BLAINE L. REININGER / Night Air / TWI 267 CD 
Night Air

We're preparing an expanded 2xCD edition of the classic second album from Tuxedomoon member Blaine L. Reininger, originally issued by Crépuscule in 1984 and now newly remastered from the original analog tapes.

Night Air was recorded in Brussels in 1983, shortly after Reininger left Tuxedomoon, in collaboration with former Sleepers guitarist Michael Belfer. Other guests include Steven Brown and Winston Tong of Tuxedomoon, and Marc Hollander of Aksak Maboul. The final mix was supervised by Gareth Jones, famed for his work with Depeche Mode, Einsturzende Neubauten and Wire. The new bonus disc preserves a previously unreleased live recording from Bologna, Italy, on 19 March 1984.

The deluxe 2xCD set is housed in a 6 panel digipack. Photography by Charles Van Hoorick, with liner notes by Reininger, Michael Belfer and Gilles Martin.

If you pre-order a copy of TWI 267 CD from this site before 30 September 2017 you have the option of purchasing an additional Night Air booklet signed and personalised by Blaine himself. Offer is limited to 100 copies only. Simply purchase using the dedicated Pay Button, and email us with the text of the dedication you require.

WHITE SEA / Tropical Odds / TWI 1233 
Tropical Odds

Tropical Odds is the second album by White Sea, the solo alias adopted by gifted American singer, songwriter and producer Morgan Kibby.

Born in Alaska, and now a resident of Los Angeles, Morgan fronted The Romanovs before joining acclaimed electronic music group M83 in 2007, co-writing, arranging and playing keyboards on the albums Saturdays = Youth and Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, as well as completing several world tours.

As White Sea, her first solo album In Cold Blood arrived in 2014, a dramatic debut praised by Billboard for its ‘canyon-sized hooks, knowingly grandiose melodies and succulent vocals’ and judged ‘pop’s newest break-up classic’ by Flavourwire. Outside of M83 Morgan has also collaborated with artists such as Greg Kurstin, Panic! at the Disco, Mark Ronson and School of Seven Bells, remixed Ellie Goulding and Britney Spears, and composed the award winning soundtrack to Eva Husson’s provocative 2016 movie Bang Gang (une histoire d'amour moderne).

New album Tropical Odds stems from an interactive project launched via White Sea’s website featuring digital singles and videos released at regular intervals throughout 2015 and 2016. Explains Morgan: ‘Generally being able to create and mix and master my solo material within days has given me the direct freedom to share songs I want people to hear. In short, if I write something that I like, I put it out!’

Now gathered together in album form, the musical moods on Tropical Odds range from the sombre reflections of Gangster No. 1 and Yesterday to the hedonistic rush of Stay Young, Get Stoned and Never a Woman, high drama on Bloodline and Arcadia, and heartbreaking balladry on Secret, One Bad Eye and Lessons.
