A new kind of record label with a curated repertoire of world class musicians. Newvelle ships six impeccably produced and beautifully packaged vinyl LPs to your door every year. This music is available only on vinyl and solely through Newvelle."Elan & J.C. Explain:
Members of Newvelle
receive one new record every two months. These records are recorded by us at East Side Sound in New York City
and released solely on the highest quality vinyl. This model allows us to focus completely on releasing premium vinyl and allows the musicians to keep all of their rights to the music. After a window of a couple years where only members can hear this music on their turntables, the artists can release their record in whatever manner and with whomever they choose.
In addition, we are using the larger canvas of vinyl to curate works from some of the most innovative and renowned visual artists working today. Bernard Plossu, the iconic French travel photographer, has agreed to publish works from his catalogue for our inaugural series. We are also publishing texts on the vinyl sleeves from some world class writers. For this first series, we are printing the poems of Pulitzer Prize winning poet Tracy K. Smith with six poems from her collection Life on Mars."
The idea, in sum total, is to curate not just a series of exclusive music, but to create an artistic bi-monthly event. Utilizing all the aspects of what makes vinyl special; the superior sound, the physical, tactile quality of the medium, the larger canvas for art and the slower ritualized nature of vinyl, to present something unique and beautiful.
