A subscription based record club is a cool idea – much cooler than that “pen of the month” club your uncle keeps raving about. The only thing that could get me more excited about the idea would be if it were being championed by a couple of guys from our own backyard. Enter Vinyl Me, Please.
The Chicago based, $27 a month vinyl club offers one record delivered to your door every month, along with a custom playlist curated by your own personal music concierge. I know that money is tight, but instead of picking up yet another Radiohead LP this month, why not consider letting some new music into your life?
Vinyl Me, Please is just kicking off, and their inaugural month will feature The Way We Move, the newest LP from Langhorne Slim.
Here’s what the guys from Vinyl Me, Please had to say about their new service:
“Like a lot of people, we love music. But more than just music, we love albums. We love the stories they tell, the way they can hold their own in a fight, and how they never give a damn about what you think. And we’ve all got our favorites. The ones that say what we mean to say the best. The ones that we can’t let go of, or maybe can’t let go of us.
Remember how Ryan Adam’s Heartbreaker album felt like it was written about your life? Or how the crowd lost themselves during ‘Semi-Charmed Life’? Or the first time you heard that guy from Chi-town make ‘Jesus Walk’? They aren’t just a group of songs, they’re us and everything we’ve been through. And we started Vinyl Me, Please to bring them back in the setting we think they shine the brightest: on vinyl.
It’s simple, really. We, along with some of our favorite people in the industry, send you one incredible album on vinyl and one playlist of stuff you need to be listening to every month in exchange for your hard-earned money. We don’t take you or your cash for granted so we do everything we can to make sure that every record you get from us will either be an old favorite or will quickly become a new one.
If you love vinyl and all kinds of music then you, my friend, are home.”
