ABOUT

Burnt Toast Vinyl was founded in late spring 1996, primarily focused on regional bands in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Since that time, the label has expanded its sights with releases from bands on three different continents. We have been an incubator label of sorts, giving starts to J. Tillman, the original Saxon Shore drummer, who is Father John Misty and was the drummer for the successful Fleet Foxes, and C. Wargo, the singer/guitarist of Scientific, who is now in Poor Moon and was a member of Fleet Foxes, Crystal Skulls, and Pedro the Lion. We released the initial pressings of Sufjan Stevens’ Seven Swans with our good friends at Sounds Familyre and have done vinyl releases for Wovenhand and mewithoutYou. Our one-sided LP series began in 2002 with Damien Jurado and has continued over these several years to include: Aspera, Early Day Miners, Efterklang, Emperor X, Half-Handed Cloud, Isolation Years, June Panic, Mount Eerie (technically a 5-sided LP), The Six Parts Seven, steven r. smith, Yume Bitsu, and more to come.CONTACT

On Philadelphia Songs, Denison Witmer paints a haunting and beautiful picture of memories, people, and places. The album features a host of guest musicians and Philadelphians. as well as members of The Six Parts Seven (Suicide Squeeze Records). Philadelphia Songs, his third full-length, was recorded in Philadelphia at home by friend Scott French and at Soundgun studios by Edan Cohen (Songs:Ohia, Jim & Jenny & the Pinetops).

The instrumentation is rich and deep, adding an ambient feel to Witmer’s songs that has not been fully explored until this album. From the nostalgic romanticism of Sets of Keys to the heartbreaking 24 turned 25 to the MiniDisc hotel piano field recording on St. Cecilia (Ode to Music), the words and sounds form a tapestry that reflects Philadelphia from Denison’s point of view.

Aside from being recorded in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Songs includes extensive photography from various city locations picked by Witmer and vividly captured on film by Philadelphia photographer Brady Sanders.
