tbh i feel kinda sad... not because the music is bad.. its alright (eh i dunno if im picking it up personally but i get the choice, just not big on the everly brothers style sound)... but i feel there wasn't as much debate and confusion and we figured it out in a week..... its fun when we are in panic
tbh i more wish that the host didn't just immediately say its that and let us wait for them to write great reading notes and further listening (still did a good job)
Yeah, I was willing to let the madness continue until next week at least. You got @Jonathan Y to thank for that :ROFLMAO: I'm still doing the next week of clues in the what spinning thread, I had something prepared that was sorta cool.

Summer Sun was a standout the first time I ran through the album and now I think its in my top 10 songs of the year!!!! Thank you for the amazing pick @ThePakoBuelna

Really glad you all like the pick! Hope all of you enjoy the album and expect new music from them next year!

There really was no question after @Jonathan Y redirected us to look at his clue again with regards to the picture clue. It would have been pretty difficult for @ThePakoBuelna to misdirect after that.

Hence my ruin pun!

And yet another 🔥🔥🔥pick that I wouldn't have discovered if not for this forum.

Our picks have been so diverse and so cool. I really don't see the need anymore for voldemort's "curation". And by "curation" I mean, whatever album a label throws at them to hype.
Totally agree. Awesome picks.
I got two records coming this month: face melting Boris and Ruen Brothers.
Couldn't be happier

@ThePakoBuelna will come tomorrow saying that it was all a joke and things are really starting now. Then he shares a Maps position, posts a monochrome painting, says artist's hair is dark and that we won't have any other clue before the end of the month. Gool luck!

I am going to lose my shit if all of a sudden Voldemort announces an exclusive of Camaron. And then says they "discovered" it browsing through discogs one night.
I totally see that happening. Like I said, I think La Leyenda is the kind of pick Voldemort loves (aside from hyping average or well-known records). I would be kind of mad if they reissue it, but I would still encourage y’all to Tina it.

I wouldn't be that mad if they acknowledged that they got the idea from here tbh. What was infuriating with the previoux picks was the lack of credit.

BTW, I was totally unaware of the Ruen Brothers, good job @Jonathan Y! I'll stream and order it this weekend, but I totally trust Pako's taste. Like @Joe Mac said on the VMP thread, this record club is where the real curation is at.
The question is will you trust me next month 😉

Like every month to date I’m going for a genre that hasn’t yet been covered 🤔
