It's that time of year again...! Beginning today, (Monday November 17th), we will be selling off the extremely limited test pressings from our 2014 releases in our annual Test Pressing Week!
"What exactly is a Test Pressing?"
When vinyl records are manufactured, it is customary for the pressing plant to send us a small number of samples prior to manufacturing. These are known as "test pressings" which we use to detect any potential audio issues. Generally we receive 5-15 copies of each album on unlabeled black vinyl. Each year we collect these extremely limited test pressings and make them available to our loyal VIPs.
Available this year are hand-numbered, [and in some cases SIGNED] test pressings from Kishi Bashi, Son Lux, Sisyphus, Half Japanese, Deerhoof, Hew Time, Jad Fair, and others.
We will be selling the test pressings HERE, each day at NOON (Eastern Standard Time). Full weekly schedule is below:
