|Experiment: 1 Random LP per Month|
Hey fellow sput users! I thought: Why not get away from the path dependancy of the music I know and set some completely new seeds aside from recommendations etc.? So my plan is to buy one LP (if I'm feeling fancy or rich or both maybe more) randomly out of the 1) used, 2) reduced because of cover damage or 3) new arrivals section. Maybe I will visit some certain genre sections from time to time but I want to focus on those 3 sections mentioned above because they are the most mixed in my local record store.
Furthermore I wanted to post those records, a short summary and my initial rating on this list.
Has anyone of you experience in such a experiment and can give me some useful hints? If everything runs according to plan, I will probably start in June.
Just a place holder. But nevertheless a really good album even though some of the songs got already released on B-Sides & Rarities. One of my favourite records by them because of the consistency and the flow.
June 2019: What a lucky pick! It was in a section "50% off because of slight cover damages", had a cool cover, some sweet name and I have never heard of it. Turns out that they were kinda successful back then. Damn this album rocks. However, I cannot think of something familiar. If you happen to know similar stuff, please rec!
A Long Time Listening
Juli 2019: God, I love my record store. Again, it was found in the "50% off" section. I don't know why I bought this, but something was telling me that it's got a style I dig...and damn my feeling was right. Right in the first seconds I had to think of Leprous but this LP is so much more than a good copy of Leprous. It is amazing how versatile these guys are. Such a jackpot. I am on a hot streak.
August 2019: Okay, basically this was September, but I don't care. Anyway, this release is weird and interesting. I was not blown away by it like I was with the previous two but rather surprised by the strange kind of this mix between trip-hop, classical, chanson, electronical music, old school hip hop and so much more. I can not describe this properly, check out the review. It is definitely sweet to broaden your horizon.
|After checking your ratings, I'd rec you to check Ulver!|
Or buy random albums which have cool cover art, don't look the titles or band name, just the cover if you like it or not. I did this before, and I was very glad with the results.
|finally added the first one. The cover + the album name did it. Not what I was expecting, but damn I am glad that I found this. |
|And again I was lucky af|
