Spin Me right Round

January 16, 2013

I bought the Duck a record player for x-mas. 
I have to say at first I was super hesitant about the purchase since I knew that I was gonna be
 perpetually annoyed by exposed stereo equipment in my house.
but,
 I bought a fancy and sleek model and thankfully we have been listening to such great records lately that I am not all that bummed by the visual burdens that be.
Here is my top four spinners of the month…if y’all haven’t heard, take a listen!

you spin me right round baby right round like a record baby right round round round…

  1. I bought one for my husband’s birthday last year and I was a little worried for the same reasons. We have a great little closet (almost a coat closet) that sits central in the house and we have outfitted it with all of our media. The stereo, turntable, speakers (and soon those ugly and annoying cable boxes) are all stored away nicely out of sight. It may not be the crispest out there, but I just love the raw sound of a record playing over the speakers in the house.

  2. Lady- we have the same taste in music! The purity ring peeps are from here and two of them used to be in a band called Gobble Gobble. We love them and were lucky enough to catch a couple of small shows they did.
    I don’t know Wild Nothing. Will check them out, thanks.

  3. I love my record player, and my records. They are part of what makes my place feel like home for sure. What I don’t love is the Ikea Expedit, which seems to be the only shelf I can find on the market that is actually deep enough to store records without them sticking out over the edge of the shelves, and not so flimsy that it collapses under the weight of all that vinyl. Any recommendations for record storage? I’ve got several hundred and would love to have a chic, or at least neutral, way to store them.
