TPs & Body Snatchers

07/16/2017 § Leave a comment

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
Nadja – Bliss Torn From Emptiness
Nadja – Queller
Nadja – Dagdrom
Aidan Baker – Gathering Blue
Aidan Baker – The Confessional Tapes
Aidan Baker – Letters
Aidan Baker – Candescence
Aidan Baker & Jakob Thiesen – Breathless

NB – Candescence and Breathless never actually had an actual release, so these test pressings are the only copies of these albums.

In other news, Aidan Baker’s next performance the open-air-cinema/live-soundtracking series at Freiluftkino Pompeji / Zukunft am Ostkreuz will be July 28, a duo with Belgian drummer Karen Willems, and performing to the 1956 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers:
