February 2018 Vinyl Me, Please Review

The February album was definitely one that was a bit more experimental for my tastes – it’s an album from Ethiopian musician, Ayalew Mesfin.

Each delivery comes with a cocktail mix to accompany the music and a foreword from the Vinyl Me, Please team.

It’s also accompanied by an LP-size piece of artwork.

Ayalew Mesfin – Hasabe (My Worries)

The album represents the first-ever compilation of singles from Ayalew Mesfin and his band, Black Lion Band.

It comes with an amazing booklet that details all kinds of information about the man and the musician.

I love the swirled red look of the pressing as well. I knew I’d be up for a little experiment once I got spinning, and it was something totally different than what I’m used to. In the end, it was an interesting listen, especially when accompanied by the stories, but not one that I’ll spin again.

Verdict: Vinyl Me, Please has always had a tendency to hop around the musical spectrum – that’s one of the reasons I love subscribing – this month took me out of my typical musical zone but wasn’t my favorite. And that’s ok with me, I assume that will happen ever so often, but it’s a risk I’m ok with as long as I’m discovering new (and old!) favorites other months.
