Tunde Adebimpe (of TV on the Radio) - Dupes/Good Fortune Handmade 7"s PIAPTK - 266

When I talk about the universe sending me temptations to keep on keepin' on, I mean it. This time it was getting a call from Tunde Adebimpe from TV on the Radio asking me to make some last minute singles for a solo set he is doing at a festival in Denmark at the end of the month. And, as I usually do when someone like this asks to hire my services, I pivot and say “Sure! And I'll do them for free. IF I can release it on PIAPTK and you will hand make covers”. And so, that is what happened. Less than four days after the first phone call, I'd cut 150 double sided singles and was in Tunde's backyard in LA silkscreening the back covers while he hand-customized all the fronts. These tunes were recorded with Money Mark Ramos-Nishita as the soundtrack to an animated film.

We only have 75 copies for sale. Also, about 20 copies have the label design printed on white vinyl labels, rather than the clear labels. I ran out of clear labels, and because they are a special order, they are going to take up to a month. So, you can choose to buy that one if you want the "rarest" even though they aren't really what we intended with the artwork.
