How to use the reserve function
If you'd like to purchase items from our site but want to save money on shipping costs, you can use our reserve function to combine your orders over an unlimited period of time, and ship them together for one combined shipping price when you are ready.Just hit the 'reserve' button at the checkout page as your shipping option when you've finished making your order, and your order will automatically be held in reserve here until you are ready for us to ship everything to you.
You can keep as many orders in reserve with us via our site as you like, until you are ready to ship. Just send us an email when you are ready to ship your reserve orders, and we will get in touch with the combined shipping price, or ship for free if you have exceeded the minimum order amount for free shipping to your address.
Can the reserve function be used to get free shipping? Yes - If your combined order total is more than £50 within the UK, over £150 within the EU, or over £225 worldwide, we'll ship your order to you via courier service, for free.
Here's a step by step guide to using it:
1. Click on the account icon to log into your account.
If you don't have an account, please click 'create account' to make one. If you had an account on the old RWDFWD site, please create a new one with the same email address used on the old site - this will ensure your previous orders are brought through to your new account.
2. Add records to your cart as normal.
3. When you're ready to check out, select 'ship'.
4. Then select 'Reserve items' on the shipping method list, then continue to payment.
5. Once payment is complete, your order will show in your account as 'unfulfilled'. We will have put all the products aside in reserve for you to combine with other orders and ship later in bulk.
6. When you're ready to ship all the items you have in reserve, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will calculate the shipping due and arrange for payment to be taken.
7. Sit tight and wait for your records to arrive in the post!
We offer free shipping on orders over a certain value
UK orders over £50
EU orders over £150
Worldwide over £225
This is automatically applied at checkout and reserve orders also count towards it.
EU Order info
Unfortunately, the UK is no longer part of the EU - This means that certain shipments sent to addresses there from us may be subject to tax and / or import duty - All orders sent from RWDWD are sent ‘DDU’ - That is, duty unpaid - any import tax and/or duty is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
If you would like to use our reserve function to group several orders into one large shipment, we can arrange for it to be sent tax and duty pre-paid so you don’t have to worry about it at a later date - Contact us for more information.
Memotone, aka Bristol's don dada multi-instrumentalist mentalist William Yates, lands on Accidental Meetings, the label (and runner of high grade club/not-club nights) also operating out of Bristol, two names that are truly pushing things forward in this city and beyond.
Great to see this local connection being made, and always good to hear a new piece from Memotone (also known as O.G. Jigg by the way!).
This one goes full fourth-world woozy across 13 tracks, letting Hassell'ian detuned wind instrument twistups rain down and shine over Sakamoto/Shimizu-school compositions and reductions - at least that's what we hear - resulting in a fully hazy, musically full, trip through warped worlds that are full of ambience, but not really ambient.... If that makes sense?
Well, nothing really makes sense in thi world anyway, let's be honest - and why should it? Also - sense is not what this album seems to be looking for - it seems more like there's a search for the unusual going on here.
On the 5th track (whoah, how did we even get here? Feels like we're lucid dreaming right now) - the subtle drone of machinery intermingles with the twinkle of metalic percussion and woodblock vibrations - leaving us feeling like we dug a hole out of a dreaded hospital waiting room, into a garden of zen - the latter being the stronger feeling for sure, thankfully. I guess what we're saying is - the sense of dread is subtle in these productions, remaining mostly as a kind of haunted contrast to the beauty of everything else. Contrast is also a keyword here I guess. Memotone's Clever Dog is walking off leash, sniffing out wondrous worlds in psychedelic mushrooms that grow on the hillside behind the highrise. Listening to this album is like a sensory trip between two worlds - the greyscale of our city world perhaps, and the multi-coloured facets of nature that lurk in between the cracks if you listen, or look closely enough.
Of course we're metaphorically speaking here... Letting our imaginations be guided by the sounds we're hearing (it's called listening to music).
But this album truly is one made to transport your mind. dim the lights, turn it up - see where it takes ya.
We certainly like where it took us. Maybe we'll meet there one day?! Seems like a better place, either way. A world for clever dogs - don't try to understand it - after all, we're only human.
