Black Eyes to reunite for East Coast shows this spring

11.15.22

Washington DC’s Black Eyes will reunite for three shows this spring in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their S/T debut album. Dischord will also reissue the record, bringing it back into print on LP for the first time since 2009. 

Black Eyes formed in 2001. The band was together only two-and-a-half years, but left a lasting mark in DC and beyond. Across 200 shows and two albums (2003’s S/T and 2004’s Cough), the group maintained a feverish and experimental energy, with shows that often melted into ecstatic percussive free-for-alls. Shows are currently scheduled in DC, New York, and Philadelphia. Find the complete schedule and venue information here.

Soulside’s new record “A Brief Moment in the Sun” will be released on Nov 18th.  The record was written from four different locations during the heart of the coronavirus pandemic and then recorded in person by J.

Hammered Hulls - Careening Out On Oct 28th

Store Update : The Casual Dots - Sanguine Truth

08.25.22

The band is excited to announce the release of “Sanguine Truth," their second 10-song full-length album, on Christina Billotte's Ixorstix Records and produced by Fugazi's Guy Picciotto. These songs were composed and recorded between 2004 and 2019, at Inner Ear Studios with Don Zientara and at Figure 8 Studios in Brooklyn with Eli Crews. Spread out between three of the western world’s largest cities, the band members would regroup periodically to add a song here and there. Although the songs were written over a long span of time about various events and themes over the years, many of the album's songs appear particularly relevant to recent times . For example, the lyrics for “Frequency of Fear” were written and recorded in January of 2016, when there was not more than an inkling of the political insanity that would be realized over the next several years. The instrumental “17 Year-Old Locust” was written in 2004, the year of the same locusts that spawned 2021’s Brood X. Then, “Palindrome” is a reminiscence of a friend who decided to depart this world too soon, a situation that seems to be more prevalent than ever in this day and age. This is on clear vinyl.

Boxset Update 3/11/22

03.11.22

We’re happy to announce that the pre-ordered Dischord 200 boxsets have now all left the pressing plant and are in the mail.

The packages were shipped chronologically according to the order dates and it took approximately two weeks to get everything sent off.

If you have not already received yours, please allow a week or two for the packages to be delivered.

This has been an extremely complicated project made infinitely more complicated by the pandemic, supply-chain issues, and shipping delays, so your patience with us and this project is very much appreciated!

- Dischord
Special message for international customers: 

If you haven’t already received your boxset, please contact your local post office to see if they are holding the package there. 

PS- Please direct any questions to <boxset (at) dischord.com>




Boxset Update 12/10/21

12.10.21

We are pleased to announce that after being held up at the port for nearly six weeks, the vinyl has finally been delivered to the plant where the boxsets will be assembled. The project is now in line to be completed and the company doing the work is estimating that we’ll have the finished pieces ready to ship in late January/early February.

Please be aware that shortages and delays are still holding things up and it’s possible that the release will be pushed back even further, but we’re hoping that this schedule will hold and we’ll finally be able to deliver #200.  

Thanks again to all of you who have pre-ordered and have been so patient about the situation!

Store Update: sóley - Mother Melancholia

10.17.21

sóley  - Mother Melancholia     

With three solo LPs under her belt, Icelandic musician sóley , is releasing her new concept album, Mother MelancholiaMother Melancholia is the soundtrack to the end of the world as we know it. The new album sees sóley move away from the indie-pop of her previous releases. She began by experimenting with writing songs on the accordion, allowing her a new sense of freedom in her writing. The process allowed her to broaden her horizons even further and experiment with a whole range of new and exciting sounds.  In true soundtrack style, the album flows through the end of the world in chronological order, closing with the Earth’s final moments.  Mother Melancholia is the mark of an artist confidently striding into more experimental territory. Sóley felt compelled to try something new and express the real her. The music might be shrouded in darkness but it’s a move that fills her with joy and freedom. 




Dischord #200 Boxset Update

10.08.21


When we created the pre-order site for the Dischord #200 Boxset we knew that the enormity of the project combined with the already-overloaded pressing plants meant that the production would take months and months to finish. With that in mind, we made it clear on the site that we had hoped to be able to deliver the boxsets by late 2021, thinking that we would likely be able to ship them out in late October or early November.

Covid outbreaks, machinery breakdowns, supply chain issues, and shipping delays have now added at least couple more months to the delays, so now it’s looking like late December is the earliest that the finished pieces will go into the mail.

The situation is truly out of Dischord’s control and all we can really do is keep the lines of communication open with the manufacturers to encourage them to keep pushing to get this thing made. At this point all of the vinyl has been pressed, but the records have gotten stuck in the shipping/cargo crisis and we don’t know when they’ll arrive at the assembly plant.

We very much appreciate all of the patience and trust that our pre-order customers have given us and we’ll send out another update when we have a clearer idea of actual schedule for the release.

Thank you! 

- Ian and Jeff




Store Update: ESCAPE-ISM - RATED Z

09.23.21

ESCAPE-ISM - RATED Z

RATED Z is the new record from minimal rock 'n' roll duo ESCAPE-ISM, the legendary "found sound dream drama"  featuring Ian F Svenonius & Alexandra Cabral. 

RATED Z is a declaration of a new underground, distinct from the tedious drivel of self-satisfied corporate indie rock. RATED Z continues Escape-ism's commitment to minimalism, impertinence, and the search for new modes of communication with those fellow travellers who are loath to fall in line with the latest thing. The song "Rated Z" declares Escape-ism's commitment to absolute obscurity, while "Rocker's Delight" outlines a hang out scenario for the fringe elements who rally  to Escape-ism as the last gasp of poetry & playfulness in an oppressive landscape of artless algorithm rock. "Teenage Surrealism PT I & II" delineates a dialogue with a dream, and "Whatever People Say That I Am"  is a soon to be theme song for those who can't be numbered, named, and filed away. 





Store Update: Jim Saah - In My Eyes

09.21.21

Jim Saah - In My Eyes

Celebrated photographer and filmmaker Jim Saah is releasing his first book, In My Eyes: Photographs 1982-1997 (Cabin 1 Books). Decades in the making, the collection features many of Saah's most iconic photographs from the early Washington, D.C. punk scene and beyond. Its sprawling 332 pages of black-and-white images capture both the spirit of the time and Saah’s peerless work ethic — armed with a camera and countless rolls of film, Jim was ubiquitous within the D.C. scene. In My Eyes: Photographs 1982-1997 serves as a living document of all of those years of hard work.
