The Velvet Underground & Nico – Castle Face and Friends

We’re sure a lot of you caught wind of this last week – but Castle Face just sent out a big announcement in regards to that thing they’d been working on for a while [remember earlier they talked about the Dog Poison LP reissue and the new flexi book] It’s prettttty exciting. They’ve gathered together with a lot of their friends to recreate The Velvet Underground’s The Velvet Underground & Nico in a limited run of 1,000 LPs on banana yellow vinyl that will be sold solely through the CF online shop and via the bands at shows. So you won’t see this one in the shops. The compilation features contributions from Ty Segall, White Fence, Thee Oh Sees, Kelley Stoltz, Fresh & Onlys, Blasted Canyons, and others. You can check out the whole tracklist below. Gotta say – really can’t wait to hear Tim Presley’s take on “Run Run Run” and Oh Sees’ version of “European Son”. If you’re in the mood to make good decisions – head here and order your copy now. Between the dates of October 15th and October 29th, they’ll be premiering a track a day from the album on different sites. So get ready…
