We are happy to present, for the first time on 12" vinyl, Cassino's 2007 album Sounds of Salvation. Available on two variants (pressing info below) and limited to 500 units in total, the LPs are on hand and will begin shipping immediately. All purchases include an instant digital download of the album. A bundle with both variants is available with a $6 savings.
At the time of its release, Sounds of Salvation fit nicely into the niche of many mid-2000s acoustic side projects. Cassino featured Northstar bandmates Nick Torres and Tyler Odom, who started writing the songs for this self-released album following Northstar's break-up.
More than a decade later, though, this LP and 2009's stripped-down Kingprince still stand out, identified by strong songwriting and Torres' instantly recognizable vocals, which can sound so purposeful at times and so easygoing and effortless at others. Songs like "The Gin War," "American Low" and "Governor" are stand-outs that still sound fresh today. We hope this release invites you to revisit this wonderful album -- find it on Apple Music, Spotify or Bandcamp.
While live performances may remain very infrequent, Cassino is hardly a retired project. Torres has continued under the name, releasing a full-length called Yellowhammer just last month. It's the first Cassino LP since 2009 and you can find it on Apple Music and Spotify.
