140gm vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. New West Records is proud to release recordings from Athens, GA luminaries The Glands. Unreleased music has surfaced in the form of a 23-song record - titled Double Coda - featuring all original songs written by the late Ross Shapiro. Ross's passing left a hole in Athens, in the community where he had become a fixture and arguably even a celebrity of sorts. And there really is something heroic about his career as an artist, something noble to a life devoted to creativity and creation, even if that mostly means jamming with friends. The Glands first two albums established Ross as an unlikely and maybe even unwilling cult artist; you could argue that not enough people bought Double Thriller and The Glands, but everyone who did became avid fans for life. And even though we only have access to an infinitesimal portion of the music he made, these two albums-and now this third!-add invaluable detail and nuance to our portrait of Ross Shapiro.
