So…assorted small updates time. First, thanks everyone who came out to hang at the Bunker and SUNY Purchase this past weekend, and thanks especially to Bryan at Beyond Booking and to Keith, John, Ricardo, Koen, Brandon, Ren, Erika, Brendan, and Jay for turning in immense sets all night; No Way Back is up there in the firmament next to Voice of the Valley on the short list of best things I did in 2011.
Second, the tracklist for my mnml ssgs guest mix is now available. While you’re scoping it, pause for a moment to boil with envy for all heads in Melbourne who’re gonna be checking Virgo Four on Fri!
Third, it’s that time of year again, so thanks are due to Boomkat for featuring “Scarlet Thread, Golden Cord” on their 14 Tracks: The Best of 2011 Part 2 compilation, to Pontone for featuring Elegy on their Tones of the Year 2011: 50 Best Albums mix, and to Mimaroglu Music Sales for featuring both Elegy and Canzoni on their best of 2011 list.
Finally, speaking of it being that time of year, I’m headed back into a studio hermit zone for the next couple months to wrap up the next full length Bee Mask release, plus a few other odds and ends slated for early 2012, about which more soon.

In the combined interest of cleaning house and raising cash for forthcoming projects, I’d like to take a moment to introduce Gem Feast, an online shop for weird/rare debris associated with Bee Mask and my other projects.
This is probably not for everyone, and not the place to go if you’re looking for the retail editions of my records; plenty of distros, mailorders, and bricks/mortar shops already do a wonderful job on that tip. Instead, Gem Feast will feature a rotating assortment of single-copy stock and small-run editions, artwork, test presses, and other curiosities to be announced.
Speaking of test presses, there are a grip of them featured in the inaugural batch, along with a set of reference lacquers (pictured above) for an unpressed alternate cut of Hyperborean Trenchtown. While I get a feel for this, I’m sticking to five stock items at any given time and rotating new ones in as old ones sell, so I’d encourage you to follow @gemfeast to stay on top of new arrivals.

Textura just dropped a stellar review of Elegy for Beach Friday, and this is as good a time as any to mention that the colored vinyl (translucent pink/clear) is sold out at source (thanks everyone who gripped!).
I do, however, have six copies left as of this writing, so please contact me if you’re looking to grab one before they’re gone!
