New Terrors – “LEAH” on cassette tape! http://www.dilatedtime.com/new-terrors-leah-on-cassette-tape/ Sun, 10 Jul 2016 16:32:57 +0000 http://www.dilatedtime.com/?p=2014 New Terrors “LEAH” now finally available in physical form!





This is a re-issue of sorts, as it was released digitally by Mr.Sullivan (the man behind the “New Terrors” mask) himself a few years back…DT is finally bringing it to you in physical form!
Being that was released some time ago its fair to say that we have loved this release for YEARS by now! It stands the test of time and thus we cannot recommend it enough! (It has been Ethan’s “summer jammer of 2016”, as a matter of fact).
LEAH was written/performed/programmed by Burke Sullivan and made by Burke Sullivan, Wes DeBoy, Kurt Friedrich & Tim Felton

This is a Limited edition cassette. Pro-duped and features unreleased artwork by Jeff Beaver. Digital download included!

Purchase the cassette (w/ digital d/l) here – http://dilatedtimerecords.bigcartel.com/product/new-terrors-leah-cassette

We are releasing this in part with our buddies over at Flannelgraph Records. Flannelgraph has the digital version of “LEAH” available for stream/purchase right here (starting July 15th) – https://flannelgraphrecords.bandcamp.com/
They released the first New Terrors album “Mother” a few years back and they have blessed us with a limited number of them (on cassette & CD) to sell to YOU!

We  have a limited (to 20) bundle that includes 2 CASSETTES! The new “LEAH” cassette and the debut release from New Terrors “Mother” – http://dilatedtimerecords.bigcartel.com/product/new-terrors-cassette-bundle


We love New Terrors. We love Flannelgraph Records. We love both albums and simply can’t recommend them enough!

————-Also, Side note(s) about ordering;

1. if you’d like a CD version of “Mother” instead of a cassette with this bundle just mention so in the “comments/message” area on your order. We have a few & We’ll get you sorted out! 🙂
2. If you would like a CT/CD version of “Mother” on its own (without bundling it with LEAH) just click “LEAH cassette” over at the DT store and see the drop-down menu, it has options to order just the Mother CD or CT 🙂 ————————

We appreciate you more than the internet can convey.
Thank You; Thank You; Thank You!

Beautiful, right?

We’re beyond excited about the packaging on this one, its all designed and orchestrated by the genius that is Haptiq.

All tracks written, performed, & produced by Haptiq.

Recorded in Sweetspot Studios, mixed & mastered by Julian Strauch at Sweetspot.

Art by Jack Vanzet.

Design & Layout by Thorben Knodler.

The music & album, the layout & design, and the specific vibe it all collectively conveys is truly 100% the artist’s vision and were honored to be a part of it. (Not to mention the label’s #firstlockedgroove)

We really really really dig it, and hope you do too.

We know it is slightly more expensive than our other releases have been, but it is because of the quality of pressing/packaging and the higher cost that causes; we think it was worth it and hope you do too.

Thanks far beyond what this message can convey; we appreciate your support so very much more than can be said here.
Thank You Thank You Thank You; we sincerely hope that all is well and that life is rich.

-DT & Haptiq-

(Oh and ps, its also available at Luna Music! 🙂 )

DTO.3 John Davey – Living Is Trying http://www.dilatedtime.com/dto-3-john-davey-living-is-trying/ Wed, 27 Aug 2014 05:20:37 +0000 http://www.dilatedtime.com/?p=1933 Thats right, DTO.3 is here!

The third release on Dilated Time’s Organic division is from hometown-hero  John Davey.
This is John’s second full-length album and first vinyl release.
(more photos below all this text!)

Its a “collection of songs that ask questions, make statements about space and time relative to close & often romantic relationships, and is self-critiquing /observational”
John is an incredibly close friend of mine, and probably yours too ; just about all who know him seem to agree that he may be one of the best people on the face of this earth.
He writes incredibly sincere folk-pop gems that will break your heart and have you singing (and sincerely thinking) about the heartbreak all day. The melodies won’t leave your head, in the best of ways.
John has been working hard, touring, and writing relentlessly for over 7 years now. We are beyond honored to finally release some of the best songs he’s ever written on vinyl for the first time.

We at DT think this is a phenomenal record, and we hope you do too.  We pressed it to a mere 250 “minty-fresh” green & hand-numbered LPs.  Each LP comes with a digital download of the whole album & 2 vinyl-purchase digital exclusive tracks, a booklet/zine with all the lyrics and liner notes, 2 tracks delivered to your email within 24 hours, some handwritten love from DT hq, and a 3 mil sleeve to keep it all together.

You can Pre-Order here – Pre-Order “Living Is Trying”

More photos of the insert/zine will surface on instagram ASAP, follow us there too if you dont wanna miss it! http://instagram.com/dilatedtime

Heres the first single – that you get NOW (along with the forthcoming & currently-unreleased single) when you pre-order!

OH Also-

John is going on tour and playing all over (including an LP-release instore at Luna music in Indy), so keep an eye on him and us to what the what is –

Echo Island – Hivernal http://www.dilatedtime.com/echo-island-hivernal/ Tue, 03 Jun 2014 05:43:27 +0000 http://www.dilatedtime.com/?p=1895 The next release on Dilated Time’s Synthetic side is here!

Echo Island’s gorgeous debut full-length album, “Hivernal” is here and we are honored to welcome EI’s new album to the label  as DTS.5

Check out the first single  –

Echo Island is the electronic music venture of Wisconsinite Brad Hawes. For a decade, Hawes cut his teeth playing drums in several local bands in Madison before launching Echo Island in Early 2011. In the first couple years of the project, he wrote two albums and did a handful of remixes trying to find  his footing with Echo Island. More recently, Brad asked his wife Kara to contribute as a member of Echo Island and together the Haweses, wrote and recorded their most recent and most cohesive work to date “Hivernal.” On “Hivernal”, the duo sonically brings you to a wintry Wisconsin on a wind of jazzy ambience.  Much like a white Wisconsin landscape, “Hivernal” can be cold and barren, but more often than not the songs show a strange yet mystic beauty similar to untracked snow in the dead of January.


The official release date is July 8th, but you can pre-order the album now to make sure you get one!
There are only 50 CDs in total and 25 available online, so act fast!
With pre-orders you get some tracks now, the whole album physically and digitally on release day (or earlier!) AND a limited Dilated Time Records CD sampler.

Stream, see pictures of the gorgeous CD, and Pre-order now from our big cartel and/or bandcamp stores –



Also, be on the lookout for Echo Island’s release shows on July 12th and 14th in WI … more details SOON!
Watch their posts and keep in touch!


Thanks everyone ; Sincerely.
We appreciate you and are thankful for each and everyone of you reading this right now.


We’d love to hear what you think – tweet at us too!
