Album: Endless Breakfast

Summer is here and by the looks of this blog, you would be forgiven for assuming we here at Popular Classical HQ were on an extended vacation. We can assure you that this is not the case (we can't afford it), and to prove it to you we have a new release in the pipeline.

To date all of our releases have been in the accessible (and easily ignored) digital format, but we've been toying with the idea of doing a tape for some time now. And so we are happy to announce that early July will mark Popular Classical's entry into the financially volatile cassette trade.

Endless Breakfast is an album of electronic listening music, produced by Zachary Wilson over a period of roughly one year, released in a limited edition of 30 tapes. The album will be comprised of mostly new material, though some new mixes of previously released tracks will appear.

Watch this space for previews and ordering info.

Incoming: Tales of Power on VCO Recordings

VCO Recordings is a new tape label started by Steve and Tony from prog-synth giants Zombi. So far the label's releases have focused on Zombi-related material (both of the guys do amazing solo work), and we are honored that their latest release will be a repress (100 copies) of the Andy & Zeus Tales of Power cassette. ToP was originally released in a tiny edition of 30 by The Electrick Gypsy Service in 2010 and at least a handful of those cassettes turned out to be defective. Needless to say Andy and I are very happy that this material will be more widely available.

Pre-orders are available now and the tape will hit the streets on 03 April 2012. Do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the VCO catalog; next release will be from our friends in Long Distance Poison.
