Vinyl Answer: Mexican Summer's Record Club

Ah, the old pleasures of vinyl records—laying that giant black disc on a turntable, gently placing the needle into the spinning grooves. It's a physical as well as a sonic experience that all you iPods and MP3s just can't match. Collecting new titles on vinyl, however, is often a chore that makes you appreciate the iTunes store even more. Thankfully, there's Mexican Summer, a boutique music label that offers the latest titles by new, cutting-edge artists in big, beautiful vinyl wrapped in big, beautiful album jackets. Pressed in limited runs of 1,000 to 500 copies each, Mexican Summer offers albums from acts such as Dungen, Nachtmystium, Bobby BeauSoleil & The Orkustra, and many others. For those of you who just can't put your iPhones away, the service backs up every vinyl purchase with a downloadable digital version of the music so you can take it to go. With three albums released every other month, you'd best stock up on those old milk crates—your collection is about to explode.
