Efterklang one-sided LPs arrived and orders will begin to ship out on Saturday. Finally! We’re super excited to get this one out to all of the pre-orders. These will be available in Denmark very shortly, as well, through Efterklang and their mail order. Unwed Sailor Circles LPs have also arrived, but since these are shipping together with The White Ox LPs it will be a few more weeks. We have the problem on the test pressings figured out.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

After several problems, I finally received good test pressings for Efterklang’s one-sided LP. Should be 2-3 weeks until pre-orders ship. Finally! We’ve been anxious about this release for quite a while.
This is from the Unwed Sailor press release that Fanatic Promotion is circulating to support their tour and thought it was worth posting. Hopefully it entertains you as much as it did Matt Ralph…
Scott Hatch of Burnt Toast Vinyl Reveals What He Loves About Unwed Sailor.
Johnathon Ford leads an ever-changing cast of band members through album releases and tours, and each person he chooses represents a different point in his life. Nothing is ever stagnant with Unwed Sailor, and it takes a label like Burnt Toast Vinyl to allow an artist like Ford to be fluid and adaptable with their music.

Happy Halloween!
I’ve added a few dates for the Unwed Sailor US tour on the webpage. Good news for those on the East Coast, there are many many many dates stretching from Pittsburgh up to Boston. We just got a good test pressing for The White Ox and are expecting a test pressing for Circles later this week or so. The LP versions will only be available as a double LP set, with Circles being a one-sided LP and an etching on side B of James Marsh’ spectacular artwork. Yes, spectacular. These are beautiful albums and the artwork in LP for looks great.
Saxon Shore will be playing on Thursday, 2 November, at The Knitting Factory for the CMJ Music Marathon. Get yourselves out for the rock. They’ll be landing from their Taiwan trip tomorrow and then resting up for CMJ.
Bosque Brown is playing in Dallas on 11 November with Jolie Holland. Go see them.
I now have LP covers for Isolation Years Snoose Boulevard and Denison Witmer Safe Away. A big shipment arrived yesterday. Hoping for good test pressings shortly. I’m also expecting test pressings for Yndi Halda’s Enjoy Eternal Bliss 2xLP any day now. I added details for Yndi Halda’s UK tour in December. If you’re in the UK, get yourself there. Maybe I need to make a little European trip to see them rock…
I don’t like to talk about bad news too often on this site, but the Efterklang test pressings (second round) have a large pop in one of the songs. Lacquers/plates are being re-cut/remade, so we’re hoping this is resolved shortly. Apologies to everyone who pre-ordered, but this will be out soon, I hope. This is an awesome record.
There will be a lot of btv records to give and receive this holiday season!
