The day of reckoning is upon us. It’s been a long time coming. It was a year and two days ago that I first contacted Dustin Anderson (who engineered and mixed the album) about recording these songs.

Fast forward 367 days, and the limited edition hand-made copies of “The Streets Will Turn to Streams” are finally available for you to enjoy. You can make your way over to the shop to pick up a copy or four.

A Face and a Case
Thursday is a mellow sort of a day. It’s not the weekend yet, but it’s the fourth weekday in a row, and you’re getting kind of sick of them. We here at Zachvinson.com (I find that saying “we” instead of “me” makes me sound much more legitimate) know the feeling, and we (me) are here for you.

I decided to be much more hands-on with the manufacturing of “The Streets Will Turn to Streams.” It’s really convenient to send all your art files off to some company who will take care of everything for you (not that that’s a bad thing), but I’ve put a lot of myself into the music on this album and it only seemed right to continue that in the making of these CD cases.
