Greetings JNR friends:
We are pleased to announce our 2016 VIP Membership! In case you're unfamiliar, our VIP program is a special membership that includes exclusive limited vinyl, free downloads of all new releases, free shipping, and much more.
What are you supporting when you sign up? In the age of free digital music, JNR survives because of your VIP membership. We use these funds to pay for fundamental operating costs so the artists ultimately don't have to chip in for things like utilities, rent, packing materials, humble staff wages and other things. This gives us the freedom to treat our artists fairly, and release amazing music with less of an eye on financial viability.
In addition to the usual perks, we have some very exciting changes going into effect in 2016. Most significantly, we have a new singles series, featuring screen-printed, pressed 7" records (and the first one is the Melvins!), plus every VIP will now receive free shipping on all orders anywhere in North America, UK, or Europe.
Here are the details:
VIP Singles Series!
We have a brand new VIP-exclusive 7" series beginning in 2016! Throughout the year we will be releasing monthly singles, pressed on white or clear 7" vinyl w/ screen-printed artwork (and unique screen-printed design on side B). VIP singles feature our "Almost Live" sessions, as well as unreleased "Mystery Singles" from our roster.
And we're very happy to announce that the January installment comes from the Melvins! This is a much-requested, proper vinyl pressing of our Melvins "Almost Live" session in which they covered Bikini Kill's "Rebel Girl" featuring Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes)... now pressed on white vinyl w/ screen-printed art on Side B designed by Mackie Osborne, packaged in a screen-printed jacket. Check it:
No foolin’. We are now able to offer FREE SHIPPING for VIPs on ALL orders to North America, UK, or Europe! Yes, that means no more $18 shipping fees for you overseas folks. Priority shipping will still be available as an option, but if you’re a VIP and want standard shipping, there will no longer be any charge. Free shipping will go into effect on January 1, 2016. (Sorry to the folks living in other areas of the world, hopefully we will be able to offer the same deal to you soon.)
FINAL YEAR of the Flexi-Disc Series!
All good things must come to an end… 2016 will mark the fifth and final year for our annual flexi-disc series. And we’re going out with a bang. Lots of amazing artists lined up, who will be announced very soon.
NOTE: The custom-built, screen-printed wooden box will only be available to those who sign up for the yearly option.

NOTE: To any of you who are currently signed up for a Deluxe VIP Membership, this VIP Singles Series replaces that… We decided to lose the Deluxe vs. Basic hierarchy and just make it all one level of VIP Membership, with an option to get the VIP Singles Series. If you’re currently a month-to-month Deluxe member, you will be grandfathered into this series by default.
