steven r. smith one-sided LP

steven r. smith’s floor of the sky one-sided LP test pressings are finally on their way from the vinyl pressing plant. This has been one of our most delayed releases due to some difficulties with plating and pressing the etching. After the third etching attempt and misplaced lacquers, everything is on its way. I’m assuming we’ll be able to approve the test pressings and get the actual one-sided LPs out shortly, so you can now pre-order in the updated on-line store.

I’ve been told that the etching for steven r. smith’s one-sided LP has been sent off to be plated after a five month delay. Here’s hoping for test pressings in the next couple of weeks…
