we at Zedd/daydream get our stuff done there as well, and the black
test pressings we get back do have that brownish, kinda translucent
quality.  the white vinyl Spine singles seem thicker somehow.  i wonder
if it isn't just the kind of wax or kind of dye they use on a given
single.  white is actually more expensive to do than gold or red, which
come out kind of see-through, which leads me to believe that different
substances are being used for different colours.  haven't got the state
champs single back yet, but it's gonna be black.
