Unherd TV feature on Volar Records and video mix, Susan CMJ debut at #182, Flat Worms 7"s shipping three weeks

Also, we just got word that the Susan - Never Enough LP debuted this week on the CMJ Radio charts at #182. DJs seem to be pretty happy with this one, hopefully it gains more traction. We still have some limited blue vinyl.
