Joseph Damiba's Colored Vinyl Collection
I've been buying vinyl records since I was in high school, but I only recently started getting into colored vinyl.
I find that it's really satisfying to hunt down colored versions records that I actually enjoy listening to, rather than just collecting for the sake of collecting.
Here a few of the records in my collection.
I've included links to where you can buy the music on display. Please support these artists and labels so they continue to put out awesome colored vinyl!
Do you have any cool colored vinyl? I'd love to see it! Send me a message on Twitter: @jdamiba.
Apparat - LP5
Being able to see through a record is always nice. This record is somewhat translucent, which makes for a really cool effect when contrasted with your record player's platter as it spins.
Swindle - No More Normal
White vinyl will always hold a special place in my heart. Given that most records are matte black, the contrast of a vinyl pressed on a white material is a nice change of pace.
Various Artists - Pacific Breeze: Japanese City Pop, AOR, & Boogie 1976-1986
This triple-color vinyl is simply stunning- a mix of red, blue and yellow.
Elephant Gym - Balance
This record is a great example of what you can do with colored vinyl with a little creativity. Featuring a beautiful burts of green, black, and blue on a yellow platter, this record exudes the energy captured in its grooves.
Snail Mail - Lush
If you don't like red vinyl we probably won't get along. And this is the finest red vinyl you will ever see. Sunburst patterns are a theme in my collection- this one features dark splotches on the cherry red platter.
Nia Harvest - Just Like You
Pink vinyl is the bomb. This 7-inch by Nia Harvest might be my favorite record in my colelction. It's so pink I can hardly stand to look at it.
Weatherbox - The Cosmic Drama
TRANSPARENT VINYL. Enough said.
Elephant Gym - Underwater
I actually have another copy of this same record in a different color. I know, I have a problem. Send help.
GobbinJR - Ocala Wick
I mean, it's freaking ORANGE CREAMSICLE COLORED VINYL folks. Is this real life?
