More vinyl updates

We’ve entered historical, groundbreaking territory today because have submitted final audio finals for their forthcoming 2xLP. Barring catastrophe, we should have test pressings in a few weeks. We’ve waited years to hear this record and are more excited than words can adequately express.

A crew of us have been working on letterpressing (well, mostly Willi$ with some apprentices) and trimming covers to line up with the arrival of Denison Witmer’s The Ones Who Wait vinyl. We’ll have pre-orders shipping later today and tomorrow. We just missed Denison having copies on his upcoming tour dates, but if you attend in person and buy a vinyl, you can take home the album on cd and the vinyl will be mailed to you after the fact. Or you can just mail order from Denison or btv directly.

John Ringhofer is etching the B side illustration for the Half-Handed Cloud one-sided LP, DOVE. Few people on this planet make us smile as much as John and we’re happy to get out a new batch of his songs.


Seven Swans Reimagined

btv did the original pressings of Sufjan Stevens’ Seven Swans in conjunction with Sounds Familyre and that tips the scales for us to be our favorite Sufjan release. It’s recently been covered in its entirety and is available digitally on Bandcamp with the proceeds benefiting Komen for the Cure. Our own Unwed Sailor did a cover of “Sister” and our good friends Half-Handed Cloud and Elin Smith appear, as well as the lead-off track from Bonnie “Prince” Billy.
