Hey folks. A little bit of a short one for mid-week today …
< The excitement of getting a vinyl or CD wouldn’t just be for the song within the sleeve or case, right? >
While your ears are satisfied, what plays on your eyes – and your mind – as you listen?
Falling in admiration for your favourite artist that little bit more is so important, especially via a another creative medium such as photography, illustration and graphic design. It is a way of getting a visual feel of an artist opposed to the sound alone. But have we lost this in modern times? Yes, we can see a small, pixeled thumbnail of the album art via our phones on Spotify but it simply doesn’t cut the same shapes. Spotify has an average of 172 million premium subscribers…
… That’s a potential 172 million less people holding a physical piece of album artwork in their hands. Experiencing the music how it is meant to be experienced and maybe, just maybe … buying tour tickets along the way?
As an avid vinyl collector myself, I love nothing more than sitting down with a new pristine vinyl, scanning through the vinyl sleeve dimensions and vivid imaginations getting to know the artist, and their musical mindset, that little bit more: their mural to a lifelong possessive journal of being a musician.
