Jim O’Rourke Announces Vinyl-Only Series On Editions Mego

    Editions Mego has been putting out some impressive material of late, including the Emeralds and Oneohtrix Point Never albums that gained high placings on many year-end charts in 2010. Their latest project is from former Sonic Youth member Jim O’Rourke, who is set to release a series of vinyl-only albums for the label. The series will be titled “Old News” and will essentially be made up of “analogue synth and tape works (both studio and live) from the depths of Jim O’Rourke’s archive.” In typically obtuse fashion, the first release will be title Old News #5, which will surface on June 10 and will include recordings from Tokyo, Chicago, and London. Head over to the Editions Mego website for more information.
