*We've recovered enough from the holiday madness to make our annual Bestseller List (where improvisational ambient music tops the charts and positivity reigns supreme).

*Now that we're two weeks into a new year, we've marked all our planners and calendars down. We only have a handful left, so get them while you can.

*In other get-them-while-you-can news: The ever-popular How to Talk to Your Cat Guides are coming out as a book. (Yay!) But that means they're going out of print as zines. (Boo!) We've got some of the last remaining copies, and they're going quick.

*We're working on a couple new Antiquated Future Records releases.
To fundraise for that, we're offering a 20% discount on our Bandcamp. That means digital albums, tapes, records, CDs, lyric books, everything. Use the discount code "friends" as much and as often as you like.
*We'll be in New York in a couple weeks celebrating the release of Sara Renberg's Emily Songs project. Help us spread the word!

*Our own Chask'e Lindgren just released the debut album with his band Cynosure. So good! Post-hardcore bliss.
*In other recent friend releases: lilacs released their debut album, Duchess has an excellent new EP called Satan, and Will Sprott has a new video from his excellent Vortex Numbers album (and somehow we missed this performance from a few years ago with Upside Drown backing him up).
*Portland's own Aaron Gilbreath just released his book of jazz essays.
*Shana Cleveland wrote an excellent piece about life on the road for The Stranger.
*The one-and-only Karl Blau is in need of some financial help after a fire severely damaged the community music space he runs.

*Our pal Leena Joshi made the cover of Seattle's City Arts magazine.
*Nick Jaina's excellent Get it While You Can memoir (released by our friends at Perfect Day Publishing) was nominated for an Oregon Book Award.
*The Ambiguity of David Thomas Broughton, the documentary of the one-and-only DTB (whose perfectly bizarre UnAbleTo album came out on Antiquated Future Records a few years ago), is out! It's screening at various festivals in the UK right now. Somebody bring this to the U.S., okay?
*And our buddy Chloe Eudaly, owner of Portland's zine and small press mecca Reading Frenzy, is considering running for City Council. Zinesters for change! We wish her luck.

Until next time,
Antiquated Future

*Basic Paper Airplane #9 got some nice reviews in this month's issue of Razorcake and Zine Nation.

*Reighnbeau has been doing some stunning collaborations of late. First a gorgeous collaboration with Sister Grotto (whose new album came out on AF Recs in October) and now two glitchy pop gems with Colleen Johnson (of Silver Shadows and formerly of Upside Drown) on vocals. Highly recommended.

*And this is a chaotic time to be a person in the world. There are no easy answers, but thanks to everyone supporting refugee rights, Black Lives Matter, Planned Parenthood, and (in any way) trying to make this world a kinder and more just place. You're doing good work. Keep it up.
Until the new year,
Antiquated Future

End of Summer Distro Update

As the busy fall season approaches, we're making some shelf room. In other words: We're having a sale!

Until the end of the month, we've got temporary markdowns on lots of records, tapes, and CDs, piles of zines, magazines, and chapbooks, a handful of books, some postcards and greeting cards, a number of shirts and things made of cloth, and a few other things.

In non-sale news, we've been dubbing a ton of Summer Soul mixtapes to last us into the colder months, preparing for the Basic Paper Airplane 10 year anniversary party on October 8th, and bringing in lots of fun things. Here's what's new.
