Buddy System: A Kingfisher Bluez Singles Club

Image of Buddy System: A Kingfisher Bluez Singles Club


Every month in 2015 (and it looks like it'll be into 2016 a bit) we'll be releasing a 7" curated by one of our favourite record labels. This singles club is a celebration of selection- whether it's DJing, running a label, or making a mixtape. It's the thrill of hearing a great song and wanting to show absolutely everyone you know (and instantly convert them!). It's the reason I started making records with Kingfisher Bluez, and I still love that feeling. These labels are inspired, creative, and run by really fantastic people. The bands are all pretty great too!

By subscribing, you will receive all 12 7"s. You will also receive a complementary copy of KFB050, which will be a very special 7" release. The first 100 subscribers will ALSO receive a copy of KFB060; ("I'm Worried" by Mike Adams At His Honest Weight) on 7" vinyl, chosen by our friends at Flannelgraph Records.
There will be 3-4 mailouts throughout the year. Every mailout will include randomly inserted goodies like stickers, promo-only 7"s, badges, test pressings etc. There will be a strict one-time pressing of /300 hand numbered 7"s, 200 subscriptions will be available in total.

The curating record labels are:
Cloudberry (New York, NY, USA)
Elefant (Madrid, Spain)
Where It's At Is Where You Are (London, UK)
Polyvinyl (Champaign, IL, USA)
Shelflife (Portland, OR + San Francisco, CA, USA)
Fatcat (Brighton, UK)
Slumberland (Oakland, CA, USA)
K Records (Olympia, WA, USA)
Chapter Music (Northcote, VIC, Australia)
Moshi Moshi (London, UK)
Fortuna Pop! (London, UK)
Flying Nun (Christchurch, New Zealand)

and BONUS record by Flannelgraph Records (Bloomington, IN, USA)

So if you're counting, that's 14 records total!!!

If the shipping seems a bit pricey, it's because we are based in Canada!

The first six singles have shipped, if you order now, you will receive the first 9 together with the next shipment!

For free pickup from Neptoon Records In Vancouver, select Zimbabwe. As always, orders to Zimbabwe will be shipped for free. Pickup will be available at the same time as mail outs (3-4 records at a time).

ok, thank you! Your support means so much to me! Long live 7"s, long live indiepop!
