My Vinyl Wish List

About three years ago Braydon and I decided we needed to buy a record player and start collecting records. I wanted to buy one second hand, but we quickly found out doing that would be hella expensive. And got one for a quick $100 from Urban Outfitters instead. Since then we've bought a few of our favorite albums, like The Black Keys' Brothers, and Alexisonfire Crisis. But with Braydon moving twice since then the player got shoved in the back of a closet and forgotten about. Until now.

The other week I convince Braydon to let me keep our record player at my place. As soon as I got the player home I instantly regretted it, as my tiny bedroom doesn't have room for it. So it sat on my desk, taking up all the room forcing me to do all my work in bed. Which was lovely for couple of days, but now I miss my desk.

The whole point behind this story is that morning I finally got around to setting up the record player and got to playing some of my records. Which got me thinking about what other albums I'd could purchase. Which in turn got me on Amazon creating a wishlist. In all honesty I don't know what record players are suddenly the coolest thing. But if it means I can find my favourite albums on vinyl then I'm not complaining.
1// My Chemical Romance I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love 2// Fall Out Boy From Under The Cork Tree 3// The Used 4// Justin Timberlake Futuresex/Lovesounds
5// Amy Winehouse Back to Black 6// Ed Sheeran X 7// The Lumineers 8// Milky Chance Sadnecessary
9// Bring Me The Horizon Sempiternal 10// Imagine Dragons Night Visions 11// Bastille Bad Blood 12// The Devil Wears Prada Zombie EP

They say your favourite bands say a lot about a person. I don't know who they are, but they definitely could say this wishlist does have a running theme. With the exception of JT and Ed Sheeran this list is very alternative. I'm drawn towards music that could be a soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic world. But I mean, my fashion sense is post-apocalyptic meets mall punk, so these albums kind of corresponds with that.

Incase you are wondering our record player is the Crosley Traveller Turntable. It works well enough, but the volume control is touchy on ours and doesn't always work. The sound quality on the built-in speakers are sub par and leaves a lot to desire. But the overall design is great. Its far from the best record player I've ever used, but it gets the job done. So at least it's got that going for it.
