Got an email over the weekend from Jon at Lost Sound Tapes about a lathe cut 6 month subscription series he's taking preorders on. I've talked about Charlie McAlister and Sandy City in the past. Charlie is probably going to have another single of his home recorded dixieland jug band weirdo folk and Sandy City should be headed in from the waves to harmonize on more laid back jangly west coast sounds.
I wonder if this is with singlepieceslate a new local lathe cutting operation...and being that there's only 50, that's about the size run they're into, which means by the way, if you want to hear any of this....go paypal.
Until the cassette compilation comes out.
Lost Sound Tapes 7" series, pre-orders this Monday, Nov 1st!
