This month’s album is “How To Be A Human Being” by Glass Animals, a foursome based out of the UK. This is their sophomore effort, and it was just released on August 26 of this year! I think it’s exciting when VMP includes a new release! This album is really fun and funky, and very indie-pop. They sound a bit like Alt-J to me.

I can almost always count on VMP to send me colored vinyl, and this month was no exception. Opaque teal! I think that’s a first for me!

This is the artwork for the month. It’s a really fun pixellated version of the album artwork, which I like a lot. The artist is a collaborative team called Whoppie & Myk, and the reverse side gives quite a bit of information about the team.

Recently, Vinyl Me Please made a change from a sort of esoteric rhyming poems to a little music history on the back of the inside packaging. I couldn’t be happier, honestly! I love reading a deeper dig about the band and why the album was chosen for the month. This was written by Vinyl Me Please’s co-founder, Tyler Barstow.

The cocktail this month is the Pork Soda, which is a pineapple jalapeno margarita. It also happens to be one of my favorite cocktails already, so I definitely really enjoyed this!

This is a flyer for VMP’s member store that was included this month.

Verdict: This month was another hit for me with Vinyl Me, Please! The album was great, the cocktail was one of my favorites, and I liked the artwork this month, too. I also really appreciate the information printed inside of the packaging about the album! I am a long standing fan of Vinyl Me, Please!
