Father/Daughter Records Launches Playable Postcard Series
With the popularity of vinyl subscription series soaring, Father/Daughter Records has launched its own project called 'Keep In Touch,' a one-year membership that gives life to the seemingly lost idea of pen pals. Dubbed 'KIT,' the project is meant to make the process of receiving music more personal -- unlike the process of downloading a song digitally.
The program is available worldwide, and each month beginning in January, subscribers will get a 7-inch postcard with a song pressed directly onto it. Yeah, you read that right.
The postcard itself can be played on your turntable. Each artist will choose their own color and cover image for their postcard. 'KIT' is only limited to 450 subscriptions for 2015, so get on this ASAP -- and if you're looking for a Christmas gift idea, you can gift a subscription as well.
Subscriptions are going for a mere $50 + postage and handling ($65 total for domestic, $90 total for international) and are available now from Father/Daughter's website right here. If you subscribe now through Sunday Dec. 21, you'll be automatically entered to win a free subscription for a friend. One winner will be chosen at random and notified on Monday Dec. 22.
So far, the full list of participants include the So So Glos, Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz, Ava Luna, Cloud Nothings, Ricky Eat Acid, Mutual Benefit, Big Ups, Into It. Over It., TOPS, Girlpool, Playlounge -- and a few surprises.
