How It Works
Why Purchase a Subscription?
Supporting New Zealand Artists
As avid vinyl enthusiasts, we recognized the impact that vinyl has on the way we connect with and appreciate musicians. We created Restless Soul to share local artists and give back to the community.

How do I purchase a subscription for someone else?
After selecting a subscription length and continuing to the checkout, untick "Use shipping address as billing address" and enter in the address of the person you are gifting a subscription to.
When will my vinyl be shipped if I order after the 20th of the month?
If you place your order after the 20th of the month, please note that your vinyl will be scheduled for shipment in the following month. We dispatch all our vinyl orders on the 20th of each month.
What if I receive an album I don't like?
We've all bought albums we didn't dig after a first hearing, but remember you are still actively supporting the artist and the wider music industry while you grow your collection. Give it another spin and see how you go. We hope to have the ability to introduce multiple choices in the future but as we're not quite set up for this at present you will have to trust us. Just think of it like Christmas day happening once a month.
What if my album doesn't turn up?
All deliveries will be tracked and traced but if it doesn't turn up we will send a replacement as soon as possible thereafter.
Can I select a specific musical genre?
As we are fresh to the scene we don't have the logistical back up to service multiple genres. But that is the plan in the future and the more subscribers we have the sooner this option will be available.
Which artists will Restless Soul be targeting for Album of the Month?
The idea behind the subscription is to support the people who need it most, the artists. So we will initially be targeting up and coming bands who are preferably local, but the choice will vary from month to month. Get into it and make a recommendation and we will certainly consider any nomination.
Can I just buy any record without signing up to a subscription?
At this stage we are concentrating on the subscription model as we are still building our online shop. However if you have specific titles you are looking for don't hesitate to send an email request and we will see what we can do.
If I really don't like the album can I swap it?
Although we won't be able to process returns we would be very keen to enable swaps between members of the community and see no reason why this couldn't be facilitated through our existing Social Media groups.
