Todd – “With Love From Me To You” LP Re-Issue Updates:

Light In The Attic still has copies of the black vinyl edition for sale, and hopefully they’ll sell through the second batch of records I sent them as quickly as they did the first batch. I’ve still got black vinyl copies as well. You can buy those via Bandcamp. 10 of the black vinyl copies have hand-written and signed notes from Todd tucked inside! As of right now, only 1 of those 10 signed inserts has been found. If you receive one of those, by all means let me know. There have been a couple more digital and physical sales through the Swan Fungus Bandcamp page as well, which is nice to see. If you haven’t already, you should pick up a copy of the record. Support Todd, support this website, and grab a unique (and limited!) “real people” / “vanity” music artifact at the same time. Don’t have a turntable? The digital release is just $4. That’s, like, 50 cents per song. You can afford it, trust me.

Now how about a mix tape?

RULES for uninitiated noobs: I give birth to a weekly Mix Tape to be deposited on your iPods or Zunes or Kingklangs or whatever the industry is currently pushing on you. Sometimes there will be themes that link all the songs together, other times I’ll just throw songs at a wall (not literally) and see what sticks. This week’s mix tape features the culmination of my exploration of  “April Birthdays” week. Tonight’s tape is a continuation of that theme, meaning all the songs are by bands who feature a member with an April birthday, or solo artists who are April birthdays. Charley Patton is debatable, but the earliest suggested birthday for him is in April of 1887. He also died in April. The goal of this endeavor, as always, is to pique your interest in these artists so you’ll support the artists and buy their albums.

      I’ve done it twice, someone keeps marking the file for deletion or reporting it to MediaFire
