Mexican Summer Subscription Record Club

Nothing more
irresistible than a limited edition if yer collector scum!


By Fred Mills


Mexican Summer is the name of a new vinyl and digital
label  that quietly launched last month.
The concept? Revive the notion of the “record club” – think the great Sub Pop
Singles Club, but not limited to just 7″ releases, and include links to
DRM-free downloads of the material with each platter for consumers who like
their music on the go, too. Thus far the label has made available sharp records
from Dungen, Nachtmystium and Headdress, with releases en route from Marisa
Nadler, Black Moth Super Rainbow and others.


According to the label, the records will all be “pressed in
very limited quantities and will also be available for download, bringing a
musical and visual experience to music lovers and collectors that want more
than just a tune to consume.”


The vinyl will be available on a subscription basis and at a
select group of exclusive indie retailers across the country.  Two or three records will be released every
other month in various formats – 12″, 7″, Picture Disc, etc., and all
will be “beautifully packaged, hand numbered, pressed on high quality virgin
vinyl and include a download card.” There will also be bonus gifts available
only to members, such as slip mats and tote bags.


Subscriptions are available via the website:
