New Wave Donut

by Various Artists

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Could be a cool day-glo sparkle (probably not) or it might be brown blobs on transparent yellow, like a truck stop toilet (also unlikely). Nobody knows, but each record is guaranteed to be unique, just like you. The track listing on the back isn't quite right, but hey, collector's item! Also includes a paper sleeve, an old school j-card cover, and a shiny plastic bag.

    Includes unlimited streaming of New Wave Donut via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Black test pressing. Only 5 in existence! Includes a blank jacket by default, but if you ask nicely, I'll hand scrawl the track listing on it in my own beautiful style like you see here.

    Includes unlimited streaming of New Wave Donut via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Due to licensing contraints, I only have wax for sale. If you just want digital versions (without paying the price of a record), please visit each of the artist pages below after release day. It's like a scavenger hunt! This is way too expensive so I recommend NOT buying this!

about

Anyone who knows me well will tell you that I’m a total nutter for the new wave and post-punk music of the late seventies to mid-80s. So when I was ready to organize a new tribute comp, the idea was quickly cemented in my mind.

I did what I’ve done with past tribute projects; I reached out to some of my favorite active bands in the heavy-ish music sphere to see who might have time and interest. I filled all of the slots for this one quickly.

The bands had almost total freedom of song choices. My only criteria for acceptance were that they considered their choice to be part of the original new wave era (in the broadest sense of the label), and that I’d only take one song from any given artist.

I really enjoyed watching the song selections come in for this. While only a couple of my favorites made it into the list, I knew I would not be disappointed. And my gut was right. The heavy lens applied by these bands has given me a new appreciation for all of these tracks. I hope you enjoy these re-imagined versions as much as I do.

This comp is dedicated to all of the amazing artists who created the first new wave / post-punk era, and to all of the great underground artists producing music today.
