Record Wear

Grunge and the Beauty of Decay

The object itself, as important to the experience as the music contained within it. The ‘story’ of where it’s been, who has previously played it means we often anthropomorphise these objects, imbuing them with a life and even, a soul. That connection is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to form with digital music and, in fact, some would argue that music cannot and doesn’t exist digitally.

Why Vinyl Matters (to me)

The idea of a tangible format become less about access to the music and more about having an experience. Interacting with the music. Placing the needle. Turning the record over. Cleaning it when necessary. Storing it. It has become about curating an experience rather than an object.

White Cassette Tape

New Year, New Mission

If you want to get noticed, send me a cassette tape (or some other obscure format)! I guarantee I will sit up and take notice, especially if it’s well made, the correct length and has a great inlay or cover with your info. Even better if the inlay has a punk rock aesthetic.
