  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    ***HEY HEADS UP If you order this, it won't show up for like, months, because I'm in a super long production queue. No joke, you won't get it until April or May. If you buy this you'll get the digital download immediately still, but the vinyl won't be here for a while. Just so you know. ***


    This one is for the very, very few who inhabit the venn diagram intersection of "people who love vinyl records" and "people who I need to file a restraining order against".

    Lathe-cut vinyl is unlike "normal" pressed vinyl records in that a special machine is used to transfer the sound of an album into each individual record. It takes a long time to do, is highly customized, and prohibitively expensive. Whereas a pressed vinyl release has runs of 500 or more, lathe-cut short-runs are far more sparse due to how much time it takes to make each record.

    This record doesn't necessarily need a "big" short run. 500 records is just too much to sell, and this release is meant to be a CD/Digital only release anyway. However, there may be some out there that are just manic about getting vinyl, and, if that's you, well, I'm game.

    The cost is expensive, but it's only that way to subsidize production--I'm not taking any profit on this release--and includes some (hopefully) pretty sweet incentives. The vinyl release includes:

    - Special hand-drawn artwork that won't be on any other release of the album,
    - Machine lathed vinyl on a very unusual one-sided 12' vinyl record,
    - The vinyl release will be a different master than the CD and digital releases,
    - A copy of "Deep the Ocean" on CD,
    - A digital copy of "Deep the Ocean", and
    - I will whisper your name to my cat, sealing you forever as a Friend of the Feline, and thereby protecting you from harm in all future cat-dealings.

    There are only 5 copies available. The image below is a mockup and isn't the final version of the artwork... but pretty darn close.

    Oh, and I might file a restraining order, too.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Deep the Ocean via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Babe, you made me in your image,
but did that hold you in line?
A way of keeping you from leaving
a life more loosely defined.

If I called out my confession,
would that be more than you could bear?
Babe, you made me in your image,
but it don't look like you care.

And if it comes true,
if I loved you,
Would you love me on your own?
Or would you tell me
that you don't care
when your heart's away on loan?

Babe you lost out when you calmed down,
when you decided to stay.
He's a good man on his path out,
and nothing gets in his way.

You don't see me anymore;
you just see a dim reflection of yourself
when your heart's on loan to anybody else.


from Deep the Ocean, released February 29, 2016
