Tortoise albums reissued on LP for Thrill Jockey 20th anniversary

To mark Thrill Jockey's 20th anniversary (another birthday to add to ours and Touch's 30th birthdays in 2012), there's a batch of reissues on the way from the label, including most of Tortoise's back catalogue on LP. Getting reissued on vinyl are Tortoise's self titled LP, as well as Standards, It's All Around You, Millions Now Living Will Never Die, TNT, and Beacons Of Ancestorship.

Also getting reissued on LP for Thrill Jockey's anniversary are Trans Am albums Surrender To The Night, The Surveillance, Red Line and their self-titled LP, plus The Sea And Cake's Nassau, The Biz, The Fawn, Oui and One Bedroom's self titled LP. Vinyl reissues of two Sam Prekop albums, releases by White Hills, Freakwater, V3, Directions in Music, Daniel Higgs, The Fiery Furnaces and Fennesz/Daniel/Buck's Knoxville are also planned.

There are no dates for the LP releases yet, other than that they'll be spread throughout the year, and will be repressed in limited numbers on vinyl, and all come with digital downloads. More info on other Thrill Jockey 20th anniversary goings on here.
