Vinyl Moon Volume 36 Review
Volume 36 of Vinyl Moon was entitled “Shapeshifters” and had some of the coolest artwork and mixtape tracks yet!
You’ll get this LP-sized information booklet. It’ll give you details about each artist and song you’re about to listen to – and gives you information about the graphic artist for the packaging. This is a nice little companion piece when starting your vinyl mixtape journey.
Even better – you’ll now be emailed a digital copy of the mixtape to take on-the-go – this will arrive about a week or so after you receive your record.
This is the first time I’ve hit the Vinyl Moon VIP membership! You can’t buy this, it’s only earned by being an active member who has received 12 or more monthly shipments. So far, the perks are limited to limited edition color variants of each volume – but they leave it open ended for more to come!
This month’s artwork comes from Tessa Rose Jackson – and it’s a first for the subscription, while the gatefold is pretty dang cool, the highlight were these little spinning art pieces.
They come in 3 different sizes with different artwork on each side. Pop these on your turntable to see some hypnotizing artwork – very cool, very unique.
The gatefold features shapeshifting cosmic designs!
The limited edition pressing is just beautiful! It’s a piece of art itself, especially when put in front of light…
Ok – I haven’t made my way around to the music, yet. This might have been my favorite mixtape yet, and it started with a song that is pretty well-known to the SiriusXMU crowd, Cautious Clay’s “Cold War” – and it doesn’t let up from there and rolls through a couple different genres on the way. I highly recommend this one.
Verdict: Up to this point, Vinyl Moon has always been one of my monthly highlights – now that I’ve graduated to the VIP membership, I’m even more excited about it each month! This subscription combines music and art in fun and unique ways – and the pressing itself is part of that, so to get a limited edition pressing gets me really excited.
