Last month while reading r/vinyl I ran into this post from the guy who runs 86’d Records. I was very excited about the prospect of getting a bunch of records for 86% off, the sale was basically a way to clear stock so that the label could move in it’s new direction. As you may be able to tell from my normal postings here, I’m not one who usually listens to a bunch of punk music (86’d Records’ usual genre) but I thought I’d give these records a chance given the amazing prices. For the under $30 shipped I paid I couldn’t be any more happy.
The sale gave me the opportunity to listen to some great new music I would have otherwise not went out looking for myself. Not only did I receive about a dozen records, books, etc but the label’s owner was also cool enough to throw in even more freebies. It will take me awhile to digest all of this music but so far I’m digging what I got. While many of these records are no longer carried after the sale, it is definitely worth checking out the label’s revamped website here for some new music they’re putting out!
Below is a favorite of mine from the music I’ve had a chance to check out so far:
