Title: VDSQ- Solo Acoustic Volume One
Format: LP
Label: Vin Du Select Qualitite
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Id like to introduce you to a new label that is a joint effort between Steve Lowenthal (Plastic Records, Swingset Magazine) and Rob Mason (Old Flame Records), Vin Du Select Qualitite. The first three releases planned for early fall release include the debut recording from Joshua Blatchley (A new voice in the Ragtime and American Primitive guitar-playing lineage, Blatchley offers a unique interpretation of both new and traditional compositions. Blatchley performs in the band Mountain Home with Marissa Nadler and Greg Weeks of Espers.), Mark McGuire, who plays guitar in Cleveland drone heroes Emeralds, and session-man, indie rock legend Chris Brokaw, who played in bands such as Codeine, Come, The New Year, Pullman, and the New Wave Bandits and many others. The series will be released on high quality LP with letterpressed sleeves, each with a picture of the guitar used to record the albums. Track-by-track liner notes will also be included. ⿿The idea behind VDSQ was really to create a label that was a nod to the great guitar-oriented labels like Takoma and Transatlantic but focusing on contemporary artists rather than reissues,⿝ said Lowenthal. ⿿I tried to curate a series that transcended genre and really pull together some exceptional musicians from different geographic and musical scenes. The goal is to hopefully bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary styles of music all within the context of acoustic guitar music. The process of each edition of the series is such that it really lets the personality of the player come to the forefront so each record really reflects the essence of the personality of the players. The first run is 500 of each LP" - Vin Du Select Qualitite.

Artist: MULLANE, MATTHEW
Title: Hut Variations
Format: LP
Label: Vin Du Select Qualitite
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Among the more revelatory contemporary guitarists, Mullanes new album is a further progression in terms of technique, composition and performance. With a deeply personal signature style, fans have been anxiously awaiting his return to recording after sharing stages with artists like Bill Orcutt, Steve Gunn, William Tyler, Glenn Jones, Mark McGuire and many others. Hut Variations is available in an edition of 500 copies with a heavy stock, spot-gloss jacket. The titular interest in Huts is an outgrowth of my thoughts on solo instrument playing and its relationship to the conflicted spatial and social impacts of separation, of the one with the whole. I came to this (after many years of playing guitar soli with little conceptual undergirding) in reading so-called hermit poetry alongside more recent theories of huts, capsules, bubbles and a plethora of other single occupancy spaces. Living and playing guitar in variously isolated modes, I was attracted to the conflicts of productive separation and incorporated them into my playing. The idea has followed me and has inflected much of my recorded output. This new album, Hut Variations, is the result of four years worth of composition and recording. Each piece written and recorded in a different location, a different hut. - Matthew Mullane.
