Wendy and I went to Pirates Press today to deliver the audio files for our upcoming EP ‘First Stone’ from our band Andalusia Rose. We started this recording project early last year and expected to have it out by now, but with the recording itself taking longer than expected, the recording and mixing sessions being spread out over a few months, and the artwork being caught up with one artist who had too much on their plate, we finally handed it off to another guy who has gotten us where we need to be
Being a self proclaimed vinyl junkie and record collector since the age of 6, It has been a lifelong dream for me to release a piece of vinyl. It was a fun and informative experience to go and visit Pirates Press, though they don’t have any actual presses there, it was cool to see the operation and the massive amounts of samples of packages and pressings they have done.
They had some turntables set up and a cozy listening area, I’m sure many good times are to be had here.
Here’s some vinyl ‘pucks’. Vinyl in it’s raw state.
Luckily right now they are doing about a 2 week turnaround for tests so there should be an update when we get our test pressings in hand! Can’t wait to drop the needle!
Here’s a quick slide show from our last gig with Scott Biram
