Air France, Hot Chip, Saint Etienne and more have contributed to a new vinyl-only label, Demand Vinyl.
The work of the team behind European imprint Something in Construction, Demand Vinyl will launch with a subscription singles club. The subscription spans 10 7″ singles, each pairing a track from a more established artist with a newcomer (one of which will be picked via a competition, and will be invited to record the track at Beggars Group’s studio), with the promise of “new material, collaborations and covers”. The singles come housed in a personalised deluxe box [via Pitchfork].
Perhaps most exciting is the news that one of these singles contains material from Air France. The Gothenburg-based group split up earlier this year following several well-received EPs and singles and numerous aborted attempts to record an album. Whether their contribution to Demand Vinyl’s series is a new track or an unreleased number recorded before the group’s break-up is at this point unknown, but here’s hoping.
As well as Air France, the series promises material from Hot Chip, Memory Tapes, Saint Etienne, Niki and the Dove, Laetitia Sadier, Levek, Moons, Holy Strays, Dreamtrak, NZCA/Lines, and more. For more information, head to the Demand Vinyl website.
