New Weird Australia is proud to announce the launch of its ‘New Editions’ label – a new imprint from New Weird Australia, focusing on single artist releases. Having released a series of nine free compilations since July 2009, New Weird Australia has garnered significant interest both at home and overseas, and thus a move into an ongoing label format was both obvious and necessary.
New Editions releases will be available in two formats: a high-quality digital release (priced as a ‘pay what you like’ model, with a minimum of $0) and in a run of 50 limited-edition CDs available from artist shows & NWA events.
The first release for the New Editions label features Melbourne’s CAUGHT SHIP (pictured above) with their 8-track EP ‘Start Dencing Dad, Start Dencing’. Future releases are currently being scheduled, at a release rate of around one every two or three months.
