THE MYLENE SHEATH CELEBRATES THEIR 50TH RELEASE!!!!!!!!!!!
Having first come to fruition in 2007, The Mylene Sheath was founded by two particularly awesome people: Joel Proper & Lindsay Palmer.Â Their first release was one within this 2xLP available today: If These Trees Could Talk’sÂ Self-TitledÂ 12″ EP. Through a grass roots process ofÂ discovering new musicians and, ultimately, new friendships, Joel and Lindsay went on to release records that still stand as pinnacle titles within the realm of post-rock from such bands as Caspian, Beware of Safety, Gifts From Enola, Junius and Giants… to name a few. They’d also recently teamed up with Pelican to drop a 7″ prior to the band’s most recent full-length and already have a release lined up for the new Jakob record! They’re clearly picking up a strong momentum forward and not looking to stop any time soon!!
The If These Trees Could TalkÂ Self-Titled & Above The Earth, Below The SkyÂ double vinyl package is something special. For one (and we’ll highlight it again), IT’S THEIR 50th RELEASE!! Secondly, both of these records are currently out of print having been sold out for some time now!! Not only are you snagging 2 records for the price of what 1 of these might go for on secondary markets (if you’re lucky)… you’re supporting another 50 for The Mylene Sheath!
“Our motivation behind this is to make the art we love available to as many people as we can. We are not interested in creating a product to be bought and sold for as much money as it can produce. It’s our effort to actively participate in something meaningful, to give back to something that has always filled the voids in our lives and helped us maintain a positive outlook on the future.” – J&L
I can tell you, in the time I’ve had to interact with this couple… I’m quite certain it doesn’t get much better than the approach they take to being a record label. They’re exemplary in every fashion and hey, they’ve clearly got a damn fine taste in music!

â€śI have no idea where this label digs up such amazing bands but they seem to have discovered a secret reservoir of greatness that they keep tapping into. Every time I hear a release on this label I think â€śthatâ€™s it, they canâ€™t top themselves againâ€ť and yet they do, every time!â€ť â€“ The Punk Vault
â€śLindsay and Joel provide a personal touch, whether via a handwritten â€śthanksâ€ť on each and every order or the entertaining newsletters and email updates that they put together.â€ť â€“ Decibel Magazine
