Floppy Disks

Having lived through the 90’s, I regret to inform you all that floppy disks are coming back. I wouldn’t so much call this a comeback.

Pink Floyd

Maybe it’s about time we started demanding real new content in our lives.

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of February 2018

Khruangbin

A very average month for our list of the best selling records of February 2018 on Discogs, except for the Khruangbin record, which is amazing.

January has come and gone. What would have been an otherwise normal month was unfortunately met with the passing of Dolores O’Riordan, member of the band The Cranberries.
