Hey! I just got back from Nepal, made it to Everest Basecamp, had a great time, didn't die, and I now have the calves of a 23 year old minor league soccer player.
By the time this email Robo-Sends to you, I will be en route to Leggett, CA for Sugar Candy Mountain's yearly camping festival, www.Hickeyfest.com to see SCM, Graves, Blank Tapes, Veronica Bianqui, Assateague, and a ton of of other great bands. I will also be taking a lathe out there to cut some exclusive singles for some of the bands, and will be selling them, made to order, only available for the next three days.
1) Floating Action - Heartache Essentials LP!
2) Hickeyfest Singles (ONLY available for 72 hours!!!)
3) Folktale Records Gone Out of Business Blowout
4) Lathe Cut Camp anyone?
FLOATING ACTION - HEARTACHE ESSENTIALS LP!
Seth Kaufman, the one-man band of studio/live show secret weapon and hero of everybody from Indie superstars My Morning Jacket, Angel Olsen and Dr Dog to Major Label Arena Rockers like The Black Keys, Lana Del Rey and Ray Lamontagne is back at ya with a surprise new album.
Heartache Essentials picks up where Is It Exquisite left off, in that it's a fucking amazing album. Its got a silky smooth classic soul influence and is chock full of songs about Heartache. Essential.
A Co-release with our buddies at Almost Halloween Time (we are selling their American copies), and IPreferPi (who will be doing a variant that will most definitely be interesting...)
This is the Fourth LP we've released from Floating Action, and they've all sold out in less than a week, and like the rest, it's a one-time pressing.
--Signed Test Pressing - Black Vinyl Test Pressing (only 10 made), All SIGNED by Seth!
--Transition/Pressman's Choice Vinyl w/ Bonus Lathe Cut- Ltd Ed of 100, Includes a Bonus "Tears of the Hairy Man" Shaped 7" with the unreleased track "Bauxite is the Underdog" When the plant switches colors, it takes a while for each color to completely run through the extruder, so I ask Cash at Kindercore Record Pressing to play around and throw in some other colors to get some unique and unusual colors.
--Ice Blue Vinyl - Ltd Ed of 100
--Almost Halloween Time LP - Unique Handpainted covers (black vinyl). If you don't know about AHT, look them up (www.underwaternow.com).. Luigi does unique oil painted covers with hand lettered track listings for each record. They are always unbelieveable. THESE WILL TAKE A WHILE TO SHIP. It takes some time for Luigi to get them finished because they are so labor intensive.

FOLKTALE RECORDS BLOWOUT!
GET 15 Items for $19.99!
Folktale Records was a kindred spirit of our based in Los Angeles. We co-released the Anni Rossi/Whitman split with them almost a decade ago.
Christopher Payne, who ran Folktale and recorded under the name Whitman, decided to shut Folktale down, get rid of everything and move to Austin. A few months ago, he loaded up my car to the ceiling with Folktale stock, because otherwise it was going to the dump. And these are quality records that deserve loving homes. Most are in hand-silkscreened sleeves.
We are throwing in Folktale releases with most purchases, but, if you want something specific, or just want to bulk up your collection in a hurry by buying the Folktale Starter Pack, we are selling them SUPER CHEAP.
