2019 marked 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 four unreleased original demos as well as the ultra rare title track of single “If It’s You” (initially released by Static Caravan in an edition of only 95). Also included, a reproduced handwritten lyric sheet and a hidden surprise.
