Postage rate hikes/2013 update

  Chances are if you're reading this you're already aware of the ridiculous new USPS rates that went into effect yesterday.  The price increase for domestic shipping isn't outrageous, but the new rates for shipping out of the country are pretty fucking insane.  LPs especially.

  A new (and hopefully easier) ordering format is implemented in the store. Prices in the paypal buttons have been adjusted to reflect the new rates, many apologies to the number of overseas weirdos that support Retrograde.  I'm looking for a better, smoother, and cheaper solution but until I find one I'm at the mercy of USPS & the lobbyists who shout the loudest.  As always, feel free to hit me up if you're looking to order in volume, have questions, or just want to bitch about how goddamn retarded this is.


  For 2013, the next batch of tapes is just about done, an Elders repress will likely surface with it, and some interesting new distro items will be showing up in the shop before the spring.

  A bit slow on the draw with this one, but the entirety of Den's Electric Eyes 7" can be streamed in this article.  Akers also has Tough To Kill & some of his previous releases available on his Bandcamp for your wanton ears.

  30 minutes of new Kraken Mare material will birth via Luke Morris's excellent Rocket Machine imprint sometime in the near-to-distant future.

  Lastly, Den is plodding along writing an LP for BLVD Records that will likely be recorded sometime in the spring & released in the summer if all goes well.  

That's all for now.  Stay spaced.

rgt# 12: Den - Electric Eyes 7"

rgt #12: Den - Electric Eyes 7"

Den returns on a 7 inch slab with three songs of cosmic thud, interstellar grooves, and dead-planet desolation.  Electric Eyes is a continuing expansion starting with an abduction prayer, followed by a ride on a stream of Kraut photons & finally ending in an Antarctic sludge ritual, all woven together with enough dark matter to fuel your FTL travels well beyond the solar system & out into the distant depths of uncharted space.  

Electric Eyes comes in a two-color silk-screened cover & a full color insert in an edition of 300.
