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.”

NEW JOHN SOUTHWORTH ALBUM TO BE RELEASED ON TIN ANGEL
One of Canada’s most distinctive and revered music artists will be releasing his new double album Niagara this coming autumn on Tin Angel Records. Niagara presents nine rich, expansive songs on the Canadian side, with eleven mirrored counterparts on the American. The result is a multi-faceted, one-of-a-kind album - a collection of ingeniously crafted songs blending a distinct selection of popular song and folk styles. UK born, Canadian raised and Toronto-based singer-songwriter John Southworth explains “There is Canadian music and there is American music. This record is the first of its kind that I know of to be divided by a border. Each side a simultaneous interpretation of the same crisis.”
John Southworth's songs have been covered by or written for fellow Canadian artists Sarah Slean, Buck 65, Martin Tielli (Rheostatics), Veda Hille, Hawksley Workman and Jully Black, and he continues to garner praise from the likes of Canadian artists Feist, Ron Sexsmith and Gonzales.
