Leesta Vall Sound Recordings is proud to announce the release of Politician / Sweet Memories, 2 brand new songs from New Haven based singer-songwriter, Seth Adam.  These 2 songs are part Seth's "East Rock" series, and are available in limited quantities on handmade lathe cut vinyl.  Only 50 copies were made.

POLITICIAN was written over the summer of 2016 in response to the political atmosphere and from the perspective of a laid-off factory worker. I listened to the politicians saying the things the masses wanted to hear, sometimes even what I wanted to hear, but knowing full well most of them won't listen to me, or the mass of constituents. I'm also convinced they're not listening to the laid-off factory worker.

SWEET MEMORIES was also written over the summer of 2016. As I saw the news, witnessing the shootings of unarmed men by police, followed by retaliations of frustrated people, I grew despondent. I thought to myself, "What can I do?" I thought about the mothers and fathers that lost their children - their loved ones - due to violence from a system that commits abuses of power. I thought about lost loved ones from both sides, again with a resounding, "What can I possibly do? I'm just a white guy living  in the northeast that lives a life that doesn't come into contact with events like this." I prayed for the mothers and fathers, hoping that they could someday have their pain eased, that they always remember the good times - the sweet memories - of their loved ones they lost.

Our limited edition lathe cut record releases are made on a modified antique record cutting lathe from the 1950's. Each record is handmade, one at a time, in real time, by a real person.
