Of Montreal: NOLF 3 Postcard Record: Chinese Rock
For the third annual Night of the Living Fest, Mobile Vinyl Recorders was on hand making NOLF 3 Postcards with a new track from Of Montreal (one of the headliners). There were only 100 5x7" postcard records made and they feature the track "Chinese Rock", co-written by DeeDee Ramone and Richard Hell and recorded by both The Ramones and The Heartbreakers.
We only have a very limited number of these leftover!

Floating Action: Research Handmade "Color Test" Pressings
When the pressing plant sent us the original black test pressings for RESEARCH, they also threw in about 20 "color test" pressings, that were just the press guys playing around with weird splatter designs. Almost all of them were unique... We weren't really sure what to do with them, as they fell outside of the Soild Gold model, but are really too cool to sit in the overflowing PIAPTK warehouse of misfit records, so Seth Kaufman offered to hand-draw covers for them. So, he has 10 copies, and we have ten copies, each of which has a hand-painted recreation of the original RESEARCH album art, with a hand drawn/written track listing on the back, and a "color test" pressing. Pictured are a few of the random designs.

Cub Country: Slow Ascending/Northern Passage 7"
You might remember Cub Country as the side project of Jets To Brazil bassist/Handsome singer, Jeremy Chatelain and from their time on Jade Tree Records.
This is a great new single on black, square 7" lathe cuts in hand-linoblock-printed sleeves, made by the band.

A new series that combines the unlikely elements of record club, speed dating, body love conference, upcycling, and shopping mall sticker vending machine. Limited to 50 copies per disc, all packaged in thick picture disc sleeves.
All purchases receive full 22 track digital download.
The Homely Singles Blind Date Club is a record club that seeks to utilize the leftover router drop plastic that happens when I cut circular discs. I buy the plastic in strips, but due to the sizes of the strips, there is usually a smaller than 7" section that is leftover. So, we utilitze that space the best we can, but when cut with our circle router, it produces some strange shapes. We have been stockpiling these "Homely" records and are now allowing these pieces of plastic to fulfill their destiny, which has long been denied them... we are making these "unique" discs beatiful on the inside by putting new tracks by some of our favorite bands.
The shapes pictured are only examples and your discs MAY NOT be in the same shape pictured.
BLIND DATE CLUB:
The Blind Date aspect of this is much like a sticker vending machine at the mall. You know what is available, but you DO NOT GET TO CHOOSE YOUR DISC. You put faith in the universe (and PIAPTK) that your audio date will be with a worthy companion. Discs will be rotated through in order. So, if you buy more than one, you will not receive any duplicates, and the only way to guarantee you get any particular disc is to buy one of each.

11. Golden Boots: Pray For Surf/It Could Be Easy
The solo project of Dimitri Manos (Dr. Dog, Golden Boots, LABRYYYNTH), American Monoxide is the unfettered freakiness of Dimitri's pop genius with no boundries imposed by other band members. Recorded in a couple of weeks in his home studio, In Flight Mode is a fractured masterpiece.
