Vinyl Me, Please Subscription Box Review September 2015 - album-cover

This month’s selection is Pink by Four Tet. I have heard of Four Tet in the past, but have not ever had the chance to give them a good listen before now. I’m not in love with this album. It’s nice background music.

Vinyl Me, Please Subscription Box Review September 2015 - records

This is a double album, which is always nice, and it’s that good, sturdy, 180 gram vinyl. I believe this is another exclusive VMP pressing!

Vinyl Me, Please Subscription Box Review September 2015 - art

I like the print they sent this month! It goes well with the music. It would actually make a great alternate album cover.

Vinyl Me, Please Subscription Box Review September 2015 - poem

Every month, inside the packaging is a poem or some prose by VMP’s co-founder Tyler Barstow. This is one of his better poems. I actually like this one; I think his work is growing on me as the months go on.

Vinyl Me, Please Subscription Box Review September 2015 - cocktail

Is it wrong that the thing I’m most excited about this month is this cocktail? It looks amazing! Good, fresh watermelon is everywhere right now, and I’m ready to put it to good use!

The verdict: This was not my favorite month from Vinyl Me, Please. I didn’t abjectly dislike anything, but the only thing that made me really happy inside was the cocktail recipe. That’s going to happen from time to time with a music subscription in which the same album goes out to all subscribers regardless of taste. I still think Vinyl Me, Please is a wonderful service and is always thoughtfully curated. I’m still looking forward to next month!
