Date added: 11/01/2013 Announcing... new limited edition Tim Kinsella LP!

Announcing... Tim Kinsella sings the songs of Marvin Tate by LeRoy Bach featuring Angel Olsen. Featuring an array of Chicago heavyweights, this limited edition release is not your average solo album. As the album title suggests, this is a uniquely collaborative effort from a diverse group of individuals. The album is actually the third in a series of collaborations between the prolific poet Marvin Tate and multi-instrumentalist (& former Wilco member) LeRoy Bach. In each collaboration, all stories and melody were provided by Tate; with music and production by Bach.

But as the new songs came together, Bach recognized the material had rich possibilities for interpretation, and suggested they hand the mic over to Tim Kinsella (the eccentric voice behind Joan of Arc, Cap'n Jazz, Owls, & Make Believe). Kinsella became the album's narrator, walking the line between judgment and sympathy, and shepherding all of Tate's characters through their various struggles. The then trio enlisted their friend Angel Olsen (Jagjaguwar Records) to contribute throughout.

The album is limited to just 1000 hand-numbered copies on swamp green vinyl w/ yellow, red, magenta, & orange splatter. We have only 500 copies available via mailorder, so order quick. All purchases come with an instant MP3 download too...
