As you have probably noticed, we’ve been reissuing some of our more popular titles on vinyl. In December we reissued Blueprint’s Two-Headed Monster LP and in January we reissued his Respect the Architect LP. This is just the beginning of what we’ve got in store this year. This weekend, we’re having a sale on all of our vinyl releases.
One of the more common questions we get from our listeners is about dealing with the press. Whether it’s how to get the press to cover their release, or how to prepare their releases for coverage, there isn’t a lot of clear cut information.

For several years, fans of Weightless have been asking us when we planned on repressing several Blueprint titles that sold out shortly after their original release. And while we’ve hinted at it, nothing was ever set in stone until now.
For a limited time, we’re running a sale on two of Blueprint’s most popular albums, King No Crown and Vigilante Genesis (produced by Aesop Rock). Both of these LPs would normally cost $45 total, but this week you can get both on vinyl for just $30 total. There are also options to have free stickers and a signature added to your copies.

I was going through some old boxes in my basement and stumbled upon a piece of vinyl that I haven’t seen in a long time, my 2004 Chamber Music instrumental album. Chamber Music is one of the most bugged out albums I’ve ever done, but one that I think still holds up to this day.
Blueprint’s Deleted Scenes project was released in 2012 as the companion piece to his 2011 solo album Adventures in Counter-Culture, which was released on Rhymesayers Entertainment. Although he did a 40-city tour to promote the project, the CD version of the album has been pretty scarce every since that tour.

Since we posted this 2001 picture of Blueprint and Aesop Rock last week on our Vigilante Genesis preorder page, we’ve received a few inquiries for details behind the picture. We decided to get a quote from Blueprint to explain the backstory because, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Since yesterday’s announcement, there has been a lot of questions about the origin of Blueprint’s new Vigilante Genesis project (produced by Aesop Rock) that’s due out May 27th on Weightless Recordings. Some of these initial questions regarding the projects inspiration and origin were answered on this week’s episode of Blueprint and Illogic’s podcast Super Duty Tough Work.
