Vinyl Haul

Ok, so I've been away from the whole blogging sphere for a while as I've just been finding it impossible to post any content recently. Both due to copious amounts of assignments that I have due in but also because I haven't really had the chance to get out there and take any blog photos or go on any adventures and when I do have time to spare, all I ever want to do is stay in and binge watch Blue Planet. But with all that aside, today's post is one that I've been soo looking forward to sharing with you guys. Over the past month, I've been building up my record collection even more so and I thought I would share with you some of my most recent purchases so you can see whose music I'm digging at the minute and maybe get some inspo for your playlists.

Greatest Hits The Cure
Ok so as a huge fan of The Cure, I felt like I just had to have all of my favourite songs on the space of one record. Despite the fact I probably have all of the songs on various different albums by The Cure, I kinda brought this one to complete my collection but to also make it easier for when I just want to sit and listen to their classics one after the other. Definitely one of my favourite purchases of recent times.

Pills, Thrills n Bellaches The Happy Mondays
Now, The Happy Mondays, what can I say? I absolutely bloody love this album and the band as a whole! It's such a feel good album and puts you in the best mood ever to go on a night out, I cannot waittttt to see them live in December. This record gives you the best feel good days and transports you back to Summer even on the dullest and drizzly of Autumn days.

A Tonic for the Troops The Boomtown Rats
Bob Geldof you bloody genius of a human being. Once again totally classic alternative rock band from the late 70s/80s; one of my faves. Incredible.

Three Imaginary Boys The Cure
Yes, I know another album by The Cure... To be honest, this is a record that I hadn't heard of before I'd actually seen it in a record shop and I was immediately drawn in by the album cover. Its bloody pink and oh so cute for a start and I just absolutely love the artwork of it. Now considering Robert Smith wasn't impressed when they produced/released this record, I have to disagree as I absolutely love love love it.           

Pure Comedy Father John Misty
Ok stepping away from the 80s/90s and now on to some of my favourite sounds of this era. So, Father John Misty's music for me is a pretty recent discovery, I'd never heard of him until a few months ago but when I did hear his music, it blew me away. He is such an incredible artist and his lyrics are so poetic, I bloody love this man. This is honestly the perfect record to pop on if you're in your room reading or when you're getting ready in the morning with a good cup of coffee, it's honestly such a chilled and stripped back album. It's perfect for when you're having one of them days where you're doing nothing except for lying in bed reading.

Harry Styles Harry Styles
I confess I was one of those kids that was a huge One Direction fan and I also confess that Harry Styles is my absolute guilty pleasure. God do I love this man!! Honestly though, he has developed so much as an artist since leaving One Direction, his music is actual bliss. I absolutely love the way he hs drawn from inspiration from the likes of Bowie and The Rolling Stones, his music just has this amazing rock and roll Bowie-esque feel/80s vibe to it and I loveeeee it.

Something To Tell You HAIM
HAIM are my absolute favourite girl band and listening to their music just gives you the most amazing girl power feels. Such good sounds and such good vibes.

Suck It and See Arctic Monkeys
Absolute belter of an album by an absolutely classic band. What more is there to say?

The Ooz King Krule
I have a whole lotta love for this guy at the minute. I've always been a huge fan of King Krule but since his new album has been released, it's just completely brought back my love for his music. To be honest, it's very different from the music I typically listen to but his sound is so original, I think thats what I just love. Anything quirky and alternative is right up my street.

So, thats about the extent of my vinyl haul and for now, all of the records above are linked so you guys can find a little bit more about them and where you can buy them from. I hope this gives you guys some inspo to check out some of the bands mentioned above and I hope you love them all as much as I do. I'd love to hear what some of your favourite bands/records are as I'd love to check them out and hear what you guys are into!
