Dream pop pioneers get two more vinyl reissues this summer.
Following the reissue of Cocteau Twins seminal Heaven Or Las Vegas and Blue Bell Knoll last year, 4AD have announced two further reissues from the band’s influential back catalogue.
Slated for a refresh this time round are Tiny Dynamine and Echoes In A Shallow Bay, a brace of companion EPs originally released two weeks apart in November 1985, as a precursor to their fourth album, Victorialand. Presented together with “reformatted artwork”, the EPs will be joined by 1986 compilation The Pink Opaque featuring alternative mixes and the first appearance of band member Simon Raymonde on ‘Millimillenary’.
The new reissues are pressed on 180gram vinyl using masters from the original analogue tapes and will be available from July 17th.
