It really helps to have friends who have great cameras and know what to do with them. Check out these great pictures of the Sister Crystals LP my friend Maura put together. Of course pictures don’t allow you to hear the spectacular sounds that bone colored vinyl has trapped inside it’s grooves. Order a copy and complete the package!
Well, it looks like we ran into a delay with manufacturing the Sister Crystals LP. No worries, it’s still coming we just need a bit more time. So, the release date for the LP is now June 18, 2013 rather than June 4th. You can wait an extra two weeks right? Sure you can. With the release just a few short weeks away, you may be wondering how you can buy a copy of this LP for yourself. Well, there are a few ways to get it
1) You can order the LP directly from Walk-In Records. If you pre-order the LP you instantly get a chance at winning a test pressing of the LP. Also, the first 40 pre-orders get a free silk-screened poster. All that and you get a copy of what’s sure to be your favorite record of 2013. Pretty sweet deal! ORDER YOUR COPY NOW!!
2) You can order the LP from one of our favorite online record stores, INSOUND. They’ve got lots of great records, so if you want your Sister Crystals LP and you need to pick up the Kurt Vile and Tame Impala LP too, you can do some one-stop shopping. ORDER FROM INSOUND NOW!!
3) You might be saying, the internet is awesome, but I really like to support my local record store. I’m not ordering your damn records online. You put those records in my local store or else. We say, settle down there big guy, no worries. The Sister Crystals LP is being distributed to retail stores through our friends at Carrot Top Distribution. If you don’t see the LP in your local store, just let them know that Carrot Top is carrying the record and if your store works with Carrot Top they should be able to get you a copy. Carrot Top is taking pre-orders from retail, so if you want it on release day ask your local shop to pre-order it now.
So, get out there and make sure you’ve got the Sister Crystals LP lined up for June 18th. Your turntable expects the best and we aim to deliver. Here’s “For So Long” to keep you company until your LP arrives…
We had a few t-shirts made for those of you who love us so much you want to advertise it to the world. The shirt features the Walk-In Records logo on a charcoal heather shirt. It comes in lots of sizes but numbers are limited so grab one while you can. BUY ONE HERE!
There’s a lot of excitement building for this LP and there should be. This is a special record and you don’t have to wait too much longer to hear it. The LP is being pressed right now and if all goes according to schedule we should have this ready in late May or June. We will start taking pre-orders for the LP in the next few weeks, so check this site or follow us on Facebook and or Twitter to get the news first. We’re got some pretty sweet plans for the pre-order, so don’t miss it.
Jordon Salveson is preparing his latest offering, an as yet untitled second EP of material recently recorded in Nashville. These are Jordon’s first recordings with his band and the results are oh so good. Here’s a taste of what’s to come…
The EP doesn’t have a release date yet but it will be this spring. Don’t forget, Jordon’s debut EP, Devil, Don’t Wake Me Up, is still fresh and available as a name your price download.
Finally, we reported to you earlier in the year about he demise of Brooklyn’s Spaces. While we still miss having them around, we still love their record, Nothing Exists but Atoms and the Void. If you love it too and really meant to pick up the LP you might want to hurry. We’ve got around 25 copies left. This record was pressed in an edition of 250, all on blood-red vinyl. It comes with a fantastic silk-screened poster, a download card and printed insert.
