If you liked Daft Punk back in middle school then you're probably gonna love this:

Daft Punk Reveal 'Random Access Memories' Vinyl

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr12u1tk_rM

"Daft Punk - Random Access Memories Unboxed!"

This article from Billboard says that "The album was recorded on a soundstage, entirely live without drum machines or loops."

But if it was recorded digitally and then transferred to vinyl with the same mastering job then why bother getting the LP, no? I got Adele's 21 on vinyl and I have to admit that the FLAC sounded better. Are there any artists from the 90's/2000's who specifically record their music for vinyl apart from CD's? I hear Nirvana's Nevermind is excellent.

P.S. I'm new to analog (got my Rega RP1 / NAD Preamp / Sakura Tube Amps / Mission speakers last Friday) :-)

Can this be true?
Vinyl sales generate more revenue than free Spotify, Youtube, and VEVO combined

I read somewhere that around 60% of young vinyl buyers do not own a turntable.
There must be a lot of record playing parties going on!
