"The Flies in Dream and in Reality"
after the fenomenal success with albums "Rumorarmonio", "Faccia a Faccia", "Cuori de Petrolio", "Chappaqua", "Venezia", numerous singles and participation on compilation "Ten Years of Madness", cult stars of folk urbano sperimentale and decadent european muzak from Hau Ruck! label by Albin Julius (Der Blutharsch), t from Bella Wien presented their new and so-called 'russian album', released for Russian audience special!
"... when we were offered to compile a best-of-album to introduce our music to a larger russian audience we first intended to collect some of our album tracks together with single A & B sides on one CD - but when we had a look into our archives we decided to take this occasion to finally release also some of the sui-C-sides that - out of different reasons - never made it into one of our albums. Anyway, even if these might not be our very best songs, they are pretty representative for what Novy Svet is all about. Enjoy!" (j.weber, wien, 12/04/MMII)
expressive new release by Novy Svet features remixes of the best hits of the band, favourite songs, live-concert fragments as well as precious unreleased and rare archive material, selected and remastered from Novy Svet members special for the release!
lmtd.edition 1000 copies packaged in a three-panel-digipack, with unique full colour exclussive artwork by Marianne Plaimer and personal liner-notes from Novy Svet. beautiful collection for all true fans of the band!
"...what is far more important for novy svet is alchemy - we are always interested in making gold from shit... each sold novy svet cd is a slap in the face of all the shit groups which fill the air with their acoustical pollution. and we have some animals who are constantly hungry, so..."
Russian album of our all
time faves - still hardly to believe that it's true! Well, Novy Svet earned
many credits due to their honest and instant music vision - a bizarre inner
world, full of boldness, adventurism and frankness. They do not afraid to appear
ridiculous or misunderstanded when lost in thoughts about most important things.
Novy Svet always have their own unique view of any single thing, and I doubt
whether there are people who can escape their music touch. There's always a
kind of mystery around this band - you can expatiate on it hours by hours, but
no one will understand you exactly. But who cares? Well, let's listen better
what they have for us - sad clowns who had found their fun among the last celebration
of life. This CD was conceived for a long time - first as compilation of best
tracks from old albums, unavailable for russian audience for a reason of very
slow communication (when Novy Svet was already a cult for Europe, it was completely
unknown in Russia). There was also plans for re-releasing regular CD-albums
in low-budget form, specially priced for Russia. But, as fate has willed, we
got all at once (thanks to Igor Vaganov for his exclusive help)! New album with
retrospective parts, dedication and collaboration of many enthusiastic people
here and there. The album itself look like a Palekh-souvenir - when you take
this three-panel digipak, it feels like there is a space inside, so when you
open it, treasure will appear... but isn't it really so? Music is the absolute
treasure, it combines the best feelings like deep sadness and elational passion
- if it is life, I'll be happy to fly there from my dream.

The most recent Novy Svet
edition, this time made by the Russian label Achtung Baby!, is an anthology
of their not long but brilliant discography. Besides some new songs, we can
find in this edition some of their most important collaborations - Foresta Di
Ferro and Circus Joy. For those who are not very acquainted with this Austrian
project, this is a very nice sampling of their sonorities. For the connoisseurs,
this is a fundamental piece, not just because of the new tracks but also for
the excellent structural re-making of songs such as "Linia Alba" from
"Cuori di Petrolio".
