve posted some updated tour dates for Unwed Sailor for June.
Foxhole is playing tonight in Nashville at The End with Caspian and Maps. Go see them.

We’ve started something new at Burnt Toast Vinyl thanks to Greg’s (from Foxhole) magical programming abilities. When you purchase select btv vinyl releases from the online store, you will be e-mailed a unique code which allows a download of the album as 256kbps mp3s. This is the first step to inserting these unique codes in our vinyl releases available in stores and from our bands on tours. Johnathon (Unwed Sailor) and I have discussed this for a few weeks and this really lines up with the way that most of us at btv would like to buy albums. It’s nice to be able to have the full-sized vinyl artwork in a deluxe format and also be able to get the digital files for portability. Right now, this is available for Unwed Sailor : Circles/The White Ox, Yndi Halda : Enjoy Eternal Bliss, and Saxon Shore : The Exquisite Death of Saxon Shore. Those who have purchased these titles over the past few days have already been e-mailed their codes, so hopefully we’ll have all of the kinks worked out shortly. We’re planning to make other titles available as soon as we can get the encoding done. Unwed Sailor : Little Wars will likely be the first btv vinyl release that will have unique codes included with all LPs purchased through retail outlets, from bands, or through btv mail order. Big props to Greg for the coding and high fives to Johnathon for the prodding.
Unwed Sailor hit the ground running on their May dates. Go see them bring the rock.

One of the not-so-obvious amazing things about having Foxhole on Burnt Toast Vinyl is that there are some amazing designers/programmers in the band. Have you seen the Foxhole artwork? Or the Anathallo album that Greg designed? Greg has been working on some programming behind the scenes over the past few days and we’re hoping to unveil some new features to the online store shortly. We’ve also been talking about a website facelift since we haven’t changed the design in several years.
Unwed Sailor are starting there May tour tomorrow in Des Moines, Iowa (which always makes me think of that Dead Milkmen song…but that’s off topic), so go see them play. They’ve been practicing and are ready to rock. There are also some new dates for June that will be on the website soon.
Questions in Dialect is heading to the west coast for some shows. We’ll have updated dates soon and they’re also on their myspace page. If you live in the LA area, KCRW has been giving The Ghost Wishes to Speak some airplay on the show “New Ground!”
