What is a test pressing? from Joyful Noise on Vimeo.
Announcing our second annual Test Pressing Week! Beginning TODAY, Monday, December 2nd, we are selling off our vinyl test pressings from each of our 2013 releases.
TEST PRESSINGS AVAILABLE TODAY (MONDAY DEC. 2)
Cause & Effect (3×7″ w/ Thurston Moore, Lou Barlow, David Yow, etc.)
Child Bite “Vision Crimes / Monomania”
David Yow “Tonight You Look Like A Spider”
DMA “Pheel Phree”
Dumb Numbers “Dumb Numbers”
Available all week are extremely limited vinyl test pressings from Sebadoh, Kishi Bashi, David Yow, Dumb Numbers, WHY?, Son Lux, and others. Each test pressing is hand-numbered out of just a few copies, and many of them are SIGNED by the artists.
Test Pressings will be sold on this page each day at NOON (Eastern US Time). Our aim is to keep these test pressings reasonably priced for the super-fans that will appreciate them. To this end, we reserve the right to cancel orders if it becomes obvious that you have a scheme to sell these on eBay for $300 or something.
PLEASE NOTE: you must be a VIP Member to purchase test pressings. If you are not yet a VIP, don’t worry — it’ll only set you back $5

Sebadoh’s North American tour kicks off this Friday! We would love to have your help in spreading the word about the show you will be attending. If you would be able to post about the show on Facebook and Twitter we will happily give you a vinyl 7″ signed by the band! These records have the same two songs from the bonus 7″ shipped with the deluxe tri-color vinyl and the limited edition red vinyl. But these records will be signed by the band!
Complete the following steps and the signed 7″ will be yours:
- Become a Facebook friend of Reagan (our label mascot) and follow JoyfulNoiseRecs on Twitter (if you have a Twitter account).
- Find and post a link to the event page for the Sebadoh show you’ll be attending from your Facebook and Twitter account.
- Join the event, invite friends you think would want to go, and post a comment on the event page with a link to one or more of the following:
- Soundcloud link for Defend Yourself
- Video for “I will”
- Spotify link for Defend Yourself
…or any other Sebadoh link you would like to share with the world.
- Go here and claim your signed 7″ record! The record is free, you only have to pay the shipping cost (approx $3 for those in the US).
- FINAL STEP: Post image of show poster (links below) on Facebook and Twitter the day before and/or the day of the show.
You’re done. After we verify you obediently followed directions, we will send you the signed 7″. Thank you!!
