Keepers Vinyl Record Club is a subscription vinyl record club curated by musicians. Each month a new curator selects a record from their collection and writes liners on its personal impact. A copy of the record and liners are sent to each subscriber, fostering a shared experience between the musician and subscriber.
“The twist for Keepers Vinyl Record Club is that the curators are musicians themselves, lending erudite and compelling insight. For instance, Dave Schools (bass player and founding member of Widespread Panic) writes knowingly about the intricate bass lines in 1985’s Up on the Sun by the Meat Puppets. More recently, Daniel Pujol provided a lengthy discourse on Iggy Pop’s seminal Lust for Life from 1977.” – Forbes
As easy as it is nowadays to pull up just about any piece of music on the planet, it’s the tried and true personal recommendations that still have the strongest pull for all of us. The goal of Keepers is to give musicians a platform to endorse the records they love and help vinyl lovers build a quality record collection.
