Additional Order Info


We offer an Exchange Only Return Policy. We do not accept cancelations or exchanges on the following: Products benefitting charitable organizations, face masks, items tagged final run/sale, free or promotional items, any items damaged during shipping or opening, make-up, perishable goods, items washed, worn or unsealed, including vinyl/CDs that have been opened. 


Pre-ordering an album does not mean you'll receive it before the rest of the world. In fact, depending on where you live and the ship date, you may not get the album until after its official release date. All pre-order products will display an expected "SHIPS ON OR AROUND" date in the product description, which is subject to change, due to unexpected delays, beyond our control. Additional items purchased on the same ticket as a pre-order will not ship until the time specified in the description of the pre-ordered item.

Final Run

Items with the "Final Run" tag are not eligible for exchanges.  

Vinyl & Posters

Vinyl records and posters are pristine when packed. Please be aware we DO NOT issue refunds or replacements for minor cosmetic damage, such as corner dings, bends, split inserts, and so on. We pack our vinyl and posters securely and carefully in custom crafted boxes and tubes, but in some cases this type of wear is simply unavoidable during transit.

US Orders

Domestic orders take 1-2 business days to process, plus transit time.

International Orders

We ship just about everywhere. International orders take 1-2 days to process, plus transit time. Please note international shipments can often be unreliable and most delays happen at customs offices. ALL international customers are subject to the laws, duties and taxes of their destination country. Hello Merch is not responsible for any items lost, stolen or damaged during domestic transit.

USPS Media Mail

This method is offered to US customers as an old school budget service for vinyl, but highly discouraged, as it poses a greater risk for delays and damage. Hello Merch is not responsible for any items lost, stolen or damaged during domestic transit.

Let’s lay it all out on the table: this is the self-indulgent sophomore album. The horns, the female back-up singers, the songs about life on the road and redemption for indiscretions that remain vague to protect the innocent, but mostly the guilty. It’s by turns pompous, funny, overproduced, underbaked, overly serious and not serious enough. All in a good way, of course!

Heidecker & Wood are comedian/writer/actor Tim Heidecker (“Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!,” “Tim and Eric Billion Dollar Movie,” “The Comedy,” “Bridesmaids”) and his longtime musical collaborator composer/multi-instrumentalist Davin Wood (“Awesome Show,” “Billion Dollar Movie”). Some Things Never Stay The Same is the follow-up to 2011’s Starting From Nowhere and expands upon that blueprint with a little more of everything. It’s an ode to the heyday of the great 70s songwriters/studio rats – Randy Newman, Warren Zevon, Harry Nilsson, and, hell, even Boz Scaggs, to name a few. Take opener “Cocaine,” for instance, which sets one of the record’s many tones. The jaunty “Werewolves of London” riff undoes the damage done by Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long” and is probably the first truly honest depiction of the white lady in rock. From there, Tim and Davin bust out all the right tropes. Latin-ish bridge? Check - the bridge on “What Else Is New.” Rock March? Check - the end of “Getaway Man.” Blues rock rave up? Check - “Waiting For Your Call.” (Bonus Track) Pink Floyd sonic excursion? Check - “Sunday Man.” Springsteen rock gospel? Check - “Salvation Street.” But, really, there’s much more to the record than simple genre goofs. It’s chock full of catchy hooks and unabashed ringers with some of LA’s best musicians, including two cameos by Aimee Mann, guitar and vocal work from Eric Johnson (The Shins, Fruit Bats), and top-notch performances by guitarist Mike Bloom, drummers Jason Boesel and Mike Green, and more from Pierre de Reeder (Rilo Kiley).

Rock has also always been ridiculous, funny, silly, has had meaning when no meaning was intended, and no meaning when meaning was really intended. So why bother parsing or analyzing? Just sit back and enjoy Heidecker & Wood’s tasty licks, the classic AM radio melodies and the intentional/unintentional laughs. Or stand up and walk around with headphones and listen. Or ride a bike. Just make sure you’re wearing a helmet.
