Cheval Sombre 10th Anniversary Reissue (Updated!)

2019 marks the tenth anniversary of the debut self-titled Cheval Sombre ‘Diamond’ album. To celebrate the occasion, Fat Elvis Records will be releasing the album for the first time ever on vinyl.

Originally released  in 2009 on Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips’ Double Feature Records, the record was described as “deeply psychedelic, swathed in an enigmatic haze” by Time Out New York, “a fantastic debut album, when drone, psychedelia and, yes, American folk come together” according to 17 Seconds, and Drowned In Sound wrote that the album was “an angelic collection of hidden gems.”

The limited edition double LP will be pressed on coloured vinyl and include rare and unreleased early tracks as well as the original artwork preserved by Ben Javens.

Preorders will begin soon at with records shipping in late December.


I’ve received a few messages asking for more info on the upcoming Cheval Sombre reissue. Here’s what I have for you right now.

The records were expected to be on press November 20.

At the time the record was announced, I felt that the test presses would arrive soon after. We are still waiting for them. I contacted the pressing plant and asked about it, and I was told there was a skip on one of the sides. They are working on fixing the problem with the metalwork or possibly re-cutting the lacquers. Unfortunately, these things happen. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon. Once the test presses arrive, I will give them a listen. Once approved, more details will be announced with a date and time for the presale. I appreciate your patience. I hope it will not be much longer.

I am also working on a distribution deal with Clear Spot to get the record released in your favorite European record shops. I’m pretty sure I can get that worked out, and it shouldn’t be a problem. More info on that once I have it.

Thanks again for your patience!
