September 2018 Vinyl Me, Please Review

The September Essentials track featured the 2004 album Let It Die from Feist.

Vinyl Me, Please has condensed their presentation entirely into the LP – which I think has been a great transition. You’ll now get the album information along with the drink mix right on the sleeve of your gatefold.

It’s also accompanied by an LP-size piece of artwork. This month’s artwork comes from Santiago Carrasquilla.

Feist – Let It Die

Honestly, I knew of Feist but haven’t really heard too much of her work outside of whatever I had heard in passing on Sirius XMU or the popular stuff (like 1234), so I was excited to sit down and give this one a spin.

The gatefold packaging was straight-forward – a standard gatefold with a great “story of the album” on the inner gatefold – all of that along with liner notes on the LP slip. As always with Vinyl Me, Please – the gatefold and pressing are just superbly done.

As someone who came from only hearing the more popular radio type of Feist tracks – this was MUCH better than anything I had heard. It’s not too long of a listen, but both sides close with such beautiful songs – especially Lonely Lonely – that it just had a nice flow and cadence along the way.

One of the things I like the most is approaching a new piece of music (well, new to me) by listening to it on vinyl first – I like it because I’m typically paying much more attention to what I’m listening to than when I’m listening to music with the easier mediums – and this one benefitted a lot from that approach, for me.

Verdict: This is two months in a row of home runs for me – and home runs that I didn’t really expect, so I couldn’t be happier. I saw a comment online that the Essentials Vinyl Me, Please line (which is really just their original subscription offering) is kind of like the Criterion Collection for music – that seems to be pretty inline with what they’ve been doing lately.
