In ten short years, John Vanderslice's musical legacy already leaves listeners with seven critically-acclaimed and carefully crafted albums. JV's meticulous consideration to color, warmth, and depth of sound (his all-analog recording studio, Tiny Telephone, contributing additionally as an instrument) as well as his sophisticated narrative lyrical content have secured his place in the canon of great American songwriters.

As much as JV's albums are for those who love great melodies and words into which to sink their teeth, they are also for audiophiles. As such, many of JV's back catalog titles (excluding the still-in-print "Romanian Names" LP via Dead Oceans, and "Emerald City" LP via Barsuk) will be made brought back into print by Minneapolis-based Afternoon Records this fall. "Time Travel Is Lonely" (2001), "Life and Death of an American Fourtracker" (2002), "Cellar Door" (2004), and "Pixel Revolt"(2005) will all be pressed on high-quality RTI-vinyl and sold with bonus digital download coupons.
