In an effort to raise some funds to cover future projects, we have decided to sell off a few, rare Nadja and Aidan Baker test-pressings.

Each LP is housed in a black paper sleeve with a hand-painted band of Japanese paper (courtesy of Pulp Papier) with a gold-lettered title card – go here for more info and ordering options.

TPs

Titles include:

Nadja – Touched
Nadja – Thaumogenesis

Aidan Baker – Gathering Blue
