vinyl diaries

A few words about the year 2016 (and some listing..)

2016

The past year has been very tough, and I am not just talking about the death of our beloved cat. A large concern for the world’s political conflicts, wars, climate issues etc. Even though these issues affect our everyday lives, this is a blog about vinyl records & music. Let’s keep it that way.

One of the coolest things that I have noticed is the fact that more and more retailers, record companies etc. have begun to use corner-protected mailers. During the past 5-6 years I have written about packaging & shipping more than once and nowadays blog post about these issues are becoming rarer. Nice.

Other thing is that maybe I have finally realized that I can’t afford to buy every record released, even though it hurts my heart. Just want to thank STB Records & Richard Houghten for those free records, it means a lot me.

During the past year I have bought very interesting records (in my opinion) and found myself purchasing more and more records from these small, DIY companies (STB Records, DHU Records, Poisoned Mind Records, Totem Cat Records etc.). I have found myself holding treasures in my hands, crying after diamonds I have missed. It’ a life of the collector, music lover.

I do not like listing my purchases, I love every damn record I have bought but here’s a list of those records I have listened most (according to app on my phone). These are not in any particular order, these are just records I have listened more than others. Oh, outside of this list is Bloomypetal’s (Richard Houghten) seven-inch “Open Horizon” that is my favourite little one!
