Tin House‘s current issue features a supplemental “mix-tape” and fold-out poster (featuring art from the cover). The editors say, “How could we put out a Portland/Brooklyn theme issue and not include a soundtrack?” This “mix-tape” soundtrack can be listened to and downloaded here.
Tin House editors said, “We invited Brooklyn-based feminist noise-rockers Amy Klein and Catherine Tung of Hilly Eye and, from the City of Roses, the ambient electro-acoustic musician Liz Harris, of Grouper, to curate an epic mix that captures the sonic landscape of our hometowns. ‘The music coming out of Brooklyn is receiving a lot of attention right now,’ notes Klein and Tun. ‘Perhaps because it is being produced by a particularly young, particularly entrepreneurial set. Competition is stiff, which breeds technical and artistic savvy.’ To wit: Fiasco, TEEN, and ‘Magnetic Island, which melds math-rock rhythms with mind-expanding flights of guitar.'”
Writing featured in the issue includes work from Hannah Tinti, Jon Raymond, Adam Wilson, Evan Hughes, Vanessa Veselka, Ben Lerner, Ursula K. Le Guin, Karen Karbo, Salma Abdelnour, and more.
