We have some exciting news today and something we have been wanting to make a reality for 14 years! soso‘s beautiful album, Tinfoil on the Windows will finally be released on vinyl! We have teamed up with Mism Records (Europe) and Audio Recon (USA) to help with their respective territories – please follow them. Pre-orders will open on February 24th so stay tuned!
Originally released in 2007, Tinfoil on the Windows was a highpoint in the creative output of prairie rapper, soso. Produced by his tour-mate, collaborator and Canadian indie-rock icon, Maybe Smith, the album paired his layered, sprawling instrumentation with soso’s confessional lyrics and fragile vocal melodies.
His most musically ambitious release to date, Tinfoil on the Windows is now available on limited edition vinyl for the first time through Canadian label Endemik Music in partnership with Mism Records (Switzerland) and Audio Recon (USA).

“Undeniably strange but weirdly compelling” – All Music Guide
“Ambient, pretty, and undulating, the music washes over you like a giant reverb-laden sedative cocktail. In contrast, Tinfoil On the Windows is lyrically blunt and anguished…” – Sparkplugg (US)
