Olympia’s K Records has been around since 1982 spreading DIY and truly indie music to the world – artists like Love as Laughter, Anna Oxygen, Girl Trouble, Built to Spill, Beat Happening, Steve Fisk, Thee Headcoats, Mirah, and Bikini Kill have released albums through K and that’s just the very short list – and now their using today’s advanced modern technology to further their mission by introducing the K Singles Zip-Pak.
It works just like music singles clubs of the past: subscribers pay a fee and get new songs delivered to them on a regular basis. As always, K represents established artists as well as new musicians you don’t yet know you love; the difference this time is that it’s all delivered electronically.
K Singles Zip-Pak subscribers can look forward to new songs by Mirah, Chain & the Gang, LAKE, Karl Blau and many others and get introduced to word by artists like City Center, Joey Casio, Rainbow Bridge and more. As a bonus, they’re offering credits towards other digital downloads, apps like photos, custom wallpapers, screensavers and behind the scenes images from their studio.
I’ve long since lost count of the huge number of musicians I’ve become a fan of via K; if you’re looking to expand your own musical horizons, the Zip-Pak’s actually a really good deal. The first Zip-Pak goes out July 1; an annual subscription gets you two songs a week for the next year. Even minus the two weeks they skip, that’s over a hundred songs for a mere $50. Better yet, save $5 by signing up by May 31 for $45. For more info or to subscribe, visit the K Singles Zip-Pak page.
