John Vanderslice to reissue albums on vinyl

Published by at 5:34 pm under Alternative,Folk,MP3's


One of my favorite musicians, John Vanderslice, is going to reissue his entire back catalog on the Minneapolis based label Afternoon Records! They’ll be pressing Time Travel Is Lonely (2001), Life and Death of an American Fourtracker (2002), Cellar Door (2004), and Pixel Revolt (2005), all on high-quality RTI-vinyl. His most recent albums, Romanian Names and Emerald City, are still in-print, hence not needing to be reissued.

Pixel Revolt is one of my favorite albums to listen to on vinyl–I highly recommend getting it. The original pressing of 500 copies sold out six days after the release, so it’s really awesome that Afternoon Records took an initiative to get more copies of these records out there. If you aren’t familiar with John Vanderslice, I’d say check out Pixel Revolt first. Some people give me a hard time when I say I like Pixel Revolt more than Cellar Door (which is also great), but I dunno, that album just really connects with me (and Pitchfork agrees with me and gave it a higher rating than Cellar Door too…and Pitchfork knows all, right?)

But hey, if you have the cash,  just buy all four vinyls for $70. They’re really good. You can pre-order here (release date is December 8th; they all come with mp3 codes).

Pixel Revolt (2005):

(Mp3) John Vanderslice – Exodus Damage

(Mp3) John Vanderslice – Trance Manual

Life and Death of An American Fourtracker (2002):

(Mp3) John Vanderslice – Underneath The Leaves

    It’s imperative that more people make this exact point.

    Love this, Casie! I am guilty of this, mainly because I don’t give up the camera to anyone else But a perfect reason why I should book a session with another great photographer (too bad you’re not closer!)

    Not sure what you mean, there Sam — we don’t say anything like that. Could you quote the bits that are concerning you?The thrust of the review is basically the opposite of what you’ve suggested; that even when Soderbergh shoots a home movie-esque improvised feature in his spare time, it still ends up being fantastic.
