Spineriders (the old band of Jason Molina) have been getting more love. Misra is releasing Spineriders “Hello Future Tinglies” (MSR070) on cassette on 8/27. All proceeds to Musicians Emergency Medical Association. Head to the Misra Store and support a great cause! Once this artifact becomes a rarity (pressing of 300), sell it and donate again!

Phosphorescent frontman Matthew Houck is a warmhearted, candid fellow.  Houck recently did interviews for Pitchfork and Line of Best Fit in anticipation of his forthcoming Muchacho full-length – out March 19 via the fantastic Dead Oceans imprint. These interviews are two in a long line of recent press, including a spot on NPR’s First Listen and leadoff single “Song for Zula” receiving Best New Track via Pitchfork.

Shortly after the new album’s release, Misra will reissue the label’s Phos title – Aw Come Aw Wry – on Record Store Day 2013 (April 20). It’s a fabulous collection of songs circa 2005. This will be a unique pressing with a slightly updated jacket and a download which includes the full album + rare live recordings of ACAW songs. The pressing was done by the fine folks at Furnace Manufacturing and sounds tremendous. Their work is done with great time and care.
