We’ve posted about Margot & The Nuclear So And So’s a few times here at Sly. For many over the last decade, this bands holds a sweet spot; even for the many that have “heard” that one song but didn’t know it was this band. I can certainly attest to the fact that they’ve been a huge part of my listening experience. I find it really cool that with JNR and Margot both being from Indiana, this collaboration bonds a strong musical history within the recent past for both band and label.

At this point, I think we all know how well JNR handles things and with this release they’re not holding back. Just take a look!

Covering the last decade, this box set comes housed in a hardbound book packaging with musical rarities from throughout 5 records.

Check out the full details below and grab one of these before they’re long gone!

“I see these 5 Margot records as one story. A weirdo who was (is) obsessed with songwriting, trying to get through his 20’s. I’m 31 now and I’m onto a new, different kind of record. But those Margot records are my 20’s. The boxset feels like an audio version of the zillion notebooks I’ve written those records in. Some of the ideas are relatively fully formed, some are just little germs. You can see the different, perhaps better, ways each album could’ve come together. Maybe it takes away a little bit from the magic, but I was always one to watch the special features on laserdiscs. Mostly though, I hope it’s the ultimate thank you to that small army of kids whose zealous love for this band have kept it going. That’s not just bullshit fan fluffury. I meet these kids, and they’re 20 and shit. These lil’ fuckers were 10 when that first record came out. Geez Louise. Anyhow, it’s a beautifully put together summation of one era of my life. I’m very grateful for all the people who shared it with me and who helped tell its story so lovingly in this set. Man oh man.”
