“Swoon over it’s majestic beauty. Melt to the everlasting color of it’s dreamy, space-thumping goodness. We could not be more thrilled to be involved in this extremely special addition to our growing cassette library. As our most comprehensive release to date, this one is not to be missed. Pressed on super rare solid blue cassette tapes, these will be flying off the shelves, so don’t delay! ” – PURR TAPES
“Jim Smith works in a 10-by-10 foot guest bedroom in his Ewing Township ranch home, where the musician is enveloped by walls of guitars and synths. He painted the walls teal, then decided to actually name himself Teeel. Smith prefers analog synthesizers to layman-friendly computer programs for the nostalgia factor. He says he does his best work late at night in between seasons. A murky ambience casts a shadow on Teeel’s albums “Amulet” and “University Heights.” Read the entire article HERE
“The home studio born product of classic horror film worship, italo inspiration, electro love – and let’s face it, a brilliant sense of musical depth and texture – 2011’s synthified mini masterpiece, Amulet garnered the attention of electronic music fans everywhere, influential radio stations (KEXP Song of The Day), countless blogs and zines (ahem) and anyone who heard good things when they first listened to Teeel.” Discosalt Magazine

Ian McGlynn – Gold Morning Mend (TEEEL Remix)
POST BY ELECTRONIC RUMORS
“Ian McGlynn’s passionate vocal delivery makes for the prefect companion to TEEEL’s dreamy synthetic soundscapes. The reverb washed, almost Chillwavey, vocals lend themselves well to a quirky ElectroPop style, and a quirky ElectroPop style is what TEEEL delivers. By now we’ve heard enough TEEEL to look forward to his emotional synthesizer work, live sounding electronics played with feeling, and with this reMix he wraps up Ian McGlynn’s track in a cocoon of buzzing synths and cosmic melodies. TEEEL and Ian McGlynn deliver a wonderfully heartfelt peice of electronic music here. Perfect for lazy summer nights.”
POST BY ALLURE OF SOUND
“The single is taken from Ian McGlynn’s forthcoming album Now We’re Golden, which is slated for release on June 5, 2012 via Bailey Park Records. Teeel, who I first mentioned back in February of last year when he released his amazing debut album, Amulet, does not disappoint with his remix of “Gold Morning Mend”.
I’ve recently started my own record label, Synthemesc Recordings (Synth Records) and will be featuring some amazing talent with the same passion as me towards electronic music. I cannot stress how amazing these albums are and we have lots to share in the next few months. Stop by Synthemesc and take a listen. Our goal is to spread some of the newest synthpop / dreamwave / experimental indie electronic music.
