    It’s been a long strange trip for SL001, the limited-edition reissue of Todd’s With Love…From Me To You LP. The first batch I received from the manufacturing plant had a defect that rendered all but 150 or so copies unplayable. Boy, was that a fun day. Sitting on my bedroom floor opening 400 albums and checking each one individually to see if it was […]

    This morning I cleaned out my car and headed up to Canoga Park to retrieve the Todd LPs. The finest little pallet you’ve ever seen was situated in the front of the shipping department, in an amongst orders shipping to EMI/Universal, Scorpio — holy shit a pallet of Expo ’70s records!? That’s awesome! I want one! For a moment I forgot I was […]

  • I spoke to Todd for a bit today as we approach the release of our reissue of With Love…From Me To You, and we’ve got some exciting little surprises to share with you over the course of the next few weeks. Contests and media aplenty will be forthcoming. As I wrote last week, keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook for an official […]

    It’s been an exciting few years for Thérèse Williams (aka Tres) and Kitsy Christner. As ten year olds in the early ’70s, the sixth grade students wrote and recorded an album called ‘Dandelions’ and sold 300 copies to family and friends. Almost forty years later, a small cache of those very same vinyl records were found, and spread between the hands of hardcore collectors […]

    In my never-ending quest to interview everyone I know, I decided today to talk to my roommate Drew. Note: This is not Drew Stubbs the baseball player. My roommate Drew is a filmmaker and editor, and he’s also a celebrity in the city of New Orleans. I use the term celebrity quite loosely, because really he’s more of a known figure than a […]

    We all have female friends who are sexually active. Some of us have even seen them engage in intercourse, or worse, heard the gory details afterwards when it concerns a good friend of ours. Like I care what my friends’ cocks look like or feel like. Isn’t it just like a woman to think men care about that shit? No thanks. we just want […]

    Ben is my newest roommate. He moved in on October 1st, but I’ve known him much longer than that. Ben went to college with Nate and Louise and Mark and all those other Emerson nerds I barely avoided going to college with when I decided at the last minute NOT to go to Emerson. He moved to LA about a year ago because he […]

    Everything was set. I was in Chicago, I had my interviews completed, and I was heading back to Jet’s apartment to call the studio and ask if I could talk to Steve that night. When I called, though, it wasn’t Steve who answered the phone. It was “weekend John,” a studio intern. When I asked if Steve was around, John told me Steve went […]

    My introduction to Jason Molina’s musical output was late, a bit backwards, and came entirely by chance. In the Spring of my junior year of college I was having problems sleeping. That is to say, I couldn’t sleep. I attempted cutting down on caffeine, doing exercises to tire myself, writing lists of things I needed to accomplish for the rest of the week, and […]
