    Q: What the heck is a "lathe-cut" record?

    A: Lathe-cut records are produced by hand in small batches, one at a time. They are not the same as a "pressed" vinyl record. The audio is in mono (not stereo) and there will be more surface noise than on a pressed record.

    ---

    Q: What the heck is a square picture disc?

    A: A picture disc is a lathe-cut record made out of clear plastic with a color print embedded inside. The disc is square, but the grooves of the record run in a circle like normal, so it can be played on a turntable.

    ---

    Q: Why the heck did you make lathe-cut singles instead of the full album? I want a Queen of the Attic double LP gatefold 180g colored vinyl option!

    A: Two reasons. The cost of producing a 2LP set (which is what an album of this length requires) is simply too high for an artist like myself. Additionally, Queen of the Attic was designed to be listened to without interruptions. A 2LP set would require not only flipping the record after just three songs, but also switching out discs.

    --

    Q: Why would I buy something that has lower audio quality than a CD or digital streaming?

    A: Think of these as playable art objects. They come with a free download of the album, so you get the pristine, clinical digital transformation of sound waves into zeroes and ones along with a big, beautiful artifact of the music inscribed in plastic. These little discs play back differently every time. Sometimes they sound like they're underwater, sometimes they sound like they came from the 1930's, sometimes they sound pristine. It's a unique listening experience.

lyrics

I was buried ten and three in the bowels of the hill lined with walnut trees. The growing came like Saturn and his baby boy - crying, while devoured, “I will always love you.”

Call down the rafters open where the eaves stop. The glow comes again what a feeling in the end. Or leave, I don’t care. I’ve been seventeen too long.

Young gardens to grow by my home.

about

Peter Adams Cincinnati, Ohio

I've been writing and recording music since 2004.

In that time I've released four albums. I typically record all the parts myself, and combine acoustic recordings with digital and analogue instruments and processing.

Over the years I've worked in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cincinnati, where I currently reside.
