Nuclear Bubble Wrap’s “Psycho Delicacy” and “Multiverses” come to cassette

While we gear up for our next vinyl LP release, we’re excited to bring you two brand new cassette tape releases!

Psychedelic nerd-rockers Nuclear Bubble Wrap are bringing two of their albums to cassette tape for the first time. Combining a wide range of psych influences from Ween to The Flaming Lips with the band’s trademark wit, these uniquely designed cassette tapes are a treat for collectors. Both limited to 100 copies.

Picture Discs Update & Test Press Auctions!

Greetings, everyone! Got some news regarding the decagon shaped picture discs. They’re scheduled to ship from the pressing plant the week of March 12. Admittedly, we did think it would be sooner than that at first. But as things sometimes go, there was an unforseen production delay. It’s been worked out, and we can report that they’ll be in our hands in just a couple of weeks. The picture above comes directly from the plant!

There will only ever be 250 of these. Copies are still available here!

Reminder that if you ordered a Crumbling Polycolor or a Fourth Colour variant along with a picture disc, even as separate orders, we will be shipping them at the same time. Thank you for your patience.

Test Pressing Auctions!

We’re auctioning two test pressings on eBay this week! Whatever we make from these will go directly towards the next Needlejuice release. We’re not only selling the regular test pressing, but also one for the picture disc! The picture disc test pressings are unique because the play area doesn’t even start until midway down the record, to account for the decagon shape cut area. They’re also 45 RPM.

  • Thank you all for your patience as we work through getting all of your orders processed. Here’s where we’re at right now:
  • United States orders up through #1062 have been shipped.
  • International orders are going out steadily. So far about 100 of them have been shipped.
  • 647 orders have been shipped. There are currently 397 total orders left to process (including picture disc orders). We’re more than halfway there.
  • If you’re in the US, and your order number is past 1062, you can expect yours to go out within the next few days, chronologically.
  • If you ordered a picture disc along with a Crumbling Polycolor or Fourth Colour variant (even as a separate order), we’re waiting to ship your items at the same time, once we have the picture discs. If you fall into this category, you can email weirdojace@gmail.com with questions/concerns and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
  • If you only ordered a picture disc, as stated above, we’re still waiting on their arrival. They’re coming!
  • Many questions have been brought up regarding if we’ll have any leftovers. The answer is that it’s likely we will, but we’re waiting until all the orders have been processed to put any remaining stock back onto the website.Thank you for your patience. The shipping is currently a one-dude operation, and we’re working hard on being as efficient as we possibly can be.

And speaking of picture discs…

Picture Discs: In Production!!!


We just got this photo from the pressing plant! The decagon-shaped picture discs are happening right now, as I’m typing this. We think they’re looking quite gorgeous. About 130 of them remain. And while another run of a “regular” Poly variant isn’t out of the question, we definitely won’t be making anymore of this particular collectible variant. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Also, they’re pressed at 45 RPM to preserve audio quality. Since these are being pressed right now, we don’t have very much longer to wait until orders for these start shipping.

There are only about 20 cassettes and 30 CDs left!

That’s about it for right now. Thank you all for being so cool throughout this process. See you when the picture discs arrive!

Polygondwanaland LPs NOW SHIPPING

 



 

King Gizzard LPs NOW SHIPPING

 

Polygondwanaland – Unboxing Video!

The day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived! Polygondwanaland LPs are now shipping! For the next few days, we’ll be working around the clock getting all of your orders into your hands.

When your order ships, you’ll receive an email from our website notifying you that your order has been completed. Tracking numbers will be available to you. We’ll be updating our Facebook and Twitter feeds with our progress as we package and ship your orders.

Also, yes, there’s a good chance we’ll end up with some leftovers of the Crumbling Polycolor and Fourth Colour variants. When we find out exactly how many, we’ll let you know.

This has been a wild ride. Thank you so much for your support. And of course, we have to thank King Gizzard for making all of this even possible in the first place.

 

There are still about 140 copies left of our special 3rd variant: the Polygon Infinity 45 RPM double 10″ decagon-shaped picture disc. These aren’t shipping just yet, but we should be receiving these from the pressing plant in just a few more weeks.

Hang them on a hook. Put them on display.

 

Only about 30 Polygondwanaland cassette tapes remain. These are very special yellow cassettes with Dolby type B noise reduction applied, and a full J-card. If you’re into cassettes, we think you’ll find this one quite satisfying to own. And they’re only $4!
 

There are also only about 30 of the Polygondwanaland CDs left. Digipak package, only $5.
What about those test pressings?? We’re not just gonna hoard those are we??

Of course we aren’t. 🙂

We’ll be doing something special with the test pressings for both the regular variants and the picture discs. Stay tuned!

Needlejuice Records Are Musicians Too?!

What? The people who started an indie record label also make music?? I bet you never guessed such a thing.

 

Now that we’ve come this far in our journey, we’d like to share some of our own art with you. The music is playable directly on the album pages on the Needlejuice website.

Jace McLain’s band is Nashville’s Nuclear Bubble Wrap, a psychedelic rock band from Nashville. Their 2014 album Psycho Delicacy is not only trippy, but also just as goofy as it is anxious. Heavily inspired by bands like Ween and The Flaming Lips, the album is a 70 minute collection of diverse sounding psychedelic rock, with a layer of dark humor.

 

Austin Ash’s band is Smashy Claw, an experimental rock band from Denver. In 2016 they released their album Insane is Repeating, complete with a music video for every song. Inspired by They Might Be Giants and Ween, this is a frantic concept album about repetition. From the intense gypsy-rock opener “White Coats” to the sprawling 8-minute circus nightmare “Primeval in Cm”, the album is an eclectic adventure through every genre imaginable. This album hits you with songs that are funny, songs that are sad, and songs that are both funny and sad.

Thank you for the support and for sticking with us through this crazy endeavor. We hope you enjoy your records as much we enjoyed making them.

 

Polygondwanaland Update #7

Poly Day is almost here!

Our pressing plant, Pirates Press just shipped the Polygondwanaland LPs to us. We will have them very soon! As soon as we get them, we’ll be working around the clock packaging up and shipping each one of your orders!

Now would be a good time to remind everyone to make sure your shipping address is accurate! If you have an address change to make, email weirdojace@gmail.com or message the Needlejuice Facebook page.

Cassettes Have Landed!


Cassette nerds will be happy to know that the Polygondwanaland cassettes have arrived and are now shipping! These are Dolby B noise reduction compatible, yellow cassettes with full color inserts and labels, and they’re only $4 + shipping. As of now there are only about 30 left!

Polygondwanaland CDs (which are shipping now too) are still in stock as well.

Picture Disc Test Pressings!

Ever wanted to see a test pressing of a picture disc? Well here you go– a piece of clear vinyl with a plain white sheet inside! We received these test pressings last week, which of course, are for our third Polygondwanaland variant: the 45 RPM “Polygon Infinity” Decagon-Shaped Picture Disc, shown below.

There are still about 100 of these left. This is a very special short-run variant and once they’re gone, they’re gone! These will start shipping a few weeks after the “Crumbling Polycolor” and “Fourth Colour” variants ship.

Click here to order one.

Follow us on Twitter!

We’ve primarily been using Facebook as a means of communication, and finally sat down and made a Twitter account. If you’d like to follow us there, head on over to see posts from us from all corners of the internet!

Alright, that’s it for right now. The Poly records are officially on their way to us. See you when they get here!

Polygondwanaland Update #6

Two weeks until we have the LPs.

Greetings, everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

Got a little status report for you: we have the official word from Pirates Press that the Polygondwanaland LPs will be finished in two weeks! Shipping will begin immediately once we have them. The moment we’ve all been waiting for will be upon us soon!!

Polygondwanaland CDs are now shipping. As of now we have 40 left.

Polygondwanaland cassettes are currently in production. As of now we have 38 left. (Also, they’ll have Dolby NR!)

Polygondwanaland decagon-shaped 10″ 45 RPM picture discs have entered the test pressing phase. As we did with the original Polygondwanaland LPs, we’ll be sending email updates showcasing the test pressings and updating you about the production of these records. Only 250 of these will be made! Hang them on a hook. Put them on display.

Thank you so much, everyone. See you in two weeks with a mountain of boxes full of records.

Polygondwanaland Update #5

Test pressings!


We received the test pressings from Pirates Press last week and they sound absolutely wonderful. The plant has moved forward with production, and at this point we just have to wait for the entire run of 1000 records to arrive. We’re just as on the edge of our seats as you are! Note that test pressings don’t come on colored vinyl.

CDs and Cassettes


A fair amount of you must be wondering, “Hey what about those CDs and cassettes?” I’m happy to let you all know that they’re officially now in production. Since Beau Micheli did the final design layout of the LP, we decided to have him do the CD and cassette artwork as well. Note that mock-ups above aren’t 100% accurate and the tape will have a yellow shell, not a black shell. The CDs will have a digipak case. The cassettes will have Dolby B noise reduction applied, so if you have a cassette player with that capability, you’re in luck!

Turnaround time on the CDs and cassettes should be quicker than the LPs, and will likely end up being the first orders shipped.

There will be 100 copies of each format. As of now, about 40 cassettes are left.

Picture Discs: 45 RPM

And finally, we’ve officially placed the order for 250 copies of this amazing decagon-shaped picture disc. We’re also happy to announce that this picture disc is made to be played at 45 RPM, to preserve the best possible sound quality. We should be getting the test pressings for this variant very soon.

Thank you all again for the incredible amount of support. We can’t wait to get these products delivered to you.

 

Democratic Wax: Choose Needlejuice’s Back Cover

Today we sent out a mailing list message that included the projected back cover for our Poly release. Quite a few brave individuals messaged me back with a polite suggestion to change it. We went with the one we went with because it fits this brick motif we were going for, but I can see the appeal of our 2nd option (designed by the dashing and worldly Beau Micheli).

The finalization of our order form doesn’t go through until tomorrow anyway and switching the back cover is just a matter of flipping one layer to another in Photoshop. So we’re putting the decision in your hands.

#1 – simple brick

#2 – circular craziness

Which back cover should we use?
