Waxploitation Records founder Jeff Antebi asked his favorite artists from the worlds of music and the visual arts to collaborate on original children’s stories for a multi-media “literary mixtape”. Those pairings can be found in the 350 page book Stories For Ways & Means and includes stories from Jim James, Nick Cave, Frank Black, Justin Vernon, Laura Marling, Devendra Banhart, Alison Mosshart as well as paintings/illustrations from Anthony Lister, James Jean, Dan Baldwin, Swoon, Will Barras, Ronzo, Kai & Sunny and more. For Record Store Day 2017, Waxploitation has created a limited edition artifact of narrations from the book on 12” colored vinyl (with an insert containing an excerpt from the book) with special guests like Zach Galifianlis, Danny Devito, Nick Offerman, King Krule, D.R.A.M., and more!
