i log on to my computer, i start my iTunes, i search in the iTunes store for the latest release from my favorite band… and before i know it, i am listening to the new album.
Yet somehow i feel empty. i feel like i have somehow missed out on the part of music that now seems so… forgotten.
Gone are the days that i went to the record store at midnight, waiting in lines to get the latest release. Gone are the days that i anxiously listened to the radio in the hopes that i would hear the newest single. Gone are the days that i cracked open the plastic of a new CD and spent days and days listening to it… over and over and over again.
These days, i search, i download, i shuffle, i sync, i skip. i… i… i…
i somehow end up missing out on the magic of music. i miss having the experience. i miss having something tangible. i can’t be the only one.
Vinyl Art gives us back something that we’ve lost. It gives us back what we lost when music went digital.
The high gloss shine of the tiny grooves in the record make me giddy for the first time in years. I feel connected to the music again. I feel like I have something special. I feel satisfied I feel.
