Taiga auctions Eleh, Pauline Oliveros and Lotus Eaters test pressings

Taiga records is auctioning off a series of test pressings via eBay to raise funds to pay for future releases. One test pressing of each release in the Taiga catalogue is being auctioned, which includes Eleh, Mary Halvorson's MAP, Rafael Toral, Lotus Eaters, Pauline Oliveros's Deep Listening Band and others. Where no test pressing was available, Taiga have substituted a colour vinyl edition from their archive.

Funds raised from the auctions will be used to pay forthcoming releases, which include a triple LP box set by Eleh titled Homage, and Death Blues by Jon Mueller, both due out before the end of the year. Auctions close at the end of this week. View them all here.
