RIYL: Sufjan Stevens, Bowerbirds, Great Lake Swimmers, Horse Feathers

Label: Paper Bag Records

Exciting news from Canada’s Paper Bag Records!  They’ve introduced a new imprint, Paper Bag Vintage, specializing in reissuing long out-of-print albums and projects that were never released on vinyl.  Starting off, they’re pressing an uber limited run of The Dears’ End of a Hollywood Bedtime Story, which you can preorder HERE.  Only 50 autographed copies are available, so get to it.  Also, they’re reissuing Art Blakemann’s Remember Her Name, and those are available HERE.  The final reissue, and the one I’m most excited about, is The Acorn’s 2007 debut Glory Hope Mountain, a sublime experimental folk album from beginning to end.  It’s hard to believe it’s already celebrating its 10 year anniversary!

Fans of warm acoustic chamber pop will flip for The Acorn.  As approachable as any Sufjan Stevens record, The Acorn’s Rolf-Carlos Klausener has a gift for pop song compositions with a bent for experimentation.  Fans of Balmorhea’s acoustic soundscapes and The Bowerbirds’ campfire folk framework will find tons to fall in love with here.  Check out the full album below.

I wouldn’t waste a lot of time here.  There are only 100 of the deluxe colored vinyl copies available, and the package comes with an 8-page booklet.  The original 2007 pressing of the record gets upwards of $100 on the secondary market, so if you’ve been after this one, now’s the time!  Can’t wait to see more releases from Paper Bag Vintage!
