Today is Record Store Day 2014 and in recognition of that we’ve decided to break down six records that you deserve to have on vinyl. If you’re like me you’ve attained a massive collection of mp3′s, wav’s, m4a’s, FLAC, whatever it may be but for the most part, it’s still all digital. We are in the age of streaming and downloading music rather than collecting and cherishing the aesthetic value.
It’s just the way of the world these days, instead of music listening being the primary activity it has shifted to a secondary sound that we enjoy while doing other activities. Electronic music can occupy this realm, but there are artists who have crafted records that should be recognized on Record Store Day. These are records that you should drive to your records store, dig through crates to find, drive home, set the needle, listen to both sides while enjoying the album art.
