Stuff We Sell

Welcome To The New Web-Store

01.11.11

We have launched a major upgrade to the Dischord store which includes a brand new interface for the store and several new features that our longtime customers have been asking for, such as single file album downloads and a simplified check-out system.

The Dischord web-store carries hundreds of releases from bands and labels related in one way or another to the DC underground. The new store interface presents many more Featured Releases sections and clear navigation directly to the artists and labels whose releases we carry.

The Stuff We Sell store page also features this new blog which will be maintained by our mail-order guru, Rebecca, and will present news, updates, and general useful tidbits more specific to our mail-order customers. Read about the new store features after the jump!

Single File Album Downloads: We now offer the option to download your MP3 album purchase as a single compressed Zip file. This file will expand into a folder containing album tracks once it is downloaded and opened on your home computer. Please note that although these files are compressed they are still quite large and may take a long time to download without a high-speed internet connection. If you do not have a high-speed connection or simply prefer to download your MP3 tracks on at a time you may still do so. Your personal "My Account" page is where you will manage your tracks.

Disclaimer: We do not recommend using our download service unless you have a modest technical understanding of your home computer and its music software. Download times vary and can be quite long for single file album downloads. Dischord cannot be held responsible for customer software or hardware systems that may be incompatible with the delivery or functionality of Zip files or MP3 music files, nor can we be held responsible for any damage incurred by the improper handling of these files. Dischord does not support third party download managers, which can flood our system with unsupported data requests and compromise your tracks. If you have any questions you may call us at 703-351-7507 or send an email to digital@dischord.com

Single Page Checkout: We have simplified our check-out process to a single page that adjusts to the shipping and payment options your select. If you have purchased digital albums or tracks, or vinyl with free MP3s, you will be able to download your material immediately upon check-out, without having to navigate to another part of the website.

Commenting: We are experimenting with adding comment sections to our news items and release pages. Commenting is available to account holders and will be monitored. We encourage the respectful exchange of ideas and opinions but we are not interested in noise or bigotry so, you know...do the right thing.

New Store Interface: Our new store interface relies more on Featured Releases sections and a more powerful search function to guide you to the many kinds of Dischord and non-Dischord content that we carry. We've never had a problem featuring Dischord stuff but we also carry hundreds of very cool CDs, LPs, Books, etc. from other Washington, DC related bands and labels and we'd like to offer them a better platform to be seen and heard.

I always look at Comment sections with trepidation. Here's hoping for the best.
