We’re back with another RECORD OF THE WEEK blog! Starting it off this time around is an amazing new six-song ‘mini’ LP release from LONGSHOT MUSIC and Vancouver’s BISHOPS GREEN! Definitely some incredible colored vinyl configurations happening here, but the most crucial is the ‘Olive Green’ and ‘Classic Black’ AsideBside and Half-n-Half hybrid! This is the first time we’ve ever done such a combination, and the end product came out amazingly! We’ve also got a handful of copies for sale in the Pirates Press Records online store, so head over there and pick one up for yourself!
