Lawrence English starts cassette label A Guide To Saints

Lawrence English has added a new cassette imprint to his Room40 family of labels, called A Guide To Saints. The label launched last week with the first batch of releases from Motion Sickness Of Time Travel (Rachel Evans of Hooker Vision), Heinz Riegler, and a submarine themed cassette by Tralala Blip.

English says that the next three releases are in the pipeline for around late July/August, and describes the label as being "about releasing music I feel passionate about that doesn't fit either the schedule or aesthetic of Room40 or Someone Good... I was a huge tape trader as a teenager, the very first release I ever made when I was 16 or 17 was a compilation tape, so I feel at least from a personal standpoint, I am reconnecting with some of the things that really made me love music in the first place."

Cassettes will be released in limited runs (usually of 100), and as MP3 or FLAC downloads. Listen to an edit of Side A from Motion Sickness Of Time Travel's Traces below.
