We are incredibly excited to present a ONE TIME ONLY and extremely limited pressing of Sound American: The Cassette Issue!  Sound American (for those that might not know) is an absolutely astounding online magazine run by Nate Wooley. To help celebrate the release of Sound American’s first physical book release we’ve collaborated with Wooley to bring you the companion “Cassette Issue.” For a limited time you can get BOTH the book and cassette from us HERE, or from Sound American HERE, and also from Catalytic Sound, HERE.

Sound American: The Cassette Issue is a beautifully packaged cassette version of two of Sound American’s favorite interview/fly-on-the-wall sessions: Nate Wooley‘s long interview with Canary Records founder Ian Nagoski from the What Is American Music Issue and Philip White, C. Spencer Yeh, and Chris Pitsiokos shredding a page of Treatise from the Cornelius Cardew Issue.

Sound American is an online magazine founded in 2012 by Editor Nate Wooley and Lisa Kahlden, President of DRAM/New World Records. Its aim was to promote a discussion of experimental and esoteric music through the words and actions of the people that make it–falling in the center of the populist and the academic. To date, Sound American has released sixteen issues covering topics from Christian Wolff, Anthony Braxton, and John Cage to Deep Listening, Ritual in Music, and Cornelius Cardew’s Treatise. SA is also involved in releasing print runs of its issues as well as special projects like the Atlas of A History of Female Music Electronic Music and first recordings of composer Alex Mincek (of Zs) and Mary Halvorson/Ron Miles/Greg Saunier Trio.  Visit Sound American on the web here!
