Wax & Stamp
When we were young, record stores were magical places you could spend entire afternoons just browsing. Most of the time we didn’t know what we were looking for, simply searching for a label or an artist or engineer or cover that we’d heard of or liked the look of.
With the internet, we’ve been blessed with getting all that music but instantaneously, typically for free and without having to leave the house. But what about that serendipity of finding something you’d never heard before?
What about the record that the shop owner recommends saying ‘I think you’ll love this’ or a small review stuck to the front cover makes you want to buy?
We love the internet and how it’s broken down the boundaries to what we can access, but dammit, we miss that serendipity too.
That’s where we hope Wax & Stamp can come in. Each month, you get two records. You won’t know what they are until the land on your doorstep.
