Media Blitz Record Co. ——- Aoife O’Donovan ——– Limited edition 7″ vinyl with handmade silkscreened sleeves ——— AWESOME!!!!


I can’t even explain how excited I am to announce the very first release on Media Blitz Record Co.  It’s been a long time coming for Media Blitz to actually start releasing records, and shortly we’ll have the vinyl in our hands.  SO STOKED.

The first release is by our dear friend Aoife O’Donovan.  The two songs on the 7″ were recorded over here at the studios at Media Blitz East in 2006, and just sat around in the vaults for a few years waiting to be released.  An incredible cast of musicians and friends were involved with the making of this 7″, including such Media Blitz regulars as Nico Georis, Ryan Scott, Rushad Eggleston, Aoife (of course), and (obv) Robin MacMillan and me, Jacob Silver.  A few relatively new friends were also involved with this record: Brittany Haas, who played violin, Alejandro Venguer, who mixed the record, Brian Turner from Cricket Press, who did the artwork, and Aaron Schultz, who runs a great record label called Bastard Jazz.  Aaron helped facilitate the actual production of the vinyl itself.  Each step in this long process was as crucial as the next, and each person’s incredible contribution is what has made this project turn out so great.

We will be having a record release party at the Rockwood Music Hall in NYC on Tuesday, June 22 at 8pm.

As of right now, the only way to get the record is to buy one at one of Aoife’s shows (click here to see if she’ll be coming through your town anytime soon), but that will soon change.  In a few weeks we will have online ordering set up, so you’ll be able to purchase a record from anywhere in the world.  Each record purchase also includes a free download!  Even if you don’t have a record player, it’s totally worth it to buy one of these records.  The artwork is absolutely stunning.  Pretty enough to frame and put on your wall.  Please check back soon if you’d like to order a record, or email me and I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.

The concept of Media Blitz Record Co. is simple.  To release high quality music that was recorded at Media Blitz, and at least co-produced by me or Robin MacMillan.  All of our releases will be on vinyl, and will all be recorded on analog tape.  Stay tuned for upcoming releases.  We’ve got some INCREDIBLE stuff on the way.
