PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY (especially the "fine print" at the end):
Introducing The Flenser Membership SERIES TWO, a curated selection of 2020’s new Flenser releases. Members will receive eight LPs and one 7 inch. These will all be special editions unique to members only, meaning either special vinyl colors or supplemental artwork that isn't available to anyone else. Additionally, SERIES TWO members will be receiving an exclusive LP not available for sale anywhere else.
In 2019, the SERIES ONE membership contained Drowse’s “Second Self” in collaboration with Lane from Elizabeth Colour Wheel. SERIES TWO will feature an exclusive release of similar quality featuring a classic Flenser artist in collaboration with a good friend of the label.
Our first release of 2020 will be Mamaleek’s “Come & See,” a new phase for Mamaleek featuring a full-lineup and more psychedelic than previous efforts. This release is much in the spirit of Mamaleek’s upcoming Roadburn 2020 performance for the Flenser 10 year anniversary showcase.
Our second release of 2020 will be Midwife’s “Forever." "Forever" is absolutely crushing. It’s largely about the death of a close friend and constructs an extremely sad and relatable narrative that I think will resonate with many of us that have experienced loss in various forms. For me, Midwife is able to successfully take on universal themes and make them feel extremely personal, as if crafted individually for each listener.
Giles Corey’s classic EP “Hinterkaifeck” will see vinyl for the first time. SERIES TWO members will get a screen printed edition of this essential moment in the discography of Dan Barrett.

First crack at Flenser sales and promotion
In addition to the new albums we have planned for 2020, there will be a number of reissues and represses from our back catalog. Series Two will include new releases only, so long-time fans of the label won't have to worry about receiving doubles of albums they already own. However, we are going to be reissuing two classics this year: Giles Corey “Giles Corey” Gatefold LP+book as well as Planning For Burial’s “Leaving” 3LP. SERIES TWO members can opt into the EXTREME EDITION of SERIES TWO to include these.
Members will also receive Bandcamp downloads for all of the Series Two releases, as well as a discount of 10% off EVERYTHING from The Flenser webstore. Postage is included in the price.
SERIES TWO MEMBERSHIP:
$200 for Domestic Membership (i.e. within the USA) $250 for Canadian Membership $300 for the Rest of the World Membership
$270 for Domestic EXTREME Membership (i.e. within the USA) $320 for Canadian EXTREME Membership $370 for the Rest of the World EXTREME Membership
The fine print:
MEMBERSHIP CANNOT BE CANCELLED OR REFUNDED AT ANY TIME. As with all of our vinyl releases, manufacturing and production delays are possible. In order to keep the postage costs reasonable, members in Canada and the Rest of the World will receive their shipments in batches. Domestic members may also receive shipments in batches if multiple releases arrive around the same time. Due to the already complex nature of this endeavor, new orders cannot be combined with membership shipments. Sorry, no exceptions.
Series Two by definition includes our next 8 full-lengths, and is not limited to any timeframe with releases possibly not being limited to 2020. As of this date all Series Two releases are intended for a release in 2020.
The records included with Series Two are already planned out and finalized, but we may have other new releases land on our schedule that are not part of the Series Two. If this is the case, they will NOT be added to the Membership Series after the fact, and a separate purchase might be necessary. Additionally, the reissues and represses we have planned for this year are not a part of Series Two and will likewise require a separate purchase. Members will be given advance notice of any new releases that aren’t included in Series Two, as well as reissues.
Changes of address must be reported immediately to avoid additional reshipping charges. Please submit address updates to email@example.com along with the order number received at time of purchase.
