MUST HAVE VINYL OF 2019
With Christmas around the corner, there’s no better time to start writing your wish list of must-have vinyl! With so many huge releases, limited-edition runs and cool coloured pressings, it can be hard to know where to start.
So, here are our top picks of must-have vinyl for 2019!
Lizzo | Cuz I Love You
Lizzo’s shiny, retro soul-pop smash, Cuz I Love You was one of the biggest releases of the year. The hit album recently earned her eight Grammy nominations, making her the most nominated artist of 2019! The record features guest appearances from rappers Missy Elliott and Gucci Mane and is a definite must-have. Check it out here.
Charli XCX | Charli
Charli XCX is a pop machine! Her rebellious and revealing, third studio album, Charli feature collabs with Lizzo, Christine and the Queens, Troy Sivan and more. Check out the limited edition, clear pressing here.
The Black Keys | “Let’s Rock”
The Black Keys’ “Let’s Rock” broke a five-year hiatus for the world's most famous blues-rock duo, but it was well worth the wait. Returning to their roots of guitar-driven rock, “Let’s Rock” does just that – rocks! Check out the exclusive, limited-edition pink vinyl here.
Melanie Martinez | K12
Earlier this year, Melanie Martinez released one of most ambitious projects to date with her K-12 full-length concept album and film of the same name, based in a creepy pastel boarding school. Check out the exclusive mint coloured vinyl pressing and heart-shaped vinyl single here.
Hobo Johnson | The Fall Of Hobo Johnson
Hobo Johnson’s The Fall Of Hobo Johnson was described by NME as, “a mixed bag of broken hearts, bizarre tales and awkwardly relatable moments…” Check out the very special white vinyl pressing here.
Notorious B.I.G | Ready To Die [7” Singles Box Set]
The Notorious B.I.G. helped reinvent East Coast hip-hop 25 years ago with his 1994 debut, Ready to Die. Today, the six-times platinum LP is regarded as not only one of the best hip-hop albums ever made but also one of the best albums of all time. The limited-edition individually numbered boxed set includes nine 7” 45 rpm coloured-vinyl singles (black, white and red) that feature every song from Ready to Die, PLUS two bonus tracks. Check it out here.
Foals | Everything Lost Will Not Be Saved (Pt 1 & 2)
Foals’ lavish and ambitious two-part album Everything Lost Will Not Be Saved is an epic ride of organised chaos spread across two full-length LP's. The collector’s edition picture disk pressing is a work of art and surely won’t last long! Check out the limited edition, coloured vinyl options here.
Thelma Plum | Better In Blak
Thelma Plum’s, highly-anticipated debut album, Better In Blak transforms pain and sadness into a triumph of songwriting. It really is homegrown, Aussie music at its absolute best. Get your copy on vinyl here.
Tegan & Sara | Hey, I’m Just Like You
Tegan and Sara's ninth studio album, Hey, I'm Just Like You is a co-written memoir, pieced together from lyrics the sisters wrote together between ages 15 and 17. The collection of songs and teenage travails is available on an exclusive milky white translucent vinyl and includes a track by track insert with the story behind each song. Check it out here.
