    Win All Four Jellyfish Albums at Popdose

    Wait, I thought Jellyfish only released two albums. That is correct, but in Omnivore’s quest for the perfect pressing to honor those releases, we scrapped an entire run of finished goods. They were ready to ship. But, beforehand, we played them and said “No way, can’t do it like this,” and had them redone to be the stellar, beautiful, and audiolicious copies available now.

    Welcome to the World

    We’ve really appreciated your patience over the past month or so since we opened the web store. We’ve been modifying and tweaking it, and trying to figure out the best ways get music directly to you! You’ll now notice that we’ve added Media Mail as an option for our U.S. customers and we can now ship internationally. You’d think that making these changes would be easy but frankly, nothing is easy! We’re very sensitive to how much it costs to ship packages (we buy a lot of records ourselves) and we’ve been trying to find the very best rates. Again, thank you for your patience in this matter!
