Let's Get Physical: Haujobb Vinyl Redux

Posted

We've all heard this one before: vinyl sales are up. Yup, and now that Record Store Day blew the roof off the all-time vinyl sales record, nearly cracking the quarter-million mark in the one weekend alone, it seems that, at least for now, vinyl is here to stay.

We're happy that many of you are along for the ride, and, at the time of this writing, over half of the limited haujobb 2LPs have been spoken for. Not bad for a--ahem--dead market. We trust the remaining few copies will be gobbled up before long, and we really hope to release more vinyl in the future.



Announcing a haujobb vinyl sure got some strange reactions though, no stranger than the several accusations we received of jumping (or was it falling?) onto some kind of hipster bandwagon. Er... I guess. I mean, it's not as though the "scene" hasn't been releasing vinyl forever: hymen records, hands, and ad noiseam have always released vinyl, and I even own a few Cleopatra vinyls from back in the day. Didn't Possessive Blindfold release vinyl? If I remember right, too, there's a dusty Reconstriction vinyl somewhere in my collection (somewhere...).

I know of at least five **different** Daniel Myer projects that have vinyl releases, so it's pretty fair to say that haujobb was long overdue for one. Yes they are clunky and hard to carry, yes the shipping rates are depressing, and yes the corners will eventually get bent. But vinyl lovers really do have one thing going for them that hands down wins the day: passion. To the not so few people who plunked down one hundred dollars or more to order an album you already own and have it shipped half-way across the world, and to those who ordered two copies (one for the wall?): you are the coolest people on earth.
