Stumbling Into Records
Picking random records out and listening to them solely based on their cover is a part of music intake that isn’t what it used to be. Nowadays, the relaxing nature of streaming allows us to listen to a particular record or single without ever caring too much about the cover art.
Although the streaming world has made it easier to find music, the beauty of going to a record store and purchasing a record solely based on its cover is serene in the best way possible. It could be a record that surprises you for the best or end up being one of the worst records you ever heard.
Mystery is interesting when it comes to purchasing a record, and I decided to try it myself. While at a local record store today, I decided to purchase two records solely based on their album cover, name, and genre. I had no idea who either of the artists were and both ended up being great listens. I urge you to try it sometime.
