It's with great sadness that I must announce that we have begun closing down Tinnitus Records. It has been a fun trip these last three years as we have shipped hundreds of tapes around the world and met some great and talented artists all while working out of a garage, so thank you for a degree of success we did not expect. Unfortunately our ongoing equipment issues have gotten the better of us despite our spending of our limited funds on the issue, and we have increasingly little time to devote to the project. As we wind things down we will be refunding all customers who placed orders we won't be able to fill due to our equipment issues in the coming days, as soon as we compile all the needed information. If you are curious about the status of your specific order feel free to email us (tinnitusrecords [at] gmail [dot] com) but please allow us a couple days to respond.

Our remaining stock of cassettes are still available to purchase on our Big Cartel store, which we will keep running for a month or two. There are very limited quantities of these items, often just one or two tapes. In the interest of selling all our unsold inventory we're offering 33% off all orders when the code "CLOSINGSALE" is entered during check-out. This percentage of the sale will be coming from our profits, not the artist's share of the sale.

While collecting together all our remaining cassettes we found two unsold copies that were either extras or forgotten about from the sold-out run of General Translator's "CONTEMPORARY." We are selling these for the original price of $4 with $2 domestic shipping/our standard international rate. Limit 1 per customer, email if interested.

Lastly, I offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us by buying a tape and listening to our music, and to the artists that worked with us. Keep the ringing in your ears.


Hi all! Thanks for the support of our most recent releases, "Virtual Saxophone Transmissions" by g h o s t i n g and "Live Expanse 4" by Longitudinal Expanse. Unfortunately we are having more problems with our dubbing equipment, and unlike last time we're simply going to replace the broken equipment instead of trying to repair it. We shipped out over 20 orders in December before it finally gave out on us, so most (but not all) recent orders have been shipped. We hope to have this quickly resolved at the beginning of January, but there will be a bit of a delay on all orders placed until then. As always, if you have any questions about the status of your order please email us at tinnitusrecords [at] gmail [dot] com. Thank you for your patience, and we'll see you in 2015!


The nights are getting longer and the days colder; we could all use some more drone and noise music to take solace in. So it sounds like a good time to announce the first annual Tinnitus Records winter sale! Any order of 3 items or more in our web store will be 33% off from midnight tonight (12am 11/28/14) through midnight on December 15h, the day we'll be releasing our two latest cassettes - "Virtual Saxophone Transmissions" by g h o s t i n g and "Live Expanse 4: LXVI" by Longitudinal Expanse. Just use the code "WINTERSALE" on the checkout page when making your purchase.


On December 15th Tinnitus Records will be releasing our final two cassettes of 2014. First is the fourth volume in Longitudinal Expanse's 'Live Expanse' series of uninterrupted, improvised sessions. As usual, this cassette release features a new mix exclusive to this release using the original multi-track recordings. You can stream an excerpt of this new mix on the Longitudinal Expanse Soundcloud page and read more information about this release in our store. This release is limited to 15, hand-numbered copies.

Next up we are proud to present the first album from vaporwave project g h o s t i n g, "Virtual Saxophone Transmissions." This cassette release will feature four bonus tracks on side B exclusive to this release and will be limited to a 40 copy run. You can stream one of these bonus tracks, "Swervin'," on the Tinnitus Soundcloud page, as well as the original Bandcamp release. Find out more about this release in our store.

The manufacturing problems we disccused in the post below have been resolved. We'll start work on shipping out all outstanding orders this week. We have quite a few so it might take us a week or two to get them all out but we'll work as quickly as we can. Thanks for your patience! Onwards and upwards...
