Strange Tongues Vinyl



Product Description

Our 2013 album, Strange Tongues, with epic cover art painted by Harper Stone, depicting the members of the band who played on the recording. Specially mastered to take advantage of vinyl’s unique audio qualities, the sound is warm and full. A double-sided color insert contains lyrics and artwork for each song, and contains a download link for an mp3 version of the album (which includes extra songs that could not fit on the vinyl). Not just for audiophiles, some folks have been known to buy the vinyl album without a turntable to play it, just so they can display the cover artwork on their wall!

The $30 price tag includes the physical album, a vinyl insert with lyrics to all the songs, a download code for a digital version of the album, and all shipping costs within the U.S.
