CASPIAN Australian tour, 2014
VINYL LP PRICE DROP
Vinyl in Australia is expensive. Shipping vinyl here is expensive. There are a lot of reasons for this, and even the most well intentioned of local labels/bands feel the pinch. Releasing records is difficult work. I have recalculated the cost of all our single LPs, including new releases, with some saving up to 20% OFF previous prices in line with production. Hobbledehoy doesn’t press in huge quantities, nor do we have the buying power of some, but my intention from day one was (and still is) to deliver quality product at an affordable and realistic price.
THESE ARE NOT SPECIALS. This is our pricing model. 7”s and 2LPs were already using this structure, and moving forward so will each new release. As things change in the global environment so will associated costs and our prices. But I wanted to reaffirm with everyone who supports us I’m endeavouring to keep releases reasonably priced and sustainable, while supporting our artists as best we can.
Discovering music is exciting and an important part of this whole experience we all engage in. I hope this benefits people in taking a chance on a band they enjoy but may be unfamiliar with, and simply give the choice to buy more records more often.
BE PROUD OF YOUR RECORD COLLECTION.
I ordered Tunnel Blanket (TWDY) and Caspian’s Waking Season from Hobbledehoy (reminds me I didn’t took pics of them, but i’ll do!)
Shipping costs are a real pain for sure, but I know it’s not the will of the store. Supporting the record store and having good music on vinyl is the most important for me ^_^
Actually I preordered the next TWDY :3
These LPs are so nice, the pressings are limited… and i like Australia so it makes them even more specials to me ;o
Keep going Tom and Hobbledehoy team, you’re part of my vinyl collection, I love it and i’m proud of it!
