Musically and thematically, New World Voyage is a concept album, designed to work best as a whole. Feel free to stream select samples BUT - with paid download of the full album you get a 43-page digital booklet with the story of the space journey imagined through photos, drawings, and the crew's communications log. Booklet optimized for browser or mobile (just throw it into iTunes, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc).
Collectors' edition of 3, each comes framed with a 12x12" fine-art print of the NWV cover image.
Clear vinyl, custom-cut one at a time by NY artist Ted Riederer (Never Records), using a Vinyl Recorder machine, built by "these crazy but wonderful dudes in southern Germany. I get pure, beautiful, hiss-free recordings.”
Keep it in the frame with the photograph, or in the Never Records sleeve (provided).
***If you're not in DC or somewhere we can meet for a handoff (preferred), please contact me before ordering to discuss shipping options. Shipping rates listed are just placeholders. These LPs are three of a kind (four including my artist copy) and I don't want them to get damaged in transit.***
