IMPORTANT: DUE TO SHIPPING ISSUES WE ARE UNABLE TO SEND MORE THAN THREE ITEMS PER ORDER.
The New Mendicants debut album Into the Lime is out now! You can order the vinyl LP right here, direct from the band’s label XPT. If you're in North America you can order the CD direct from Ashmont Records. And if you'd prefer digital, you can buy it on iTunes.
The album was recorded sporadically, between the summer of 2012 and spring 2013 in Ontario, Canada. There are nine original songs plus a cover of Sandy Denny's By The Time It Gets Dark. The first song on the album is called Sarasota, and you can listen to it by clicking the play button below.
Or sign up for The New Mendicants' email list and get "Sarasota" as a free MP3 download.
The album sleeve was created by Bruce Mau Design in Toronto. The XPT vinyl release will be pressed on badass clear vinyl with a rich four-color label. Every LP sleeve will contain an Isong Card with a download code. Joe, Norman and Mike will sign the first 500 copies of the XPT LP only. (Just so you know, in order to sign them, the shrink-wrap will be removed.) There is a 100% chance that Joe, Norman and Mike will have filled your order and schlepped it down to the post office. We will do everything in our power to make sure you have your LP in-hand by the street date. That said, please be aware and sensitive to the fact that we cannot control the efficiency of the U.S. and Canadian postal services…yet.
Also, our initial press run is 1000 LPs. If it looks like we’re going to sell out, we’ll go into repress. That means you might have to wait a little while to get your copy. We hope to be able to predict the need for a repress pretty quickly, in which case the wait shouldn’t be too long. (Famous last words.) We will keep you updated on the status of the pressing.
Now comes the rub. XPT CAN ONLY SHIP OUR VINYL TO NORTH AMERICAN, AUSTRALIAN, NEW ZEALAND & JAPANESE ADDRESSES. Please note: WE CAN NOW SHIP ALBUM VINYL (NOT 7" VINYL) TO THE UK/EU. TO BUY THE 7" VINYL IN THE UK/EU, PLEASE VISIT ONE LITTLE INDIAN.
If you would like to buy:
1. A CD in North America, visit Ashmont Records.
2. A CD in Japan, visit P-Vine Records.
3. A CD in Australia or New Zealand, visit Spunk Records.
4. A CD everywhere else (incl. UK and Europe), visit One Little Indian Records.
5. A digital album download, visit iTunes.
Again, not to put too fine a point on it, but XPT can and will only ship to North American, Australian, New Zealand, Japanese and (with some restrictions) UK/EU mailing addresses. Thanks for understanding.
We hope you enjoy the music. Cheers.
