A few months ago, we launched BCWax, an unlabel dedicated to the production of high-quality physical artifacts of some of the best independent music hosted on Bandcamp. You can read more about our motivations, but primary among them was to promote the creation of the kind of merch we ourselves would like to buy, and refine the system for selling it. So we detailed every resource used to produce our first release, and developed a slew of new features to help deliver it. Not that we’re more than .01% responsible, but here it is a relatively short time later, and the quantity, quality and variety of physical goods sold through Bandcamp is truly staggering. Sweet!
Today, we’re excited to announce our second release, Get It Together, from New Zealand funksters Sola Rosa. You can pick it up right here (enter discount code “wax” during checkout to knock 15% off). We hope you’ll have a listen because above all, it’s great music from hard-working, independent musicians like yourself. But we also hope you’ll take a look because it’s a gorgeous limited edition package (once again designed by Dan Stiles), and it’s exactly the sort of thing we’d like to purchase from every one of our favorite artists. It includes a beautiful LP (this time on translucent ice blue vinyl):
…stunning 12″x12″ silkscreen print of the cover (signed and numbered and using a metallic gold ink not present on the jacket):
…and of course an immediate download to keep you entertained while you wait for the mailperson.
If you already picked up our first release from Sophie Madeleine, thanks so much. We think this one will make a fine addition to your collection!
