Date added: 11/21/2012 Announcing... TEST PRESSING WEEK


Limited Test Pressings from Deerhoof, Dinosaur Jr., Kishi Bashi,

of Montreal, Joan of Arc, (& more) available next week!


This year we are starting a new tradition at Joyful Noise known as "TEST PRESSING WEEK"! For one week only, we will be selling off all of our extremely limited Test Pressings from this past year - which includes 46 different titles from bands like Deerhoof, of Montreal, Dinosaur Jr., Kishi Bashi, Tortoise, Japandroids, etc.

What exactly constitutes a Test Pressing? These are the actual test copies we received from our vinyl, flexi, and cassette manufacturers in order to identify any errors prior to production of the actual release. Usually about 5 to 10 test copies are created for any given release. Rather than let these Test Pressings collect dust in our office we have decided to make them available for purchase, beginning this upcoming Monday.

All Test Pressings are hand-numbered (out of only a handful of existing copies), many are signed by the bands, and most include digital download. All Test Pressings will be individually priced, starting at $10.
