One of the smarter moves the music industry’s made where vinyl is concerned is to realize that those who appreciate the medium also appreciate convenience, which is why we’ve applauded labels such as Dischord or Merge who’ve made available a full Mp3 download of a LP with purchase.
So, you’ve got to hand it to FACTORY 25 who taken the medium one step beyond with another unique pairing: DVD and vinyl combos.
Quoting their website now, “High and low concept films and music docs have a home at FACTORY 25, the new Brooklyn-based independent film + music label. Beginning in September 2009, FACTORY 25 will release films, theatrically, digitally, and on DVD, and will curate provocative limited edition DVD/Vinyl combination packages. Specializing in indie niche projects, FACTORY 25 is committed to delivering films and music in perfect analog or digital quality on DVD and vinyl in aesthetically interesting packaging.”
We’re pleased to offer two FACTORY 25 releases during our Fall Vinyl Giveaways Week and the first of the pair is ‘Damon and Naomi: 1001 Nights.’
Synopsis: 1001 Nights is a comprehensive anthology of the ethereal Damon and Naomi with videos and live performances by the duo from 2001 through 2009. This road trip through the decade includes live footage of Damon and Naomi and friends they met up with along the way including: Ghost, The Clientele and Richard Youngs. Damon and Naomi curated 1001 Nights and included a rare live version of “Blue Thunder,” a song originally performed by their legendary first band Galaxie 500.
Featuring: Damon & Naomi, Michio Kurihara, The Clientele, Ghost, Richard Youngs, Rheinallt H. Rowlands, Thom Revolver, Bhob Rainey, Masaki Batoh and Helena Espvall
The drill is the same as yesterday's contest; plead your case in the comments to this post to have and own ‘Damon and Naomi: 1001 Nights’ and we'll choose the most compelling this Saturday (11/14) and we'll ship to the winner on Monday (11/16.) You can feel free to enter any of our giveaways this week but you can only win ONE LP. Fair's fair, right?
