tools

I can’t believe enough copies of a single Moodymann record sold in a single month to make it to this list. I assumed most copies of his releases were quietly distributed through side channels and in VIP rooms of exclusive clubs between the who’s who of dance music. Speaking of dance music, the Four Tet […]

It began about five years ago with a question with a record store owner I was visiting for work. At the time, I was riding heavy on shop and record show visits and for a glorious year or so experienced a decent percent of the United States, experiences which I am eternally grateful for. Many […]

August was a time among others. I had a totally different post for this already written out, unfortunately it got lost somehow. It was far more rantier though and it’s probably for the best to lay off the salt a bit in these trying times. There’s a lot of good releases this month, and some […]

What’s this? Arabic music? Underground 12”s? A 3” record? July clearly was a breath of fresh air. This list is chock full of amazing gems from this past summer and definitely worth digging into.

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of June 2019

June was a month. The past few months have been something of a blur for me. I vaguely remember visiting the office for planning meetings and I think I even did something else. Things have been such a blur recently that I missed most of these releases, even though I probably listened to a bunch […]

Y’all I’m Back, And They Let Me Go To Europe, Too

We replaced Fox’s coffee with Folgers Crystals on a recent trip to Europe. Let’s see if they noticed. The following is an account to some varying degree of accuracy.

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of April 2019

It’s bullshit. This is all bullshit, and you all know it. Look at it. Look at this. Reissues of reissues and barrel scrapings by faded artists of years past. It’s as if the great music of the world burnt up in some big fire and there just wasn’t enough to go around anymore. We let this […]

Ship It: A Guide To Shipping Vinyl Records

New Order! So reads the email subject. You’ve landed your first order and now comes the real work of selling records: securely packaging and mailing them. Until there’s a magical hole in which buyers can reach through the internet and grab their records from your crates, you’ll need to entrust the postal service when shipping […]

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of March 2019

My pants have a huge rip in them and the hole keepings getting worse. On the plus side, if you never leave the house like me, it doesn’t really matter that much, but the breeze is pretty strange. March was like that: a strange breeze, warm and wet during an otherwise abysmal time. I was […]
