Hey guys, I don't read / post here much anymore, but I'm just gonna copy the email I sent out to everyone who ordered the Alex G record a little while ago, hope it explains the radio silence and delays on my end a bit.
"This is Warren of Orchid Tapes. I’m just sending a group email out to those that purchased one of the last run of Alex G records we did on pre-order, I know a few of you have emailed me independently but it’s just best and easiest right now if I just message everyone all at once to give you an update. I’m sorry that I fell a little bit out of contact over this stuff lately and didn’t really give any information regarding the status of everything, this is a little embarrassing to disclose but a lot personal matters in my life have kind of gone to shambles lately and for a good deal of last month I was functionally homeless and unable to access any of the work stuff that keeps the label running smoothly, and in dealing with certain pressing matters a lot of contact / email stuff fell behind pretty drastically. For that I’m sorry and I hope you guys can understand where I’m coming from. Running a label entirely on your own really demands that you be there 100% for it every day and over the past little while that just wasn’t possible. With all that said, these should be getting out very soon! Another issue that was encountered with this batch of records is that when I got them from Alex during the middle of his previous tour *every single jacket* of the 100 that I was owed was damaged from rough shipping between our plant and him, so I’m presently waiting on a shipment of replacement ones so I don’t have to send anyone records that look like garbage. As soon as that happens these will be going straight out. Let me know if you have any questions or if there’s anything I can do to make this delay less sucky. I think a couple people’s orders charged pack through PayPal and that’s fine, if you feel like working something out once the replacement jackets arrive and these are set to go just let me know. Sorry again about all of this, I appreciate all of your business, support, patience and understanding. Sincerely, Warren"
