The group is shooting to record 10 tracks, including reworked versions of tracks from the cassette, plus two features for NYC free jazz legends Roy Campbell Jr, Steve Swell, and Daniel Carter!

The legendary drummer William Hooker, and guitarist Edward Ricart (of Matta Gawa, Hyrrokkin) will head out on a brief journey through the Midwest... The duo will be improvising scores to the films of Matthew Kohn, and taking no prisoners!

One year after our inaugural batch of releases, we're trucking forward with six (6!) killer albums, and a handful of special new music on deck. Please read on and spread the word... This is our "formal" "news announcement" about what has been happening here at New Atlantis. Thank you for your support!

I'm excited and fortunate to offer up new music from some amazing and innovative musicians, to be released September 11, 2012 on New Atlantis. We'll be offering up six outstanding new releases. Read on for details...
Soon, we'll begin unveiling the specifics of a batch of music coming out this winter, from avant-jazz heavyweights like Elliott Sharp, Paul Dunmall, Ches Smith, Travis Laplante, and many more... Stay tuned to stay up!
Legendary drummer William Hooker debuts a new trio on A Postcard From the Road, featuring innovative electric guitarists Edward Ricart and Dave Ross, recorded live at a gig in Toronto last year. Bassist Jason Ajemian (of the Chicago Underground Trio, Marc Ribot's Sun Ship) unveils Joy Mega's debut, Forever is Something Inside You, featuring Mary Halvorson, Chad Taylor, Matt Bauder, and Jessica Pavone.
We're also growing our blossoming Cassette Series with some of the most exciting music I've found in my travels. The Psychotic Quartet's Cordyceps is a harrowing, dissonant and unsettling album, featuring musicians from Philadelphia and Sweden. We're proud to offer up a very intimate release from Hush Arbors (Keith Wood of Thurston Moore's band, Current 93, etc.) called 2 of Us Riding Nowhere. Richmond, VA's SCUO are a monstrously creative guitar+drums duo, and 5678765 melds avant rock arrangements with the tones and textures of jazz.
Lastly, we'll be partnering with a great DIY label, The Ghost is Clear, to release our first 12" LP, Infinite Teeth, from San Francisco, CA's ferocious Tigon. We're big fans of creative, challenging rock music, and this album will not disappoint! Fans of Amphetamine Reptile, Touch & Go, or Hydrahead, please take note.
This is our second batch of releases, marking our label's One Year Anniversary!
Many of our previous releases are still in print, so please fire away if you have any questions about the music... We've gotten some great feedback on Matta Gawa's sprawling free-rock scorcher Tambora, Jason Ajemian and the HighLife's genre-boundary-crashing Riding the Light into the Bird's Eye, Hyrrokkin's avant-rock debut Astrionics, and Nick Millevoi's (of Tzadik's Many Arms) album of solo electric 12-string guitar compositions, Black Figure of a Bird, among others!
As you may already know- New Atlantis is 100% independent, curated by musicians. We handle distribution, publicity, and design in-house. We sell direct, and partner with fellow independent vendors whenever possible. Feel free to browse our catalogue at http://www.newatlantisrecords.com.
