Lots of really crazy releases out today.
2) Little Wings – Made It Rain LP – Ltd Ed of 300 LPs in covers that were hand-painted by Kyle Field of Little Wings, who is as renowned for his art as he is his incredible songwriting. A split release with the awesome Gnome Life Records in Big Sur, CA (www.GnomeLifeRecords.com), Made it Rain was originally released on cassette as part of their Echomancy series. PIAPTK, GnomeLife, and Kyle each have only 100 copies available.
Gnome Life said it best when they said:
Made it Rain is a direct transmission from the mind of Kyle Field (A.K.A. Little Wings)... brain waves reflected off a storm cloud and the nearby ocean... song droplets from Kyle and the windy mother. A chill out tape of eclectic covers, Little Wings classics remixed, a little story telling, and a fully new song to boot.
Recorded on cassette tape live in The Dream Yurt, high on the cliffs of Big Sur, California, above the Pacific Ocean, one late night in May 2011, in the midst of a gentle but unrelenting rain storm which eventually cut the party short by outing the power. "Made it Rain" is a wild artifact from the wild west.
3) Advance Base – Our Cat - Square, Lathe Cut 7" - Owen Ashworth (formerly known as Casiotone For The Painfully Alone) asked me to do a run of lathe cuts for his most recent tour. Has the tune “Our Cat” b/w The theme from the classic 70s radio station sitcom, WKRP in Cincinatti. We made 80 copies and split them down the middle. He sold out of his 40 in the first few shows, and we have the final 40 copies. This is lathe cut onto square, 7" acrylic and comes in a Riesographed cover.
