So far, I’ve been introduced to music I would never have found otherwise. It’s been exactly what I’ve been looking for.

— Matt S. 

It’s an excellent little surprise each month and the picks have been great so far!

— Josh H. 

I really appreciate that the records have gotten more and more tailored to my tastes as I have continued with the Record Club.  I really appreciate that y’all have taken feedback and adjusted based on learning more about what I’m into!

— Jibreel P. 

It’s fun to get a nice surprise opening the bags when we collect each month’s selection! So far we have enjoyed all the picks, and they have nicely added to the diversity and depth of our collection.

— Regan T. 

Please keep doing what you’re doing! You’re thoughtful picks and hard work have not gone unnoticed.

— Simon F. 

Love the selections this month! It’s so funny–our 3-year-old is obsessed with the Pixar movie Cars and we have it on repeat with Alexa. The thing is if you don’t say the word “soundtrack” you get the Gary Numan song, so we never get to listen to it because it’s not the “right one” according to her. We’re glad to see that song on the 80’s album!
