Last night, I received a very surprising email from Sam Rosenthal of Projekt Records. During that massive snowstorm that hit New York City over Christmas, the roof of Projekt Records collapsed leaving them in the terrible situation of having to find and relocate to new offices in just two weeks. Please read Sam’s full note about the roof on Facebook.
To help ease the burden of their move, Projekt is doing a 25% discount on all orders over 20 dollars (before shipping) between now and January 4th purchased through their webstore.
Projekt Records is a very important contributor to the Steampunk musical scene. In addition to hosting both of the Sepiachord compilations I’ve reviewed and highly recommended multiple times on Trial By Steam, it also is the label for darkwave music and coined the term “dark cabaret” in 2005 when it released Projekt Presents: A Dark Cabaret by Projekt Records. Artists like the Dresden Dolls and Jill Tracy fall into this category, artists that Steampunk has embraced as part of our auditory soundscape.
So if you’ve got some extra money from the holidays and looking to expand your music collection, please consider taking a look at Projekt’s stock. The month’s Top Ten Seller’s list is a great place to start.
Here’s how the sale works:
- Sale ends at 10:00 am Eastern on Tuesday, January 4, 2011
- Place an order with a subtotal (before shipping) of $20 or more.
- Sale does not apply to pre-order items.
- Enter “I wanna help” in the Comments / Special Instructions area of the cart.
- 25% off your order
- We will manually adjust the price when we process your order.
- This sale applies to web-orders only; it is not applicable to mail-order.
- Sale is open to all customers, domestic and international.
Please note the following, because it’s important:
- We have limited email access at Projekt, right now. Shea cannot email back and forth about your orders. If we are out of something, we will remove it from your order and ship the rest.
- If you order with a credit card, we will process exactly your total.
- If you order with Paypal, please pay for your full order. Shea will refund the 25% discount. This will save having to email back and forth on the total.
Now’s a great time to order the Sepiachord Passport or Companion if you’ve been holding off to do so. There’s also a great collection of other artists you’re sure to enjoy so take a look and do some last minute holiday shopping before the work week begins again.
