With the release of on-demand music subscriptions from Apple, Google and other big industry players, there's a huge shift that's happening in the way people consume and claim ownership over music. While many digital music subscription services are aimed at freeing consumers of physical CD purchases and downloads, naturally there are those who want to defy the mainstream. Vinyl Moon is one such music subscription service that does things a little bit differently with an artful oldschool twist.
With Vinyl Moon, a fee of $25 per month means that you are given a collection of curated songs from emerging artists on a tangible limited edition vinyl. This "vinyl mixtape" is also accompanied by a jacket with original artwork, making members feel more apart of a community that loves to honor art, music and records.
If the high price of this subscription service in comparison to others isn't proof enough, to verify that there is room for novel analog-inspired music services like Vinyl Moon, hundreds of people rallied to successfully fund the subscription business on Kickstarter.
