West of Rome

New Vinyl: $30.98   $27.88 Buy

New West Records is proud to present Vic Chesnutt's second studio album West of Rome. Meticulously remastered and pressed on vinyl for the very first time, West of Rome is widely regarded by fans and hailed by critics as Chesnutt's best record. Originally produced by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, this vinyl pressing features an alternate tracklisting curated by Vic and Stipe in which "Latent/Blatant" no longer kicks off the album and is moved to the bonus tracks. In addition, the closing instrumental which was "hidden" in the original release is now titled "Little Fugue" and has been resequenced as the fourteenth track. West of Rome's two studio outtakes, "Nathan" and "Where's The Clock" appear in the bonus tracks. Also included are four-track demos and live versions of songs from the same time period. This pressing is West of Rome as it was meant to be.

Czarface

The first weapon drawn in a conflict is language, but the first weapon drawn for Czarface is music. Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck & Esoteric carved a niche for Czarface with venomous vocals, but the musical production is their super power. Powered by the trademark sound of 7L and Todd Spadafore (The Czar-Keys), a sound that's been developed since Czarface's first LP in 2013, First Weapon Drawn serves as the soundtrack to Czarface's mysterious origin. Fresh off of their collaboration with Marvel Comics, Czarface has not only delivered a new audio adventure complete with narration, it has given us an extra large, full color, action-packed 24 page comic book with it, housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket! In the spirit of the highly sought after Power Records series from the 70's, you can read along with the comic and hear the story come to life on vinyl.

SIDE A: 1. Czarface Theme 2. First Weapon Drawn 3. Czartusi  4. For The Title 5. Kick It Up A Notch  6. A Falling Czar 7. Funky Premonition

Present From The Past

New Vinyl: $19.98   $16.98 Buy

"More than 20 years since our first album was released, we are frequently flattered by fans expressing how much our music meant to them. We are often asked if we have a new album in the works. So far, the answer has been no. But for a while now, we’ve been thinking of issuing an album of unreleased songs for our fans around the world. With the encouragement of a few close friends, the idea grew and soon we were rummaging through our old tape archives.  So, what you have here is not an album of new songs, but a collection of old songs from the time of our previous albums. Songs that never went beyond the demo stage. We hope and hope and hope that you will enjoy them in all their low-hi-fi glory." --Nuclear Valdez

Hold / Still Remix

New Vinyl: $21.98   $19.78 Buy

Almost a year to the day from the release of Suuns' most-far reaching and creative record Hold/Still comes an album of remixes. Spanning an incredibly diverse range of artists and sounds, each one of these remixes takes the original track and twists and turns it into some very unique. The source material leant itself perfectly to a remix project - these are songs that are complex, layered, experimental. The remixes vary from the dancefloor fillers from the likes of Redshape or Marvin & Guy through to the ambience of Lee Gamble and Beatrice Dillon and the techno of VRIL, and shows Suuns as one of the most forward thinking and fertile bands around. Time to go and get lost. Comes as a double, colored, limited vinyl.

Dread In A Babylon

New LP: $26.98   $24.28 Buy

U-Roy was a true reggae pioneer, dubbed The Originator for good reason. Bursting onto the Jamaican scene in the earliest 1970s, he pioneered the vocal approach called “toasting,” which in addition to branching out Jamaican music into a new era, was also heavily influential on an American genre in its infancy: rapping. U-Roy’s style and charisma are always on display, and – as with all of his classic records – the groove rules all. Presented for Record Store Day 2017 on black vinyl with a poster of the glorious, ganja-drenched cover art, it’s the perfect chance to revisit one of the more underrated voices in Jamaican musical history.

* Official Record Store Day title * Limited to 3,000 copies on “Angel Shock” color wax * Never before released in any format * Audio restored and remastered from original film transfers * LP housed in a deluxe gatefold Stoughton tip-on jacket * Includes 20-page book with rare archive photos and liner notes Q&A with writer/director David Weisman Edie Sedgwick was the true “It Girl” of the Pop Art age; a woman who famously said she wanted "to turn the world on just for a moment". Part of Andy Warhol's Factory for a year in the mid-'60s, she is widely believed to have inspired The Velvet Underground's “Femme Fatale” as well as Bob Dylan's “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat” and “Just Like A Woman”. 1973's Ciao! Manhattan, the model and actor's final film, gave some indication of why she inspired such devotion. Written and directed by Factory affiliates John Palmer and David Weisman, the movie tells a quasi-fictionalised account – a chronicle à clef in Weisman's words – of Sedgewick's journey from New York to Santa Barbara. In the film, Sedgwick is Susan Superstar, a New Yorker who winds up living in a drained Santa Barbara swimming pool in a narcotic daze, life and art just a hair away from each other. Shot over a five year period, Sedgwick died of a barbiturate overdose at the age of 28 before filming wrapped in 1971. For a movie starring some of rock's great muses, the soundtrack fittingly features cult figures of the era: Richie Havens (“Shouldn't All The World Be Dancing”, “To Give All Your Love Away”, “I Can’t Make It Anymore”), John Phillips (“Malibu People”) and Byrds/Flying Burrito Brothers member Skip Battin, who performs Kim Fowley's “Citizen Kane”. Other artists are less well-known, including actor Kim Milford, who sings the stirring “Justice”, and Factory man Gino Piserchio, an artist and dear friend of Weisman, whose synthesizer compositions anchor the score. Never before released in any format, this long-overdue pressing includes all of the above plus selected dialogue from the film, each snippet like a beat poem in its own way. The Village Voice once called Ciao! “The Citizen Kane of the drug generation"; deeply evocative of the era, the mood of the soundtrack captures the psychedelic spirit of the film, as well as the darkness and tragedy that characterized Edie's life.

The Bevis Frond emerged fully-formed from the skull of British rock, and Pitchfork called it "A Cult Favorite".  This white vinyl reissue of the heavy third offering from Nick Saloman bursts with 60s-psych and includes epic track ""Tangerine Infringement Beak"" clocking in at nearly 20 minutes, "Into The Cryptic Mist" and "Lights Are Changing" a song that went on to be covered by Mary Lou Lord. A labour of love and fiercely independent, his prolific output has seen as many releases in as many years and an uncompromising vision under his own label Woronzow. Hailed as “a Hendrix devotee every bit as tough and contemporary as the serrated guitar chorales of Sonic Youth and Pixies” by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, his immense psych-stoner-rock has seen him become a cult figure in his own right. The Bevis Frond’s legion of loyal fans includes Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Mary Lou Lord, who have all covered his music.

Jerry Cole

Guitar mastery meets the space age bachelor pad with a healthy mix of controversy. The Astro-Sound of Magnificence, from Beyond the Year 2000...a unique capsule of a funky, psychedelic rhythm section jamming, with snarling, stabbing and swooshing cranked-up-to-infinity electric guitar voyages piloted by Wrecking Crew veteran Jerry Cole, polished and primed for takeoff with a string section playing eerie, beckoning melodies in unison. These are the sounds of epiphanies concerning the future, space and sounds on the horizon, circa 1969. The tracks for this album were recorded by Cole and other players during sessions for a separate longplayer and were deemed to be outtakes; the details as to how they became Astro Sounds From Beyond the Year 2000 are dark and distant, but the 10 tracks here were first issued sans strings in 1967 as The Animated Egg, with alternate song titles. Two years later the recordings were overdubbed with the swirling, piercing phase-shifted strings mix you hear here, creating a spectacular fusion of psych-rock, R&B, easy listening and fuzz guitar, with hints of the coming worlds of ambient and electronica. These truly are the far out sounds of tomorrow’s unchartered trip, as the original album jacket proclaims—come aboard, launch and listen. Available on gold vinyl or CD.
