Our Top Vinyl Picks for May: A Mix of Classics and Contemporary Gems!

At HQ, we've been spinning some seriously good tunes lately, and we wanted to share our top picks with you. Here are four vinyl albums each that have been on repeat:

My Picks:

  1. AC/DC - Back in Black No rock collection is complete without this iconic album. From the electrifying title track to classics like "You Shook Me All Night Long," it's a powerhouse of hard rock.

  2. Tupac - Thug Life Tupac's raw lyrics and poetic storytelling shine on this record. Tracks like "Pour Out a Little Liquor" and "Cradle to the Grave" resonate just as powerfully today as they did when they were released.

  3. The Black Angels - Wilderness of Mirrors This album takes you on a psychedelic journey through layers of fuzzy guitars and hypnotic rhythms. It's a modern masterpiece that captures the essence of psych-rock.

  4. The Murder Capital - When I Have Fears With haunting vocals and intense instrumentation, this album delivers raw emotion and gritty energy. Tracks like "More Is Less" and "Green & Blue" leave a lasting impression.

Andy's Picks:

  1. Bicep - Isles A blend of electronic beats and atmospheric sounds, this album is perfect for both chilling out and getting the party started. Tracks like "Atlas" and "Apricots" showcase Bicep's versatility.

  2. Gorillaz - Cracker Island Damon Albarn's genius shines through on this eclectic album. With features from artists like Stevie Nicks and Beck, it's a sonic adventure from start to finish.

  3. The National - First Two Pages of Frankenstein With a little help from Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers and Sufjan Stevens, the US indie heroes deliver a dose of profound catharsis and their finest album in a decade.

  4. Björk - Post Björk's avant-garde pop masterpiece is a testament to her creativity and innovation. Tracks like "Hyperballad" and "Army of Me" push the boundaries of music in the best possible way.

Whether you're into classic rock, hip-hop, indie, or electronic, there's something for everyone in our vinyl collection. So grab your favourite record, kick back, and let the music take you on a journey.

Happy spinning!
