New additions to the band’s reissue series.
Two of the Cocteau Twins’ albums are being rereleased on vinyl, this March via 4AD.
Treasure and Head Over Heels are the latest LPs to be repressed following Blue Bell Knoll, Heaven or Las Vegas, Tiny Dynamine, Echoes In A Shallow Bay and The Pink Opaque.
As Martin Aston writes in his intro to Cocteau Twins, “Guthrie’s studio nous is evident from Head Over Heels’ towering reverb, met every inch of the way by Fraser’s unleashed aerobics.”
And on the follow-up he shares, “Treasure is denser and less buoyant than its predecessor, but it’s brilliant, all bewitching vocal overlaps, heightened emotion and baroque detail.”
New masters have been created for both albums from the original analogue tapes for these reissues.
