The records themselves sound great. Just to remind everyone: they are lathe cuts. As such, the sound is different from a modern record. It has a higher noise level and in some cases some mild distortion. The records are cut using a cutting lathe from the 1940s. They are cut in real time, one by one. Each record is a truly one of a kind object, from the cut itself, to the shaping of the record (hand shaped), to the home screen printing (my first attempt). I think they are wonderfully personal art objects as well as being filled with great music. The records come with a little slip about lathe cuts, with information on where to get advice if your stylus does not sit in the groove right (something I do not have an issue with on my table, but that was an issue on my Mother's turntable).
I'll update again as soon as I finish the back covers. At which point the labels first release will be available!!
In other news: we are still working on the Lucille Furr ep, but it is sounding good. At this point it is looking like it will be between 5 and 6 songs, released in the same manner as the Sleeping Fields single detailed above. We just need to track some violins and fix up a few parts before sending it off to get cut.
