Lately Vinyl Me, Please has been including a flyer with details on their member store. This month’s flyer is filled with gift ideas for the holidays.

This month’s album is “The Lemon of Pink” by The Books, and as always, it’s a VMP exclusive pressing. I used to book bands and run the sound board for an experimental music venue many years ago, so I know that this is really good stuff. I’m not really into it any more, but there’s one thing I have to stress about VMP: No matter whether you love the album or not, it’s always a good one for a true collector to have. They tend to send some of the best music for every genre, but it’s not going to be your favorite every month.

The album came with this booklet, which is pretty lengthy. It goes into great detail about each track. It’s really interesting reading.

The color of this vinyl might be my favorite thing about this package this month, haha. Just look at that gorgeous and vibrant pink and yellow! I love that Vinyl Me, Please always sends gorgeous colored vinyl!

This is the artwork for the month. I think it suits the album very well. The artist is William “Zoe” FitzGerald.

This is a first for VMP… On the reverse side of the artwork is a set of instructions on how to make what I think is some DIY turntable art. It’s kind of over my head, to be honest!

vinyl-me-please-november-2016-history

On the inside of the packaging is a history of the artist and record by Jeremy Larson. It’s really informative, and I think it adds to the subscription for me, personally.

The cocktail this month is the Margo Flips. Like everything this month, it is really complex! I decided to save myself the headache and go to my bartender friend for help. She made this for me (thank you, Jen!). It definitely suits the album, it’s very different! But like the album, it’s not exactly my cup of scotch, so to speak.

Verdict: I guess after last month’s grand slam, it’s okay that I didn’t love everything about this month’s Vinyl Me, Please. I’m sure a big fan of avant-garde music and art would be completely thrilled! I do think it was especially well curated this month, and as I said, I am happy to have it anyway.

What do you think of Vinyl Me, Please?

They also offer the ability to swap your monthly selection... read more.
