Press a compilation on vinyl featuring exclusive tracks by Sore Eros, Amen Dunes, Wooden Wand, Xray Eyeballs, The Renderers and more!
From Brooklyn's Blackburn Recordings comes Various Deficiencies Volume 2, a new compilation that drifts and pops with the likes of Sore Eros, Amen Dunes, Wooden Wand, The Renderers, Black Eagle Child, Xray Eyeballs, Las Robertas, Sleep In Sundays, Sacred Harp, Sweet Bulbs, Mountainhood, Sultan, and Brett Marren. Repping the best of the contemporary underground sphere -- from Brooklyn and Northampton to St. Louis and Costa Rica -- the comp was recently released for free as a digital download, via the wonderful people at the Free Music Archive. But we need you, wonderful, beautiful music lover, to help make a physical version a reality.Since launching in summer 2009, Blackburn Recordings has garnered praise for debut vinyl releases from the likes of Big Troubles and Sweet Bulbs, but the label's pallet is broad, also including LPs from Sore Eros, Mountainhood, Sleep In Sundays and more.
At Blackburn, we are well aware of our fans' dynamic tastes in both musical styles and format-preference. For those content with mp3s, we've offered this collection for free, and we thank everyone who has been interested enough to take advantage of that. But we also know there are quite a few of you who prefer the physical manifestation. For you, we have this: a project chock full of goodies and rewards, whatever your budget. Various Deficiencies Volume 2 was curated for vinyl!
