Happy National Doughnut Day! I plan to celebrate with a Yum Yum Donut Peanut Butter Cup, peanut butter filling with chocolate icing and peanuts. Tomorrow, The Commissioner, Ethan, and maybe Cakeator will belatedly celebrate with some delicious treats at the Doughnut Plant in NYC en route to see William Basinski play at the ISSUE Project Room in Brooklyn. Visit The Blognut for updates on all things doughnut.

Unwed Sailor starts their tour with Sybris tomorrow night in Lawrence, KS. I’ve updated the dates on the website and have also included some instore performances at a few records stores. They’ll be stopping in at Independent Records in Denver, Rasputin’s in Berkeley, and Zia Records in Phoenix. This is the first time Unwed Sailor is on the West Coast in quite a while, so be sure to see them as they support Little Wars. They’ll be making their way back to the East Coast through the course of the tour.
We’re working on a 3 week Yndi Halda tour this August. More details once we have shows confirmed. This will be their first tour in the US.
A group of us will be in Williamsport tomorrow night for Rhys Chatham’s performance with 100 guitar players. He’s unveiling a new composition during the show. I’m pretty excited to see them play.
On Monday night, Efterklang will be playing in the sanctuary at the Unitarian church here in Philadelphia. Hope to see you there, I’m really excited to see them play.
A special thanks to Andy for the new Sun Kil Moon April 2xLP. It sounds great.

I’ve made some updates to the Unwed Sailor tour plans in late May/June with Sybris, a few more dates have been filled in. They’ll be doing quite a few West Coast dates for the first time in a long while. Pop Matters has a nice review up of Little Wars. There’s a little show recap from the NYC Knitting Factory show at Loose Record. Another review is up at The Silent Ballet and one more at Beatbots.
Foxhole hit the road starting on Friday for a week with Interstates. This is a special treat and hopefully the start of more live performances.
Yndi Halda are planning to be in the US this August for a two week tour. We’re beginning the official plans now.
The colored vinyl final installments of Starflyer 59′s Ghosts of the Future 7″ box set are on their way. Most of the black vinyl final installments are on their way as well and the remaining ones will go out today or tomorrow. I try to send out all of the orders by priority based on subscription date and these things do take quite a while to assemble and mail out.
Steven R. Smith has finished up the audio master for his one-sided LP which will be called Floor of the Sky. Artwork is underway and this should be out before the end of 2008. If you haven’t listened to Smith’s music, you should check out one of his several albums under his own name, as Hala Strana, or as Ulaan Khol.
Our friends in Efterklang are on their way to the US for their first American tour. They start next Tuesday in Denver and will be traveling the country throughout May into early June. I’m looking forward to their performance at the Unitarian church sanctuary here in Philadelphia towards the end of the month. They’ll have copies of their one-sided LP on btv along with their newest full-length, Parades which is one of my favorite releases from 2007.
