Store Update: sóley - Mother Melancholia

10.17.21

sóley  - Mother Melancholia     

With three solo LPs under her belt, Icelandic musician sóley , is releasing her new concept album, Mother MelancholiaMother Melancholia is the soundtrack to the end of the world as we know it. The new album sees sóley move away from the indie-pop of her previous releases. She began by experimenting with writing songs on the accordion, allowing her a new sense of freedom in her writing. The process allowed her to broaden her horizons even further and experiment with a whole range of new and exciting sounds.  In true soundtrack style, the album flows through the end of the world in chronological order, closing with the Earth’s final moments.  Mother Melancholia is the mark of an artist confidently striding into more experimental territory. Sóley felt compelled to try something new and express the real her. The music might be shrouded in darkness but it’s a move that fills her with joy and freedom. 




Dischord #200 Boxset Update

10.08.21


When we created the pre-order site for the Dischord #200 Boxset we knew that the enormity of the project combined with the already-overloaded pressing plants meant that the production would take months and months to finish. With that in mind, we made it clear on the site that we had hoped to be able to deliver the boxsets by late 2021, thinking that we would likely be able to ship them out in late October or early November.

Covid outbreaks, machinery breakdowns, supply chain issues, and shipping delays have now added at least couple more months to the delays, so now it’s looking like late December is the earliest that the finished pieces will go into the mail.

The situation is truly out of Dischord’s control and all we can really do is keep the lines of communication open with the manufacturers to encourage them to keep pushing to get this thing made. At this point all of the vinyl has been pressed, but the records have gotten stuck in the shipping/cargo crisis and we don’t know when they’ll arrive at the assembly plant.

We very much appreciate all of the patience and trust that our pre-order customers have given us and we’ll send out another update when we have a clearer idea of actual schedule for the release.

Thank you! 

- Ian and Jeff




Store Update: ESCAPE-ISM - RATED Z

09.23.21

ESCAPE-ISM - RATED Z

RATED Z is the new record from minimal rock 'n' roll duo ESCAPE-ISM, the legendary "found sound dream drama"  featuring Ian F Svenonius & Alexandra Cabral. 

RATED Z is a declaration of a new underground, distinct from the tedious drivel of self-satisfied corporate indie rock. RATED Z continues Escape-ism's commitment to minimalism, impertinence, and the search for new modes of communication with those fellow travellers who are loath to fall in line with the latest thing. The song "Rated Z" declares Escape-ism's commitment to absolute obscurity, while "Rocker's Delight" outlines a hang out scenario for the fringe elements who rally  to Escape-ism as the last gasp of poetry & playfulness in an oppressive landscape of artless algorithm rock. "Teenage Surrealism PT I & II" delineates a dialogue with a dream, and "Whatever People Say That I Am"  is a soon to be theme song for those who can't be numbered, named, and filed away. 





Store Update: Jim Saah - In My Eyes

09.21.21

Jim Saah - In My Eyes

Celebrated photographer and filmmaker Jim Saah is releasing his first book, In My Eyes: Photographs 1982-1997 (Cabin 1 Books). Decades in the making, the collection features many of Saah's most iconic photographs from the early Washington, D.C. punk scene and beyond. Its sprawling 332 pages of black-and-white images capture both the spirit of the time and Saah’s peerless work ethic — armed with a camera and countless rolls of film, Jim was ubiquitous within the D.C. scene. In My Eyes: Photographs 1982-1997 serves as a living document of all of those years of hard work.





Endgame Addendum!

06.12.21

Though we suspect that most everyone who wanted to place a pre-order for the Dischord 200 Boxset was able to, it has come to our attention that some people may have had problems accessing the site owing to heavy traffic.  Just to make sure that everyone gets a crack at it, we’ve decided to leave the order site operational through Sunday (6/13) evening for any stragglers or people who were unable to get through.

We’ll be placing the pressing order on Monday and looking forward to getting the records made.
Thanks to everyone who has ordered! 




First Six Dischord Records - 7" Inch Box Set

06.10.21


Tomorrow (Friday, June 11th) is the last day to place a pre-order for the First Six Records Boxset.

The pressing quantity will be based on the number of pre-orders we receive and, considering how complicated this project has been, there are no plans to ever repress the boxset.

Dischord 200 is not being sold wholesale to stores or distributors.

It's only available through Dischord mailorder through tomorrow (Friday, June 11th).

We've done our best to get the word out and hope that people who wanted it have placed an order.

If you happen to know someone who was thinking about it, please let them know that the thinking comes to an end tomorrow at midnight.

Remember, each boxset comes in its own mailer, so only one boxset per order. However, you can order as many times as you want (one person ordered 13 times!).

We've been pretty overwhelmed with the response we've gotten for this project and thank you all for your support.

Tomorrow, Friday, June 11th, is the last day to definitely secure a copy of the boxset. After we stop taking pre-orders and are able to put together a final tally is when the real work begins.

40 years on… still making records.

Store Update: Ian Svenonius - The Psychic Soviet

07.14.20

Ian Svenonius - The Psychic Soviet

A new, expanded collection of essays and articles from one of the mainstays of the Washington, DC, underground rock and roll scene, The Psychic Soviet is Ian F. Svenonius’s groundbreaking first book of writings. The selections are written in a lettered yet engaging style, filled with parody and biting humor that subvert capitalist culture, and cover such topics as the ascent of the DJ as a star, the “cosmic depression” that followed the defeat of the USSR, how Seinfeld caused the bankruptcy of modern pop culture, and the status of rock and roll as a religion. The pocket-sized book is bound with a durable bright-pink plastic cover, recalling the aesthetics of Mao’s Little Red Book, and perfect for carrying into the fray of street battle, classroom, or lunch-counter argument.
