Special Delivery: Vinyl Clubs

Support bands, grow your record collection, sign up for a vinyl club.

What could be better than coming home to a 13x13 media mail package shoved into your tiny mailbox? A case of wine sitting patiently next to your door I suppose, but the "It's here!" excitement or rather, the "Wait, which one is this?" brain teaser is like Christmas for vinyl lovers. Each month is a surprise with a Vinyl of the Month Club!

Several companies exist to reinvigorate the vinyl community and support new music by way of releasing limited edition pressings, packing them up with custom swag and sending them to your front door. All of these companies feature an immediate way to expand your record collection.
