Remember back in the day, when you could get vinyl delivered to your home thru record clubs such as Columbia House? (No? Way to make me feel old!)
With the recent surge in vinyl sales, new home delivery services have been popping up all over the internet, taking the old school idea and putting a fresh, updated twist on it.
Earlier we told you about VYNL, with it’s Netflix type service, and today we are back with yet another one…Vinyl Me, Please.
What makes Vinyl Me, Please different from VYNL, is when you subscribe ( 27.00 a month, with a price break if you sign up for 3 or 12 months ), they send you one record a month. While you do not get the options of choosing genres you listen to, Vinyl Me, Please, assures you that the record they are sending is essential to your growing collection ( In other words..you are trusting their judgement ). But the cool thing about Vinyl Me, Please is that they work with the artist and record companies, along with pressing their own records, sending out ones that often includes bonus tracks or special colored vinyl ( us vinyl collectors love our colored vinyl) , so even if you own the original record, you are getting something entirely different and limited.
Vinyl Me, Please says it is giving you a “record experience” by including special artwork and even a drinks recipe to enjoy along with your music. Along with your subscription, you also will be given access to The Standard, a weekly music digest delivered to your inbox that highlights new music and gear that can also be purchased.
In the short time that they have been in business, they have shipped out everything from Classical Jazz, to Indie Rock and to Electronic music, with artists such as Youth Lagoon, War on Drugs , Courtney Barnett and Ben Webster Quintet. We hit up the website, taking a look at February’s offering…
