Merge's dynamic customer service duoGreetings internet,

Please consider this your first update from Jay and Madonna in the Merge Records basement! We're happy to be serving you wonderful people.

First things first: to celebrate Dinosaur Jr's Bug tour, we're giving away five signed, Bug LP jackets. Comment on this post with your favorite song from the album or your favorite Dinosaur Jr show moment and retweet this blog post with the hashtag #mergebuggiveaway to win! Five winners will be chosen by a panel of experts and contacted by 6/30 when the tour is over.


In addition to the Wild Flag preorder that just went live (oh lawd there are so many of you people that want this album), we've got Stephin Merritt's Obscurities (also, 69 Love Songs, its 33 1/3 book, and the Strange Powers documentary about Stephin himself), an Archers of Loaf re-issue of Icky Mettle, from Arcade Fire, The Suburbs Deluxe, and a brand new full-length record from long time Merger, Richard Buckner. Our Blood is the first time he’s ever released vinyl!

Just because a band has graduated from Merge doesn't mean that we're not interested in helping them sell more records; we've got The Cakekitchen's Kangaroos in my Top Paddock LPs for sale, but only a few (less than 10). Merge staffers have snapped the first few of these up, so get yours from us before we don't have any more!

In case you missed them...we've got wonderfully soft and lightweight Merge Records tee shirts back in stock, in light blue. Printed on 50/50 Royal Apparel heather tees, these will keep you cool in more ways than one this summer. Be sure to admire Reed, our model / intern.

That's gonna wrap it up!

~Jay & Madonna, your Merge Records Web store customer service team. Keepers of the flame.
