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.

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!

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.
We're a bit late on this, it came out a few months back, and it's been on the list for some time now - but certainly never forgotten.
It was more of a case of getting round to the review... It's such a momentous piece, so much depth and starkness - it was a rather daunting thought getting round to summing this one up in words.
If you read the line above, then you probably realise that we're big advocates of Andy Stott's work, whether as a solo artist or as Millie & Andrea (alongside Miles Whitaker from Demdike Stare) - Over the last decade or so, Andy Stott seems to have pushed right through to the cutting edge of modern electronic music.
From the delicate textures and the angelic vocals, the whispering hi-hats through to the low-slung rhythms and high-pressure sub frequencies, it's a sound that encompasses something ultra-heavy and super lightweight at the same time... With it's influences submerged in original sound and production, Andy Stott has achieved something that sounds well-formed and effortless, in all accounts -
From start to finish, 'Faith In Strangers' is icy fresh on the ears.
We can't recommend this enough, it's a really strong Album, a perfect follow-up to 2012's 'Luxury Problems'
Here are some words by the Modern Love label itself, with a bit of background knowledge to entice you further -
’Faith In Strangers’ was written and produced between January 2013 and June 2014, and was edited and sequenced in late July this year. Making use of on an array of instruments, field recordings, found sounds and vocal treatments, it’s a largely analogue variant of hi-tech production styles arcing from the dissonant to the sublime. The first two tracks recorded during these early sessions bookend the release, the opener ‘Time Away’ featuring Euphonium played by Kim Holly Thorpe and last track ‘Missing’ a contribution by Stott’s occasional vocal collaborator Alison Skidmore who also appeared on 2012’s ‘Luxury Problems’.
It's a must.
