Artist: These Ghosts
Song: The Great Unknown
This track by three-piece rock outfit These Ghosts is taken from the debut compilation release Crossing Lines by NX records, which is a label collaboration between Goldsmiths, University of London's music department and Accidental Records. Recent Goldsmiths alumni include James Blake and Katy B, while the idea behind NX Records is to feature some of the best new music coming out of the New Cross/Deptford area of London. NX has heavily involved the artists featured on the LP; from getting their involvement on the artwork on Crossing Lines, to the formation of the NX Records label itself and in-store performances from them at the pop-up record store on New Cross Road that will launch NX in October/November.
It's an all-encompassing approach, with a label and artists working together to change up the traditional process of releasing a record, which all seems very exciting and new.
As well as These Ghosts, Crossing Lines features tracks by Holy Milk, Jamie Coe, Buffalo Ink, Machines, Thefft and more. The full album will be released by NX Records on 11 November.
