Vinyl Update

All pre-orders for Starflyer 59′s The Changing of the Guard LP/7″ have been shipped. They should be arriving this week. I’m off to Los Angeles for a week, so any remaining orders will ship upon my return.

Wovenhand’s The Threshingfloor test pressing LPs are for sale in the online store. Final LPs will probably be ready in about 4 weeks or so and will be on colored 180g vinyl in thick gatefold sleeves. Consider the Birds is also getting repressed and we’ll have test pressings for sale shortly.

Erik Enocksson’s Farval Falkenberg covers are in production, so should have this one ready soon. Finally!

And for those keeping tabs, the work on Starflyer’s Gold re-issue is ongoing, I’ve been conducting detailed interviews over the past few weeks.

Wovenhand Vinyl

The Threshingfloor

The Threshingfloor

A while back, I was asking Daniel at Sounds Familyre why the new Wovenhand record wasn’t coming out on vinyl. We started talking and decided to do a co-release of The Threshingfloor. It will be out in the next couple of months on 180g vinyl and a deluxe gatefold jacket. More details on the official release date and pre-order details will come soon.

You can grab an mp3 from the album at the Sounds Familyre site.

Autumn Updates

I’ve been away to Boston for the past few weeks and got to spend time with the very excellent Dr. Randall of Particularity of Jetenderpaul. Around this time in 1999, we were planning a road trip to Savannah for the video shoot of “Our Future’s Passed” at Savannah College of Art and Design. The release of this video on the Jetenderpaul Presents The Modal Lines record ushered btv into the modern era. Their lo-fi indie pop remains some of our very favorite.

Bosque Brown has been very busy. Mara and Ryan went to Europe and played a couple of shows in anticipation of the release of Baby in Europe on France’s Fargo Records. Bosque Brown will also be playing CMJ in New York City, Wednesday, 21 October at Local 269 at 10pm. We have a few live videos to post of Bosque Brown performances and will do that in the next few days.

For the autumn, we will be properly releasing Erik Enocksson’s Farväl Falkenberg on LP. We will also start work on the 15th anniversary deluxe re-issue version of Starflyer 59 Gold on vinyl. We have many plans, but few details on that one. Vinyl re-issues have been consuming much of our spare thoughts as of late.

For Philadelphians, the very excellent Wovenhand will be playing at Johnny Brenda’s this Thursday, 8 October. If you recall, btv co-released the vinyl edition of Wovenhand’s Consider the Birds. Ten Stones was released most recently on Sounds Familyre.

Speaking of Sounds Familyre, our friends Dan, Elin, Lenny, and Marian Smith have launched the Great Comfort Records label. Their first release is Come, O Spirit, an anthology of hymns and spiritual songs, and features some of our old friends including Damien Jurado, David Bazan, Denison Witmer, and Rosie Thomas.

Another old friend, Joey Sweeney, has launched the Philebrity label. We wish him the very best. The first release is a new album from Philadelphia’s Blood Feathers which includes Drew Mills, formerly of Aspera.

Some friends and I got a chance to catch our old friend David Bazan at a West Philadelphia house show in late August (thanks Sean). The performance with just a guitar and no microphone was an inspiring one. Would love to see more folks play like this, for sure. Also got to catch Akron/Family play in September here in Philadelphia. This band gives one of the best live shows around.

Oh yeah, some folks from Reels of White Softly Flow joined up with more friends for a secret performance this past August. We’ll probably post an mp3 here shortly.
