This first vinyl appearance of the singles/rarities collection from 2002 kicks of the series of reissues of all 5 Microphones albums we’re putting out throughout 2013. These songs are islands, unrelated to any “real” albums, created between 1997 and 2002, mostly in/of Olympia, Wash., and collected on CD by K. There are some songs that are well known and some songs that are super weird moments in the studio, less well-known. A broad archipelago.

This version has been remastered by John Golden and all polished and made sturdy. It includes a new fold out explanatory poster sheet thing, a download card, heavy old-style gatefold jackets, and a foil stamped obi strip. It feels good in the hand. You are invited to purchase one or more.
