New World Records Maps the Past and Future of American Music 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

New World Records describes its purpose as being “dedicated to the documentation of American music that is largely ignored by the commercial recording companies. Like the university press, New World preserves neglected treasures of the past and nurtures the creative future of American music. In an industry obsessed with million-unit sales and immediate profits, New World chooses artistic merit as its indicator of success.” The locations that New World charts and connects span an extraordinary range of music-making, from the most traditional to the most experimental, and everything (non-commercial) in between.
