My Vinyl Collection

My Vinyl Collection

CategoriesMusic

I’m not an audiophile by any means, but I listen to a lot of music – across a lot of different genres. And over the past year or so, I’ve been gradually building my vinyl collection. Here are some of my favourites I’ve collected so far:

vinylcollection-1

My Radiohead collection is missing quite a few notable albums, but my favourites of theirs will always be Kid A and In Rainbows.

 

vinylcollection-2

The first vinyl record I bought (before I even bought a record player) – One Big Particular Loop by Polyenso. A criminally underrated band who I’d recommend to anyone interested in indie or alternative rock.

 

vinylcollection-3

Underoath’s deluxe re-issue of They’re Only Chasing Safety and Define the Great Line, released for their reunion tour in 2016. With the great design and packaging (so many die-cuts!) – and not to mention how damn-near-perfect these two albums are, this is probably the most special record in my collection.

 

vinylcollection-4

Speaking of great design and packaging, Deafheaven’s Sunbather might be my favourite album cover ever. Call it black metal/shoegaze/hipster metal/whatever you want, these are both great albums – heavy music for people who aren’t that into heavy music.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, The National is always my go-to for some slower, somber, relaxing indie rock.

 

vinylcollection-6

Braids is another criminally underrated band. Anyone interested in some electronic-leaning, experimental indie/pop should check out this Montreal trio.

 

vinylcollection-7

The latest two records from Ellie Goulding, who has my favourite voice in pop music (and who’s been my top celebrity crush since 2009).

 

vinylcollection-8

A guilty pleasure I feel absolutely no guilt listening to (Ben agrees). Carly Rae Jepson’s Emotion is sheer 80s pop perfection.

 

vinylcollection-9

Two modern classics by Kendrick Lamar. I thought 2012’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City was going to go down as the best hip hop album of this era until his follow-up, To Pimp a Butterfly, came out last year.

 

vinylcollection-10

No fan of hip hop would have a complete vinyl collection without Madvillain.
