Pleased to announce the release of number 15 of Acute’s series of reissues/issues with Music For Neighbors by The Trypes.

The full release page is HERE. It contains promotional verbiage, vintage photos, ordering information (also below!) and links to a few sample songs–2 from the LP, one that’s included with the digital download, and two completely unheard exclusive downloads only available here. To save you the trouble, I’ll post them here as well.

Free sample tracks for previewing and sharing. Control/right-click names to download individual songs.

Lossless files available from Boomkat next week.

The LP is lovingly packaged in a hand letterpress printed chipboard sleeve with a composite photo of the bandmembers attached to the front with homey photo corners. The LP and digital downloads also come with a deluxe booklet with photos and liner notes from Trypes John, Marc and Glenn as well as their first fan, Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan. There may also be a live show or two…something that’s only happened once when they played at Yo La Tengo’s Hanukah fundraiser this past December. Keep your eyes peeled here, and check out the Speed the Plough site for more updates and news.

Acute Records needs help…looking for a web-savvy intern. Somebody who can fix/update/help with the website. Anything from much-needed advice to some html and wordpress help.  In exchange you get free CDs, access to my large music-filled hard-drive, guest list spots to many 3rd tier parties and shows, my grandmother’s brownies, college credit, a college degree, pre-press and print-production help or training, the chance to meet the Village Voice’s “Best DJ’s DJ” (circa 2004) and other “perks”. Preferably somebody in the greater NYC metro area, but if not would be down with a telecommuting intern. If interested, please email a resume and/or some links to dan at, also list 5 of your favorite bands and tell me what your favorite soft-drink is. Please forward this to anybody you think may be interested, like that computer programming whiz who just loves the No Wave and the Italo Disco, or just somebody who’s made some websites and wants to learn more about cool musics…thanks.

cheap cigarettes sorry.
