I am starting something that I have been meaning to start for a while: Day off Record Club.
It consists of me scouring through my collection of vinyl and discovering (or rediscovering) music in its complete album form. Scratches, record sleeve, liner notes, album cover front and back, side one, side two… all of it. I want to get lost again in music.
Here’s how Day Off Record Club is going to work:
I will choose a record, any record, from my stash or from the store — something that matters to me. I’ll listen to it, and write a blog post telling you why it matters. At the end of the post, I’ll write some questions or things to think about… and then leave it open to you.
Important rule: During Day Off Record Club, we listen all the way through, no matter what — no skipping allowed — and just let the music play and help teach us, remind us, or show us something new.
Once you’ve listened, use the comments or the Day Off Record Club Twitter feed (@DayOffRecords) to tell me what you liked or didn’t like.
Day Off Record Club will launch its first selection on Sugarlandmusic.com with R.E.M.’s Murmur.
