*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
