Happy 2011

It’s been awhile, but btv is alive and kicking, working hard behind the scenes on some releases for 2011 and beyond. A new etching has been done for the steven r. smith one-sided LP, so we’re expecting test pressings very very soon. Emperor X is hard at work at new songs. We’re not exactly sure what the final fate of everything is, but we’re excited. Lots of ideas for the vinyl issue of Damien Jurado’s Rehearsals for Departure that will happen in 2011. Lots of ongoing work for the re-issue of Starflyer 59′s Gold on vinyl in 2011. Planning a one-sided LP with A Lily, featuring James from Yndi Halda. A maxi single from neo-goths Low&Behold.

Damien Jurado

In case you didn’t know (and I didn’t until talking to Damien on Saturday after an amazing set in Philadelphia), Damien has posted a cover of Dio’s “Holy Diver” on his myspace page. In memory of the recently passed Ronnie James Dio, of course. Rock out.

I’ve been listening to both Saint Bartlett and the Hoquiam album quite a lot lately, they’re both very good. Here’s a video for “Neck Bones” from the self-titled Hoquiam record (featuring Damien and his brother Drake), already out of print, so buy from tour if you get to see Damien. We have a couple of copies left in the on-line store, as well.

Our good friend Tim has a blank lacquer and is the process of etching the B-side for Steven R. Smith’s one-sided LP, Floor of the Sky.
