We had to update the prices both for the products and for the shipping costs. Good news is that customers abroad Norway don't have to pay the Norwegian VAT, so especially for the CDs, they will become cheaper alltogether with the shipping. AND excited to announce that we will make vinyl of the critically acclaimed and highly reccommended Jenny Hval & Susanna 'Meshes of Voice'. It will be double and come with the beautiful cover design by Johanna Blom/Arne Bendik Sjur. But it takes some time to make vinyl these days, and we won't promise to have it until sometime in the summer 2015. If you preorder it directly here, you will get a signed copy before the product is in the shops! LIMITED EDITION 500, the first 100 will be numbered and signed.
We launched a Best of Susanna series on cassettes this weekend, three volumes and a wonderful design by Lasse Marhaug. At the music festival arranged by The Wire Magazine and nyMusikk, Off the Page, we started the pre-sale of this series. Unfortunately the production of the cassesttes is delayed, and currently we have no certain date for when it's going to be finished. We hope soon!
