“Janet”… Janet Jackson covers album featuring 16 artists is available via Tin Angel Records.  

“The project has been 7 years in the making and is the brainchild of our good friend Jan Lankisch. After hearing Janet’s music for the first time in 1989 he instantly became a fan. ‘It blew my mind’ he says ‘you could call it a first-love experience.’ The idea came to realisation in 2008 after meeting the band Dirty Projectors. They spoke about The Jacksons and Jan mentioned how he’d always preferred Janet’s records to Michael’s, and that it would be fun to pay tribute to her.”

“The title comes from a page in the long-forgotten Delmore Brothers autobiography, Truth Is Stranger Than Publicity. In it Alton Delmore writes about J.L. ‘Joe’ Frank, one of the first big-time country music promoters and managers in Nashville, and specifically how he wore his hat ‘with a perfect abandon.’ In the Delmore book there are no photos of Joe and his hat, so you must use your imagination. Me? I envision the crown of the hat to be pushed way back on the head, so that the peak of the hat is up beyond the hairline, exposing the forehead, the facial features, like James Dean in Giant. While the hat may appear to be getting away, it never fails. A person in this fashion could be perceived to be without restraint. Life is not a care, life is not a worry.”


Tom Brosseau‘s new full-length album “Perfect Abandon” is due out on March 3rd via Crossbill Records / Tin Angel Records.  It was produced, engineered and recorded in Bristol, England by John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Peggy Sue) and Ali Chant, features a 2-piece drum kit, double bass and Stratocaster guitar.

Ed Askew is a painter and singer-songwriter who lives in New York City. Born in Stamford, Connecticut, he moved to New Haven to study painting at Yale Art School in 1963
After graduating from art school in 1966, Askew was called up for the draft. When he moved to New York for a few months in 1967 where he met Bernard Stolman of ESP Disk’ (Pearls Before Swine, Sun Ra, Albert Ayler), who offered him a contract. That year Ed’s first album was released, Ask the Unicorn (on Parlophone in the UK) and it quickly disappeared into folk-psych obscurity.
He then recorded his second album for ESP, Little Eyes, but it sat in the vaults for  almost 40 years until it saw a limited release in 2007.  Around 1987, Ed moved to New York City, where he continues to write and record songs, and now regularly performs.  In the summer of 2011, Ed Askew embarked on his first US tour at the age of 71.– Tin Angel Records

Tielli played, recorded and produced most of “Swan Sky Sea Squirrel” himself. Guest on the record include Drumheller’s Nick Fraser, Jennifer Castle, and a “sloppy background choir”.


Brother of Martin (Rheostatics), and John (Rock Plaza Central, Metal Kites), Doug Tielli is a testament to the multiverse that is the underground music scene born of The Tranzac, the Toronto Australia New Zealand Club, musical home to many of Toronto’s shadow wizards like Sandro Perri, Ryan Driver, Eric Cheneaux and Alex Lukashevsky. There you might find Doug singing and playing guitar and trombone in critically beloved acts like The Silt, Drumheller, and the Reveries. Along with other members of The Silt, Doug backed fellow Tin Angel artist Devon Sproule on her most recent record “I Love You, Go Easy”.
