Zelienople – Old Ways To Nowhere – 2009


The nice Chicago boys of Zelienople have finished a fantastic new record, and for some unknown and probably irrational reason, have decided not to officially release it. Good thing for us their offering a free (WAV file) download of it via their website. Grab it over here.

    From that same site:

    A Capella 7″ vinyl compilation box set:
    On Root Strata. Many greats on this collection: Zelienople, Christina Carter,
    Glenn Donaldson, Grouper, Hisato Higuchi, Islaja, Valet, Richard Youngs and Xela.
    No idea when this will be released…if ever.

    I’m assuming this is what the front page of RS mentions. What exactly does A Capella mean here? And will this be one set or four installments? And when can I buy it???

    yeah, same thing. a capella means what you would expect, only vox.

    we haven’t decided how we’re going to do it yet but most likely it will be subscription based, 5 parts, to complete a set.

    as for when, hopefully sometime late this year/early next. we’ll announce it on the mailing list/site.
