Emmett Kelly has been busy the past several years, touring and recording relentlessly with Bonnie "Prince" Billy, as well as Billy recording and playing with The Cairo Gang. And a new bag of recordings has found The Cairo Gang releasing their newest LP "Tiny Rebels" alongside this compilation cassette of previously unsurfaced songs we're titling The Cairo Gang Mixtape #1! A collection of warm Byrds-esque jangle that will carry you back to the 60's with Kelly's spot-on analog production. Lonesome and desolate at times, the compressed guitar tones hit your nostalgia receptor hard, but fear not, the charm of the upbeat pop tunes will pick you back up for sure. Definitely a wild arrangement of refined pop songs.
