est. 2007 ; a fully operational offline , not-for-profit record label & production community
distributed worldwide by various conscionable independent entities ; get in touch for a great deal !
current mailing address :      Zach Phillips / OSR , PO Box 370352 , Brooklyn NY 11237-0352
OSR is gearing up to go back online as of 1/1/2016 to release 10 new
records on vinyl, cassette & CD , + a book of short stories --
more info / proper preorders forthcoming this January .

          your donation (AKA trust-fall preorder)
          would really help right now

[ gifts for your donation : for ≥$20 you get a new release of your choice ;
for ≥$50 you get four ; for ≥$100 you get one copy of all 2016 releases thru
summer ; for ≥$200 we'll invent you a reward , fiscal hero that you are . you can
redeem your preorder(s) when the new releases are announced in January .
domestic shipping included ; international shipping not included . ]

all donated funds are earmarked for production & distribution costs . I have always gladly taken a loss on the label
and will continue to ; as long as it exists , it will be run like a collection plate , on the principle that the effective
distribution of the actual music trumps even economic concern for the sustainability of the publishing organ .

unlike OSR , close "affiliate" CE Schneider Topical remains online :

"One would like to press forward, but before going farther one sees from the example of others like oneself
that this way is blocked. In such a case, if the effort to push forward is not in harmony with the time, a
reasonable and resolute man must not expose himself to a personal rebuff, but will retreat with others of
like mind. This brings good fortune, because he does not needlessly jeopardize himself."
