The mighty Caspian’s 2nd pressing of Tertia is now up for sale. It features a full color 20pt gatefold jacket with gold foil stamping and two new colors of vinyl. 300 on gold vinyl and 200 on white vinyl. The records were split between the label, the band, and the distributor, so we all have very limited quantities on each color. Also, all preorders will ship with an 11×17 poster.
Still haven’t heard this record? You can stream the whole thing for free here.
Pick up the record with a few different options here. According to the label the white option is just about sold out!

Taken from Makezine.com. Very cool idea but would also like to hear what it sounds like without the piano sounds added to it.
Two of our absolute favorites Brown Bird and William Schaff just released some new music and artwork. Music being done by Rhode Island’s Brown Bird who are a favorite of our up here in Maine. And William Schaff who has put out some of the best album art around!
Listen to the first track Fingers to the Bone off of Brown bird’s new album “Salt For Salt” which is due out October 18th on Supply & Demand Music.
Album art is ink, watercolor and acrylic on paper. 12″ x 12″ and will probably be for sale at some point in the near future from William.
