    We are very excited to welcome a new member to the JNR family: the incredible Rafter!

    We have been fans of Rafter for many years. The songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist has spent the past decade releasing a series of sonically diverse albums via our friends Asthmatic Kitty (JNR devotees may also remember that Rafter was included in our 2012 Flexi-Series). One of the most intense music nerds you may even meet, Rafter pursues everything he sets his mind to -- which has included playing in bands since the age of two, building recording studios, making music for commercials, and eating vegan -- with a sense of fearlessness and a refreshing lack of hipness.

    The new album XYZ is equal parts fractured and beautiful... And in our opinion as longtime Rafter fans, it's his best album to date. The VIP edition is limited to 260 hand-numbered copies on black-inside-red vinyl.
