Original Hipsters: Your Grandparents

Looking to shop for that special music-lover in your family, and getting tired of buying iTunes gift cards?  Try vinyl records.

( @vinylmeplease )Vinyl Me, Please is a great place to start.  It’s a monthly record club that sends you a curated record each month, as well as add-on records at special pricing.

Don’t have a turntable?  U-Turn Audio ( @uturnaudio ) makes them to order.  By hand.  For $200!  With a couple powered speakers, you’re making some serious music that’s literally 3.5x better than iTunes fidelity.

Do you think vinyl is for hipsters and snobs?  Look no further than your grandparents basement.  That’s how music was consumed then, and it WILL stay that way, at least in our house.

Happy Holidays!
