30 dollars and the lowest shipping option is nearly 8 bucks? Fuck off once again with these prices.

 

Hopefully this starts to pop up on indie sites at a nicer price point, or at the very least with a media mail option.

Thinking back on Ixora, I think it was only ever really available via their webstore and was always $30 with close to $10 shipping. That's how I remember it at least, others can confirm or deny.

I kinda feel bad for bands that use online stores to sell their stuff that have ridiculous shipping prices...they're literally losing money from sales because of that.  Maybe they should know better?  I don't know.  It's just a shame that the one thing keeping people from buying are dumb shipping options.

You're not wrong. I'd swallow the 30 dollar pill if shipping was reasonable. It's only a couple of bucks but it's principle, and the fact that 5 extra bucks on every purchase where I "want to support the artist" by ordering from their dumb webstore adds up.

honestly as much as i love somewhat older bands making a career again, they are generally not very good at the contemporary vinyl/merch game

I agree shipping is ridiculous, but $30 isn’t bad considering it’s a double LP. I’ve definitely seen a lot of single LPS from “bigger” bands be around $30 or more recently.

Can confirm. Which is why I still don’t own Ixora.
