Are you a big fan of getting sweet, sweet vinyl releases in the mail? Then you're probably going to dig PostWax. The subscription service, headed up by ex-Meteor City and current Magnetic Eye Records wax slinger Jadd Shickler, has enlisted the likes of Spotlights, Domkraft featuring Mark Lanegan, Elder and Lowrider to all release brand new material in 2019. PostWax will consist of seven releases, the first of which is Elder.
Here's a teaser of what you'll get each month.
Each PostWax 12-inch record will include a cohesive batch of killer new music that the band is stoked about, whatever music they want to include.
A PostWax release from one band might contain a 5-song EP, another a 9-song experimental full-length, and another might feature 2 songs of 15-20 minutes each.
We really have no idea – we trust these bands to deliver amazing music, and are leaving it entirely up to them.
PostWax releases will also be indescribably cool packages… put simply, you’ve never seen records like these. We're talking about:
- Next-level, futuristic, archival-grade sleeve design
- Hand-crafted artwork by internationally renowned artist Max Loeffler
- Behind-the-scenes liner notes by J.J. Koczan from The Obelisk
- A collector’s slipcase to house the entire year of releases
- Secret bonus goodies with each release
It's really going to be something special.
