PROJECT: In The Vinyl Rip Over the Sea!!!

Okay, my friends…. Do you love vinyl?  Do you have a record player???  Well, I’ve got a Project for you, for all of us.  My favourite thing about vinyl is that every single listening experience is different.  My record is different then your record, my turntable is different, my speakers, my needles, how I drop the needle, when I pick it up, how quickly I flip the record, etc, etc, etc makes every single listening experience unique.

If you listen to vinyl, you know all of this… But now it’s time to show the world.

The Project I propose to you, to everyone, is to take one of the greatest records of all time, Neutral Milk Hotel’s In The Aeroplane Over The Sea and record your own vinyl experience.   No other album in recent memory has become as such a underground following and timelessness to it than this one and I couldn’t think of a better album for this project.

I don’t care how you do it, in a vaulted audiophile experience in super-Flac format, or with a shitty digital camera on video mode uploaded to youtube or something.  Play the record, record the record, and send it to me!  Let’s celebrate vinyl & share our experiences with this album with the world in what I’m calling…
