Three new titles have unhatched!
Vejgaard Ambient / Andrew Perry/Dead Wood (split c58)
On the Wrong Planet "III" (c40)
Zaklanie "Día de los vivos..." (3" CD-R)
Alas, they can't ship 'til after Easter (April 2nd.) Just gotta grind it out, eh?
But do read more about 'em / purchase 'em now, if you want.
The nows and the futures
Up next (in the next... week or two), the label's final two tapes: a Letterfounder meets Ragged Lines c28 and an Il Rovescio del Giardino c50.
If you care about our catalog(ue) number scheme, you'll notice we're already starting on "ABOS4-..." with the Zaklanie 3-inch. Phase IV (like the film, eh?) of A Beard of Snails' existence will be intentionally short-lived, appropriately consisting of just four releases (ie., three more.)
Why only 124, 131, 137, and 144? Those particulars had been skipped or overlooked somewhere between 2007 and 2008 - back when A Beard of Snails was affiliated with The BSBTA Label Group and its shared catalogue number system (veterans may recall there were two other labels under the umbrella.) About time we finally put the unused numbers to use... while, concurrently, working to put the last four Phase III titles out.
Then what? I'll let you know when I know!
Yep, the cat's officially out of the bag: the tape label known (only) as Metaphysical Circuits is my doing as well. Check it out if you aren't already familiar; maybe even buy some new tapes from Asio Otus, or Sunny Dunes, or Noseph Janner / Levvels, or... ?
Finally (finding) time for the first (two) releases of 2013...
The Cats' Orchestra "Widow Fish Rumours" (c25)
Brandon Hurtado "A Path Through the Woods" (c28)
Limited copies; get one or both while you can!
