Making records is probably one of the hardest things any of us has ever attempted to make. So many moving parts, multiple processes, and unexpected hiccups.

We love this sh*t.

Great things happen in Philadelphia.

You can vote in Philadelphia early, go and do that.

After a long and trying recovery (still not recovered) we are finally getting a flow back and getting records out the door in a timely manner.

Shout outs to everyone for understanding the delays.

Again, THANK YOU EVERYONE that has put orders in with us. It is still just me here at the plant and if I haven't gotten back to your emails, by tonight I will be all caught up!

Our new color material should be arriving by the end of the month due to delays from lockdown. We will have updated photos of all the colors available upon arrival.

WITH MUCH LOVE!
SOFTWAX

COVID-19
we got hit hard with this especially since we just started production in January. There are many other businesses out there in way worse situations then we are, we appreciate all the love and business that's been coming our way. We're sorry for the delays we are experiencing, we don't really know what to expect. I heard a lot of factories are participating in being a part of the solution, if anyone knows anything about that, let us know. I know nothing and I'm here all by myself trying to stay afloat.

03/11/2020

Ever since we opened in January we've been met with a great deal of love from everyone in the community. We can't thank y'all enough for actually giving a sh*t about us.

We may not be the cheapest option but we certainly do this with more love. Trying to compare us to a major pressing plant is like trying to compare the Jean Talon Market in Montreal to a Publix down in Miami. That's just dumb. Don't do that.

A) corrugated slabs that create an impenetrable environment for your records, they can all hang out together and be safe, they won't have any room to move, just the way they like it.

B) 3 inner-boxes and a masterbox. It's like going to a party and expecting something wild to happen because Janice and her potty mouth posse are posting about it on their social. Though nothing crazy ever happens. The party is polite and forgetful. There's people smoking in the garden. People hanging out upstairs. People talking in the kitchen about how they made more money touring Europe then they did touring the west coast.
------------------------------------------------------------

Options A & B are both pretty tight. We'll be trying them both out and seeing which ones y'all prefer.

Feel free to share your thoughts 🤙🏾 @ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

First in a series of posts, as our new album comes into view (soon!), Athensville would like to let you in on some of the people, businesses and other artists that have provided huge support and inspiration to us and our music, particularly in the shaping of the forthcoming LP. We are thrilled to feature artwork from the talented @nadeen.srouji.art on the album cover (not the piece pictured here - but we love this too!). Nadeen has been a tremendous friend (artist, photographer, all around special human) of Athensville since day 1, and we are excited to share her work with you. So, keep your ears - and eyes - open .... album mixing is almost complete! #athensville #athensvilleband #indie #philly WaR3house 3 The Grape Room Round Guys Brewing Company @yeet__machine @billmcgeeney @sperry1131 Cdbaby Softwax Records WXPN Brother Starling Scott McClatchy Almshouse
