Third (January 10 2011)
We have finally sorted out the NKR digital store via Bandcamp! We are also very kindly being distributed (both physically and digitally worldwide) now through the wonderful Morr label in Germany, and Boomkat in the UK :) However, now you can also stream all of our back catalogue and buy whatever takes your fancy!
Each release will just be fixed at a fiver as well. Whilst we get things sorted out for the next release, once the art and mastering have been finalised we’ll be putting up digital pre-orders with the first track or two available for immediate download prior to actual physical release :)
The new look NKR packaging and formats mean that there will be a bit of a wait for the next release (a couple of months at least), but it’ll definitely be worth it. We’ve taken the decision to move away from the single packaging and ‘musical polaroid’ aesthetic, to limited edition vinyl, and double cd, cd/dvd packages which take a while to wrap up right. We’ve got a team in place now who are busy as bees getting NKR really running right. We WILL be doing re-issues of some of our quickly out of print releases in new packaging, but there will be a bit of a wait I am afraid for the re-issues (probably not this year to be honest)…we’ve had a lot of emails about The Green Kingdom, Studiocanoe and Fugenn and The White Elephants releases in particular as these went ridiculously quickly here in Japan. These will be getting a bit of a deluxe release but once again, not for a while so please don’t ask! :)

Just a quick update before the big one (honest!). We will no longer be doing the single card packaging as we’ve been wanting to do double cd packaging for a while. Yes, this does mean that most (all?) of the records will be out with two discs worth of lovely material for you to enjoy from now on :) We even have a couple of new designers who are joining the new team. For 2013, your design sensei and guide will be a certain Buna, who makes some of the best artwork we think, this side of the world, and the other for that matter.

Amazing film for ‘Brouk Bingo Bloud’ by Tomas Knoflicek, from the upcoming self-titled album by Wabi Experience. Keep watching until the end - seriously trippy! :)
