Vinyl Me, Please Features Exclusive Pressing of Too Bright by Perfume Genius, and Offering Vinyl Starter Kits for the Holidays

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2014) - Vinyl Me, Please, "the best damn record club out there," is pressing an exclusive limited edition colored vinyl of Too Bright, by Perfume Genius, for its November record of the month. Vinyl Me, Please is also introducing a starter vinyl kit as a unique holiday gift idea for anyone getting into vinyl.

Vinyl Me, Please is a record club with members in more than 40 countries. With today's unprecedented access to music, Vinyl Me, Please believes the restrictions of the vinyl format forces an environment where truly active listening can take place. Each album chosen is considered to deepen the listener's relationship with music by exposing them to work that is significant and affecting, including Too Bright, the album each member will receive in November.

"We've been following Mike Hadreas' (Perfume Genius) work for a couple of years and are drawn to the raw emotion and honesty of his music," said Matt Fiedler, Vinyl Me, Please CEO and cofounder. "Too Bright, however, is in another galaxy -- it's his PhD thesis, a powerful statement album that will outlast his career. Departing from his usual sparse, piano ballads, Too Bright has layers of instrumentation that draws on styles as diverse as David Bowie to Kanye West. A complete masterpiece from beginning to end, we think this is an essential album that will be examined for years to come."

This exclusive edition of Too Bright is accompanied by a bespoke commissioned artwork by Nick van Hofwegen, the artist known as Young & Sick, and a cocktail recipe, each inspired by the album to complete the listening experience.

"Vinyl Me, Please is not about waxing nostalgic for a time past, represented by technology that has been replaced many times since," said Vinyl Me, Please COO and cofounder, Tyler Barstow. "Vinyl Me, Please is simply about listening to music. We see the restrictions of the vinyl format as an opportunity to enjoy the process and ritual of listening to an entire album -- not as a soundtrack to your workout or your commute -- but as something that deserves your full attention and will enrich your life. Connection to music is part of being human, not musical, and Vinyl Me, Please believes every human should take some time each month to revisit that connection."

Vinyl Me, Please is also offering two vinyl starter kits as a unique holiday gift idea for people wanting to get into vinyl. The Basic Starter Kit includes a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon (DC) turntable, a Behringer Microphono PP400 pre-amp, and a 3 month membership to Vinyl Me, Please, and is priced at $499. The Complete Starter Kit includes the Basic Starter Kit plus two black Audioengine A2+ speakers, and is priced at $689. The perfect holiday gift for anyone wanting to get into vinyl, starter kits can be pre-ordered on the website today, and delivery will begin in December, in time for the holidays.
