4 out of 5 of these things came in the mail while I was in NY. #merlin #cat #hotchip #dfa #records #vinyl #USPS #mail (Taken with Instagram at Farmington Hills, MI)
Playing albums at 45rpm…
.. might be one of my favorite things. It’s not even an Alvin & Chipmunks effect usually, it’s just… funny.
These are the best:
- Pure Moods EP by Lemonade
- MMP by Animal Collective
- the Hey Boy Single by the Magic Kids (*played at 78rpm)
- Any Black Flag haaaa
Happy Record Store Day!
Tons of limited edition, re-pressed material out today, all in a effort to push extra traffic through independent record stores and keep them in the world market.
I picked up the split 7” from Sub Pop featuring new songs from Dum Dum Girls and Male Bonding. The DDG track is solid, as is Male Bonding of which I had never heard of before.
I so wanted the Beach House 12”, but I guess some peeps got there early for that one. Next year, I’ll plan an excursion.
