SUPERHEROES DREAM DEBUT RELEASE
We’re excited to announce that in May 2015 Tin Angel Records will release the debut recording of Superheroes Dream - a 10" record, Waiting or Flying.
The record features an engaging and piquant pairing of compositions by Canadian singer/trombonist Doug Tielli and British pianist Adam Hibberd, the record weaves between Adam's intricate, light classical pieces and Doug's hypnotic, falsetto, heavy arching melodies. The two composer/performers are joined by Sarah Laughton on clarinet.
Waiting or Flying – recorded in a day, is music which bounces, stretches, soars, takes its time, and dances quickly and then languorously.

TREMBLING BELLS ANNOUNCE RECORD STORE DAY SINGLE
We are pleased to announce that Trembling Bells will be releasing a limited edition Record Store Day single on Tin Angel Records.
"Hallelujah" is a hallucinatory trip up High Street- the oldest part of Glasgow and the arterial road connecting the Barrowlands Ballroom to the Necropolis graveyard. It's a tale of mystery and imagination, where Austin Osman Spare gifts oracles to the air, alcoholics are hypnotised by the open graves of their glasses and Death and Desire are famished dogs guarding the gates to a fantastical tower. The song re-casts Glasgow as a quasi-Biblical domain where old testament ciphers tic sheep in the doorways of the cities toughest boozers and Calvary rises spontaneously from the concrete - all to the sound of a ramshackle colliery band.
Record Store Day 2015 will take place on the 18th of April, more details here www.recordstoreday.co.uk.

MARKER STARLING - ROSY MAZE
We are very excited to announce that Marker Starling will be releasing his new album ‘Rosy Maze’ with Tin Angel Records on the 30th of March in the UK and the 3rd of April in Germany. Recorded across four years and written across fifteen, the record – Cummings' first as Marker Starling having blazed trails in Canadian avant-pop under the guise of Mantler since 2000 – has slow-burned into existence, maturing with its maker, who became a dad for the first time during its making. Produced by long-time collaborator Zack G, with contributions from the best in Toronto orchestral talent, the record glowers with what Cummings calls “a happiness and hopefulness” at impending fatherhood that swept him up and “poured through me into those songs.”

Tom Brosseau - Perfect Abandon
We're very excited to announce that Tom Brosseau will be releasing his new album, 'Perfect Abandon' with Tin Angel Records on March 2nd. The album was produced, engineered and recorded in Bristol by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Peggy Sue) and Ali Chant, and explores man’s struggles to understand divinity, betrayal of a kinsman, discovery, individualism and love - themes which have become something of a trademark for Brosseau.
