Thank you for checking out our site. We are presently celebrating our last effort, a massive 4xLP record set by the formidable The Dead C, which collects live recordings of the group over the past decade. The Twelfth Spectacle is in limited quantities and only available through mailorder in the nice packaging you see below. Additionally, we have released a handful of copies for our favorite independent record stores to sell. Those versions are in generic brown jackets and are hand-stamped and numbered to indicate which release it is. Additionally, if getting all four records seems a bit spendy to you, you can order one of the LPs from what we have left over, or even order one of the LPs in a generic sleeve for a bit of a discount. These will be available as long as supplies last. Copies start shipping in August!

Subscribers and friends of Grapefruit. We are not dead yet! We have one more amazing series to release before we stop releasing new material and focus on filling orders from our existing back catalog. But don't cry no tears, Grapefruit is going out with a bang! Our New Zealand friends in The Dead C have given us the best going away present ever, a 4xLP series called The Twelfth Spectacle. You can buy the four albums individually or purchase the whole series (trust us, you want the whole series). These will all be released at once, not every three months like we've done in the past, so shipping will be minimized. Limited to 500 copies of each record, see details on The Twelfth Spectacle below. We are taking pre-orders now!

Grapefruit is now offering a special $5 discount to anyone who orders five LPs or more! So just choose at least five albums and we will send you a $5 Paypal refund when we process your order.

Grapefruit Records is a subscription based record club founded by Simon Joyner and Ben Goldberg to release exclusive and limited, vinyl-only LPs by dedicated artists, both known and yet-to-be-known. The only qualification being that both Ben and Simon love the music. A Full-Subscription includes four quarterly released full-length LPs, all part of a series, sharing identical cover art but in different colors. Additionally, we offer the individual albums for sale but we encourage people to choose a full subscription because subscriptions spread the wealth and the fans between the better known and lesser known artists.
By selling subscriptions and individual albums directly to the public we avoid many of the expenses which make it difficult for traditional labels to make a profit. There are no promotional expenses, no distributor fees, and no returns. We only manufacture a single pressing of each release and base that pressing on the number of subscriptions we receive. We pay all the participating artists based on how many records are pressed so bands don't have to wait for their record to "break even" before they are compensated for their work. Additionally, the label's subscription-based distribution concept allows the established artists to share their audience with the lesser known artists featured on an annual roster. Grapefruit's mission is to expose fans to exclusive, challenging new music on vinyl while ensuring that the musicians actually get paid for creating their art.
