The Joyful Noise 2013 Flexi Disc Series features new, unreleased recordings from 12 of our favorite bands - released monthly on square, single-sided, clear 7" Flexi Discs. Limited to just 1000 copies solely on Flexi Disc, these songs will not be released digitally or on any other format. Each release includes full artwork, featuring a unique cover provided by the respective bands.
WTF is a Flexi Disc you ask? Essentially it's a paper-thin vinyl record. And these particular Flexis are clear, single-sided, 7" squares. A pretty unusual format, but playable on any standard turntable.
Subscriptions are available on two levels:
Standard Subscription: $5 / month
Includes automatic monthly shipments of each Flexi Disc w/ full artwork.
Deluxe Subscription: $5 / month + $30
Includes monthly shipments of each Flexi Disc w/ full artwork, plus a hand-numbered, screen-printed wooden box set. Box Set is custom built to house the 2013 Flexi Discs, and features new artwork by Mackie Osborne.

Qty Limit: Limit of 3 subscriptions per customer. Don't try to order more and re-sell them on Ebay for $50 or something. We hate that.
Schedule & Individual Sales: Flexis are not available for individual sale, you must sign up for the entire subscription. Each individual release will be announced the first week of each month. We will not release a schedule ahead of time identifying which month is assigned to which band. It's a surprise bitches.
Payments & Cancelations: If you sign up for the monthly subscription, $5 plus shipping will be automatically charged to your card on or around the 1st of each month (you may also pay for the entire series in one payment of $60 +shipping). Monthly subscribers may cancel at anytime. No hard feelings. There will be a Waiting List created after the series is sold out, and any canceled subscriptions will be given to the next person in line. If payment doesn't go through at any point throughout the year you will be notified via email and given 72 hours to correct the situation before your account is cancelled.
Change of Address / Payment Info: Don't sweat it if you are moving soon, or if your card expires in 2013. Changing your address and payment info is easy, just contact us and we'll take care of it.
A Statement About "Unreleased Recordings": Each flexi disc features a never before released recording. Though many of these recordings are exclusively-written piece of music, some may be remixes, alternate versions, or demos of previously released songs. We consider these to be "unreleased" provided the flexi release is significantly different than the original recording (so don't get all bent out of shape if Melvins end up releasing a badass medley of Night Goat and It's Shoved or something). Joyful Noise will never release these flexi recordings digitally or in any other format. They are strictly limited to 1000 copies, exclusively on Flexi Disc.

* Yes the Box Set artwork identifies the band as "Built To Spill & Helvetia", and Doug Martsch and crew are on the recording. For legal reasons however, we are identifying the group as "Helvetia w/ members of Built To Spill". Don't worry, it's the same dudes.
