Vacant Passages, Vol 1

Remember me saying something about a split EP series? You may have to dig deep here, it was quite a while ago. Well unfortunately one of the things that got pushed aside when we made our transatlantic move last Summer was the Vacant Passages series. Well, times they are a changin’ and while nobody that knows me would accuse me of being anything short of frantically busy… When it’s time, it’s time. Preorder for Volume 1 of Vacant Passages should be in the store soon.

Trying not to temp the fates

I’ve been looking at the release schedule, and grinning for the last half hour. We have some truly stunning releases coming your way in the coming months, but just as I avoid walking under ladders, I also try not unmasque layed plans too early for fear of tempting the fates who thus far have been very kind to us. That said, the next few releases include, the debut full length from Oppressed by the Line entitled “Soft Focus”, the debut full length from Matt Bartram of Air Formation called “Arundel”, and a stunning new ep from Televise entitled “Sometimes Splendid Confusion”.

Vacant Passages line-up change

Due to unfortunate and unforeseen scheduling conflicts, Epic45 will now be included on Volume 2 of Vacant Passages. Volume 1 roster now includes Mole Harness, Oppressed by the Line, My Kappa Roots and The Air Alone.

Release artwork
