Amoeba Wax Museum

One of the best things about vinyl and collecting records is the cover art. While I don’t usually buy a record solely based on it’s artwork, a wall designed cover always grabs my attention. I mean, the artwork can range from straight up pictures of faces, to crazy patterns and nearly everything in between (like, seriously… how about this record I saw once at Amoeba… yup yup). Anyway, for a while Christopher was working in the Electronic section at the imfamous record store in Hollywood and while he was there, this amazing thing called #amoebawaxmuseum began to surface on Instagram.

The Miracles Club – U&Me

I’ve been loving Portland-based band, The Miracles Club, for a while now but love turned into obsession when we finally got their “A New Love” record several weeks ago and the U&Me 12″ to add to our ever-growing vinyl collection. The group’s late 80’s – early 90’s Hacienda revival, dance-inducing beats puts you into a piano-driven acid house trance – unpretentiously cool. The new video for their song “U&Me” is super fun and incredibly entertaining. All the footage from the video was crowd-sourced from fans via this video where Ryan tells fans “All you need to do is dance”  – and guess what? They D A N C E D. I really love the two dudes werkin’ it in the snow and the blonde chick dancing while her friend vogues in the background. #bestever
