The Sun Herald Names Wildfire Top 10 Album of 2013!

Ricky Flake at the Sun Herald named our album Wildfire a top 10 album of 2013!

9. ‘Wildfire,’ The Riverbreaks (Independent Release)
This February release comes from a Washington, DC band that got going when some members attended UNC-Chapel Hill and began working with producer/former dB Chris Stamey. The opener, “Wild Fruit,” shows the band’s up-tempo side. Other highlights include “Field of Sparrows” and “Paper Moon,” which segue into each other with slow-dripping intensity. Fans of alt-alt country and adult pop music will enjoy this one.

The Making of Wildfire Vinyl

Vinyl copies of Wildfire are available for $15. Each one is unique and hand printed by Anthony Dihle, the designer.  The run was limited to 300 copies.

Original post on Fire Studio website by Anthony Dihle:
“After having designed The Riverbreaks’ CD last summer, they came back with plans for a vinyl release. I’d been wanting to do a record cover for years. After much fist pumping, I agreed to not only design the record, but to also screenprint the entire run rather than take it to an outside printer. I also ran a poster edition in support of the release show. For each of the covers, I used a freehand method of making color bands using silkscreen ink pickup up with a relief printing brayer. The story is better told through a video clip.   I broke printing that layer into 5 sessions on different nights, still the repetition resulted in temporary numbness and tingling my left hand.

Covers: edition of 300, three colors on the front, black text on the reverse. Uncoated, pre-converted kraft paperboard with two color inner labels. Posters: edition of 80, four colors, all using the same screen stencil in a staggered step-and-repeat.

Not only are the Riverbreaks good people, they’re damn fine musicians. Wildfire on vinyl is available at Som Records, Crooked Beat, and Red Onion in DC, and at their live shows. Listen to and buy their music online at Bandcamp or on iTunes. ” – Anthony Dihle
