OPAL ONYX AND ZELIENOPLE SPLIT RELEASE FOR CASSETTE STORE DAY
Tin Angel is proud to announce that we will be participating in this year's International Cassette Store Day! We will be issuing a special split release between the dream American pairing of Zelienople and Opal Onyx for the occasion. Fittingly entitled "ZelienOpal", it captures both bands at their instrumental and emotive peaks, with each side a thrilling journey through two very different soundscapes. The lush artwork for this release was created by Giselle Zatonyl. Limited to 80 tapes, one pressing only!
Listen to "Bullets", the opening track from Opal Onyx's side, via the SoundCloud player below.
ED ASKEW REISSUE AND EUROPEAN TOUR
Tin Angel Records will be reissuing Ed Askew’s Ask the Unicorn this October. Recorded and released in the late 1960s, the album went largely unappreciated in its era but became an item of critical and fan devotion and is ready to be revived for a waiting audience. Ask the Unicorn will be released on white vinyl 23rd October 2015.
The cover for the UK release, reproduced above, is the positive of the US edition. It is a photo of the protests in Stamford following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was remastered from the original pressing by Jessica Thompson (Awesome Tapes from Africa, Tompkins Square) at the Magic Shop in NYC so that it sounds better than ever -- clearer, deeper, and louder. The insert features an original poster made Askew for one of this shows in New Haven, CT; and liner notes by Clifford Allen (Tiny Mix Tapes), an ESP-Disk scholar and friend of the band, who interviewed Askew over the course of several months.
