It’s been an incredible year for The Vitrolum Republic and we wanted to thank all of you for being a part of it. Most importantly, this year saw the release of our latest studio album, For the Lovespun Ramblings and Ghosts in our Shoes. We played a bunch of really great shows with some incredible bands including a fantastic intimate show for Sofar Sounds Milwaukee. In addition to being a finalist for 88Nine Radio Milwaukee for Independent Release of the Year, we were also listed in The Milwaukee Record’s list of the best 25 albums of the year and the Journal Sentinel’s best 10 albums of the year.
In addition to our album, we also made a couple of videos showcasing our recording process. “For the lovespun…” An Introduction shows us at The License Lab studio recording Storms Call Me Out, while Mångata shows us doing field recording for natural sounds and live instrumentation that ended up in the closing track to the album.
In the next couple months, we will be releasing For the Lovespun Ramblings and Ghosts in our Shoes on vinyl as a 45 RPM 180 gram double LP in special edition packaging. We have our test pressings, and they sound incredible. We’re planning a vinyl release show for that, so follow us here and on social media for details.
