Three years ago we started sharing our vinyl records with the world and started interacting with thousands of new friends, brands, labels and initiatives. One of the most amazing proposals we have met in these years as active members of the #igvinylcommunity has been Vinyl Moon. On a monthly basis, the @vinylmoonco crew put together a colour vinyl press with fresh new bands covering genres such as indie rock, pop, electronic, funk and more. Each month, they count on a visual artist that takes care of the jacket and other artistic aspects, shaping a premium product meant to be a crown jewel of any vinyl fan collection. We have steadily supported the initiative for more than two years, years we have been living in awe of their fantastic work and we have always pushed our limits trying to showcase their material in the most original ways on our feed. We will never be able to say enough good things about them. We love them to infinity and beyond… And we join the 50th volume celebration with a crazy slider that honors the whole moon gimmick. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Various Artists / Vinyl Moon Vol.50 - #vinylmoon #vinylrecords #vinylcollectionpost #vinyloftheday #vinylmoonco
