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 email@example.com 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.
Collaborative works from Ossia & chester giles via the Empty Head Rich Heart imprint -
The EHRH label have been nurturing fans of experimental music served on the fine 7" / 45 format for about two years now, in fact their first 7" disc from label boss 'Nazca' alongside 'Noclu' was one of the earlier items on our shelf at the HQ. Now presenting us with their fourth release, their records don't come about often, so it's always a nice surprise when we get our hands on a new addition from their unpredictable output, it is safe to say the focus lies on putting out well-considered, wide-angled music rather than rushing to keep up with the latest trend.
Strictly available on wax, and served in a small run of one hundred 7" discs, the label offer us two tracks that must be the fruit of a connection made during the label-boss's one year residence in their hometown Bristol.
First up, we have 'Shackles' a heavy-footed, light-headed trip that crushes through a mist of feedback and reverb before a concise poem by chester giles momentarily takes the attention to his projected headspace, a direct answer to the claustrophobic mood of the instrumental, which responds to chester's words with a subdued casiotone melody, warbling over a stripped-back edit of a King Tubby drum track and weighted blasts of low frequency.
On the flipside, the casiotone keyboard is plugged in once more, this time taking full focus, with a slow-motion one-take capture of one of it's drum tracks controlling the pace, heavily effected via the electronics in Ossia's studio, then dubbed once more with additional synth from the SH-201 and channelled through the mixing desk for extra-reduced dubwise aesthetics... Late night music.
