Formany of us vinyl has reemerged in recent years as being a hugely sentimental way of listening to music…romantic even. The notion of dusty stacks of vintage records hidden in a tucked away city haunt is one music lovers savoir.
If we’re to forget for a moment the ever expanding world of digital music play, vinyl and their classic legacy is at the heart of music lovers everywhere.
The Vinyl Library is a lending library which opened this week just off Stoke Newington High Street in the East End of the city, and with the remarkably cheap price tag of a £1 joining fee the store has been opened not only for us to buy records, but founders Elly Rendall and Sophie Austin have delved in to the soul of what vinyl means, creating a vintage way of sharing and reviving music in a non-profit, comfortable and genuine way.
With a monthly membership fee of £5-£10, music can be donated, cherished and enjoyed with gusto, comfort and other like minded people.
