Record subscription service Vinyl Me, Please is at this point, a phenomenon. Billed as “the best damn record club,” it’s managed to make #mailday fun again, a monthly record paired with cocktail recipe, custom artwork and more. Hell, even the release announcements are anticipated and marked days for collectors.
I’ll admit: I was skeptical, at first. Why not just walk down to your local shop, hand them $25, and ask for something they think is good? Well, some of us aren’t lucky enough to have that shop, and some of us just like getting stuff in the mail.
All of that said, how the hell do they pick this stuff out? What makes this “the best damn record club”? We called up the company’s head of label relations, Cam Schaefer, and proceeded to ask him exactly that, just 10 minutes after he got home from a camping trip in the Colorado mountains.
