Since the introduction of iTunes, Spotify and other streaming music programs, buying tangible albums has started to become obsolete. I am a big fan of vinyl. I love collected oldies, but I have really started buying current albums. There are some really great pieces of art on a lot of these albums, but it is also the actual vinyl that has become a hidden surprise.
I have picked a few of my favs, some I own and others on my wish list. Washed Out is first, not only are both of their albums have great design, but for their Paracosm album the vinyl is purple. I love being surprised when I see vinyl that isn’t your standard black.
