Sunday Loves Wall of Sound

What was on the Sunday Magazine's Sunday Loves wishlist this week?
Why, the "music lovers delight" WALL of SOUND was of course!
(Thanks Meg Mason x)

And the super-smart are snapping them up for Xmas already.
(I wish I could be that organised *sigh*)


Create Design Awards 2012

The winners of the 2012 Create Design Awards were announced in the October issue of 
Desktop magazine and, proudly for me, the WALL of SOUND Gold Record 
was awarded a Highly Commended in the Print Creative category!

Considering I was delighted to just be short-listed, the extra bit of recognition made my week!

The Vinyl Frontier

Super cool article "The Vinyl Frontier" by Michael Adams in this month's Men's Style; 
about the romance of vinyl and how records are making a comeback.

"The warmth of vinyl is undeniable.... But the warmth extends beyond the sound. The physicality of records — ensuring they're clean, lowering the needle, changing sides, returning them to their covers — all requires presence of mind. If it sounds like work, it is.

But it's satisfying in a way that toggling an iPod or letting shuffle choose your music can never be. Many adult visitors to our home get a real kick out of putting a record on for the first time since CDs took over back in the early 1990s. It's the launch pad for many conversations about first albums owned and what bands were seen where and when. Records remain because people love taking about everything to do with them."

Well worth a read for any old school music enthusiasts out there.
