Keep in Touch Subscription Review – April 2015
Keep in Touch is a new subscription service that sends a monthly postcard that you can play on your turntable! How unique! I was completely intrigued when I heard about this subscription, and rushed out to get a subscription for myself and my best friend.

This was the fourth mailing from Keep In Touch. After February’s mailing, I decided to stop trying to play these on my record player. They play really, really poorly, and I’m afraid they will damage my system somehow.
What I LOVE about this subscription, aside from the concept, is the artwork! This month, however, they missed the mark with me. I love the vibrant colors, and I have nothing against monsters in artwork, but the carnage is just too much for me to handle! If you love it, though, the artist is Thomas Tait.
This month’s song is “WIDIGDOTI” by Big Ups. As always, they provide a link and password for you to download the MP3. I hate to say it, but this month’s song was even more of a miss with me than the artwork! Punk is not my favorite genre, but I do like some of it. I just am not a fan of the kind of punk with screaming.
Verdict: I am pretty disappointed this month because both the music and the artwork was a miss for me, but I don’t hold it against Keep in Touch. They send a variety of songs and art from month to month, so disliking one or the other is always a chance I am taking with this subscription. This is the first month I haven’t loved the artwork, and only the second time I haven’t loved the music, so I am still quite enjoying this subscription. I think it’s also a brilliant gift subscription for any art and music lover because the price is right, it’s always a surprise, and the recipient is bound to love at least some of it.
