Unwed Sailor’s fall U.S. tour starts tonight in Nashville and they’ll be doing several dates in the south before heading to Europe. Check out the current dates on the website.

Starflyer 59 Dial M LPs are on their way back from the factory. Pre-orders should be sent out in about a week.

Denison Witmer Carry the Weight LPs are in line to be pressed and we’re hoping for final LPs shortly. Pre-orders will be sent digital download codes shortly.

Vinyl Update, Go Phils!

We’re on the edge of our seats anylwaiting the outcome of the last 3 1/2 innings of World Series Game 5. I’ll be out in the Fishtown waiting for the celebration. Go Phils.

Some good news for fans of new releases. Starflyer 59 test pressings are approved. There is a significant delay at the plant for pressing, but it looks as though we’ve negotiated a run at the plant next week, meaning LPs should be shipping out to customers about 2 weeks from now if all goes according to plan. We’re excited about this.

Denison Witmer test pressings are also approved. I’m working on a final delivery date for this LP, but we’re hopeful that these will be ready for Denison to sell in November at shows and will ship just prior to the release date. We’ll be supplying download codes by e-mail if the LPs won’t be shipping by then. The first batch, available by pre-order or from Denison directly, will be on yellow and white vinyl.

A new blog for you to consider…www.hamburgercalculus.com or the RSS feed for the high tech members of our audience.

Did I say Go Phils already?!

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.
