Holiday Specials from K!
No more fretting, peoples, all of your gift-giving desires can be fulfilled at the K Mail Order Dept. by perusing our various Special Holiday Offers. For instance:

K Shirts $10.00 for the Holidays!
For the month of December, the price of all K Shirts has been reduced to $10.00. This includes garments featuring LAKE, Kimya Dawson, Jeremy Jay, Mirah, Chain & the Gang, Tender Forever and other K-centric designs. Check it out at the K Shirts section of the K Mail Order Dept..

The Latest K 7” Grab-Bag!
A very important section of the K Mail Order Dept. is the Specials division, where one can find deals on music, garments, all that. The latest addition is a new International Pop Underground 45 Grab Bag. The concept is simple: Mail Order Maven Joel Brazzel throws a batch of the latest K Desirables (7”-style) in a bag and sell it for a price that will make you weep for joy (if you are the crying type). The December Grab Bag is distinguished from previous bargain sacks in that includes not just fab singles from the likes of Chain & the Gang, Spider & the Webs, Eprhyme and Angelo Spencer but also two volumes from the Dub Narcotic Disco Plate series, too: Atlas Sound “Atlas Shrugged” [DBN113] and Joey Casio “Share the Cup” [DBN115]. You can view the whole list (and order it) HERE.

Old Time Religion, Songbook, Vol. One!
There has been a re-issue of a very special album from the vaults of Olympia’s nascent and long dormant record label Pine Cone Alley: the first album by Old Time Relijun, Songbook, Vol. One. Recorded live to half-track reel-to-reel at Dub Narcotic Studio by Diana Arens at the end of 1996, this is more than an important historical document; Songbook, Vol. One tears holes in the fabric of all known realities. It’s the clang, combustion and mass confusion that started it all. Songbook, Vol. One is presented by a new label located in New York City, Northern Spy, founded by former Olympian Robert Keefe, who was privileged to witness the early Old Time Relijun many time as the room bubbled over. the K Mail Order Dept. has some copies of the Songbook, Vol. One CD available now!
