Yes, I've finally gotten with the early 2000s and started my own music blog. It will, of course, contain information about things I like, lo-fi recording, great songwriting, lathe cut records, handmade musical artifacts, free mp3s, found sounds, out of print records, etc. It will include stuff from PIAPTK artists and other bands that I WISH were PIAPTK artists. No flavor of the hour blog darlings or Lil Wayne. Only things that most blogs don't bother with for the most part. But, I will poach the good stuff on occasion. www.PIAPTKblog.com
Advance Base (Owen Ashworth of CFTPA) and his brother, Gordon's project Concern cover two tunes made famous by the Carter Family. This is the second time they've paired up for a record of covers, the first being the Springsteen covers record on square, 8.375" vinyl (available here: http://piaptk.limitedpressing.com/products/10583).
Traditionals was released on Owen's own Orindal Records and is limited to 500 copies. Comes in beautiful Risograph printed covers. Includes an mp3 download coupon. PIAPTK only has 40 copies. It is available on pink or tan vinyl.
We've updated the sampler to reflect some new and upcoming releases, and you no longer need to do the Tweet Trading thing (though we'd be exremely appreciative if you told your friends if you liked it!). You can "Name Your Own Price ($0.00 is a price) at http://piaptk.limitedpressing.com/products/10631
The third in a series of Benoit Pioulard picnic plate lathe cuts. Each one, so far, has been slightly different than the next, and than the other picnic plates that PIAPTK normally releases. This one, has a stark, no-frills letterpress layout (by request of the artist), and includes a unique photographic print by Thomas Meluch, which is signed and stamped. It is also cut at 45 rpm. Limtied to 66 copies, of which PIAPTK only has 30, and the rest will only be available at BP live shows. Includes free downloads.
After a through garage and archives cleansing, I pulled the last few bits of out of print releases and test pressings. Releases from Wooden Wand, Golden Boots, Casper and the Cookies, Jad Fair, Saturday Looks Good To Me, Carcrashlander, Lee "Gull" Baggett, Impossible Shapes, etc.
