taidgh lynch A fabulous, reflective, haunting and restorative album. So beautifully and thoughtfully composed that I had to purchase the vinyl, which makes for an even richer experience! All the tracks are brilliant. It’s difficult to choose a favourite as each tune tells its own story. Favorite track: 10439.

Scott Even before I finished being absolutely entranced by a blissful listen to the advance sample track on TRS' Soundcloud page, I knew there was no way I could miss out on this release. Now I'm out of bed early to spend grocery money on it--very affecting music with the usual elaborate presentation, too. It's not too often I get this excited to buy a record! Favorite track: St. No.

Simon Purdon Beautiful release from the ever wonderful Time Released Sound, a label that cares as much about how it packages its releases as it does the music. I'm glad I discovered it Favorite track: A Whimper.

    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    TRS074 will be released in two vinyl versions. This listing is for the Limited Edition, handmade version.

    Each lovingly and uniquely hand made copy of this limited edition, handmade version, in an edition of only 60 copies, comes housed in a vintage, re-appropriated classical music box set. Each lidded box is collaged on the cover with unique Japanese prints of temples and gardens, torn, punched and holed, leaving parts of the original album cover showing. Most boxes have a spinning wheel on the cover as well, and each comes with a wraparound stamped obi strip. Each box is then edge stamped, and contains inside fragments of photos and texts from the originally included librettos and booklets. The 180 gram vinyl record comes in a hand sewn red fabric bag. The 60 deluxe copies come with “milky clear” vinyl. And to top it off, included in each deluxe box is a bonus, factory pressed CD of the album with two extra tracks, each in a hand labelled black envelope. The whole beauty comes in an oversized PVC bag.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Stories Of Disintegration via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
