Let me tell you about the greatest invention. Ever.
There is a new subscription service where you can receive one to three new vinyls every month. This amazing subscription service is called Vnyl.
Here's how it works: You fill out a survey detailing your musical tastes. You can list what artists you love, which artists you hate, what you're looking for, if you want to steer from what you usually listen to, and much more. You can also link your Spotify or SoundCloud accounts to show what you listen to. This helps your account manager to find records you like. You also need to choose a "vibe." I didn't realize I needed to choose a vibe in order for my order to be processed until a week after I made an account and filled out all of my information. Make sure you do this otherwise it will delay when you will receive your Vnyl.
You can choose different packages for your monthly Vnyls: The Solo Package: One record per month for $22 The Trio Package: Three records per month for $39 The Triple Triple Package: Nine records for three months for $37 The #BFF Package: Thirty-six records per year for $35
I chose the Trio Package and was absolutely in love with what they sent me. It took about a month to receive my Vnyl, but it was completely worth it. Vnyl sent me three records of bands I did not know, but I absolutely love all the records.
I received: Doug Paisley - Golden Embers Fool's Gold - Flying Lessons Day At the Fair - The Rocking Chair Years
My first package was amazing and I will definitely use this service in the future. The great thing about most subscription services is you can pause your subscription if you decide you cannot / do not need your subscription for the month. Mine is currently on hold because I have quite a bit going on for the next couple of months. However, I look forward to unpausing my service to get more awesome vinyls!
Vnyl also sends nifty cards like this to tell you about your package:
