  • 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.

lyrics

Your true potential is seen by the millions.
If not by the millions, at least by me.
You've got a beauty that tempts all the Christians.
They came to praise Jesus, but you set them free.

But you don't believe me,
You don't even care.
It turns out the deeper the ocean, the longer it takes to get there.

God, if you're listening, make me a believer.
I just want to see her. I just want a kiss.
If all this I'm asking makes me sound like Peter,
call me the Betrayer, 'cause I like how it sounds.

But you don't believe me,
It's just what you do.
It turns out the deeper the ocean, the longer it takes to get through.

And I'm asking you, babe,
why do you treat me this way?
All I want is your love.
But I think I know why that just ain't enough.

But you don't believe me,
you're just hanging 'round.
It turns out the deeper the ocean, the longer it takes you to drown.
