New music!

Cassino is one of the most consistently good alternative/folk bands out there. So happy when I found out they were releasing more music! Well worth the $6. Support this band so they keep on making music!

Perfect is an understatement

Nick and Ed have taken their time making sure they got this EP right and it paid off. Nick has always been a master lyricist and this album will prove that to you. Bottlenecker shows the most strength out of all the releases so far.

cassino - bottlenecker another amazing piece of true artwork

nick torres is a true artist with a brilliant band backing him. I've always stood strong behind everything nick has done. everything he's released has always been like a gift, and has continued to act as a soundtrack to my life I'm in love with this new EP and am looking very forward to pt.2 of this project following the full physical release. maybe we'll be lucky enough to see some vinyl for this record in our future. along with the long awaited vinyl lp pressing of "sounds of salvation" which to this day still holds a very special place in my heart. thank you cassino for releasing this raw and beautifully done EP. i appreciate you more than you'll ever know. and believe me this EP was well worth the wait!

About Cassino

After the breakup of emo-influenced indie rockers Northstar in the summer of 2005, principle songwriters Tyler Odom and Nick Torres headed back to their home state of Alabama and starting writing songs for their new project, Cassino. Setting aside the harder edges of Northstar's sound, Cassino's music takes a more pastoral approach, with Odom citing the adventurous folk rock of Neil Young, Will Oldham, and Joanna Newsom as key influences, while allowing the personal and spiritual messages of their songs to take greater prominence. After a year and a half of working on material and occasional low-key gigs, Cassino released their first album, Sound of Salvation, in the spring 2007; Odom and Torres opted to release the album themselves independent of the influences of a major record label. ~ Mark Deming
