I will be participating in a sweet new 3″ CD subscription service that will go on sale on Nov. 2nd! Check it out (from the XRA Records website)!
Announcing, Laminar Excursion Monthly
10 28 2009
Laminar Excursion Monthly is a 3″ subscription service starting January 2010 and made available through the collaboration of Crossroads of America Records and Flannelgraph Records. The intimacy of its sparsity and the intentionality of its medium promise to make this an even more fulfilling investment than a jelly-of-the-month club.
Subscribers will receive two new 3″ cds at the beginning of every month in the year 2010. A unique box will be sent with the initial shipment. Even if the rest of your world falls apart, you can still count on having two new compact discs arriving to your mailbox each month for the entire year.
Each disc will hold 20 minutes of brand new, unreleased material from the artists. The joint effort is bringing together the rosters of both labels as well as such notable artists as Richard Swift, Damien Jurado, Cotton Jones, J. Tillman, Desolation Wilderness, Bexar Bexar, Danny Grody (of Tarentel and The Drift), Saxon Shore, and a host of others.
Laminar Excursion Monthly will be limited to 100 subscribers.
The yearly subscription fee is $45.00 until January 1st. If any subscriptions are still available at that point, the fee raises to $50.00.
Subscriptions will be available here at www.xrarecords.com beginning Monday, November 2nd.
