Condensed Milk: V/A - Dusty Milk Crates Vol. 1
Kids these days and their digital music boxes and iPhone jammies and fiddly winks don't know what they're missing - there is something so warm and comforting about being in a real live record store, holding a format of music that actually has enough surface area to display album art properly.
The cornerstone of that experience is the milk crate, bonus points for each layer of dust on top of it. The more dust you see, the more likely you are to find some serious hidden gems buried amongst layers of musical dreams that may have never reached fruition.
So now that you're set up and primed properly: here's Dusty Milk Crates Vol. 1, a compilation from the fine folks over at Condensed Milk that seeks to capture the vibes of vinyl shops and times not-so-forgotten. Ta-Ku, K-Saba, Willy Sunshine and a few other friends have come together to bring you into the Euro-Australian-Ohioan interpretation of the dankness of your local shop, all from the comfort of your computer viewing station.
