Mexican Summer, a new boutique music label offers the latest titles by contemporary, cutting-edge artists in big, beautiful vinyl wrapped in big, beautiful album jackets. Pressed in limited runs of 500 to 1,000 copies each, Mexican Summer offers albums from acts such as Dungen, Nachtmystium, Bobby BeauSoleil & The Orkustra and others.

For those of you who just can't put your iPhones away, the service backs up every vinyl purchase with a downloadable digital version of the music so you can take it to go. With three albums released every other month, you'd best stock up on those old milk crates—your collection is about to explode. A range of subscriptions are offered, starting at $80 for four months (five albums plus exclusives). Read more...
