Jake DenningI know it's not very "punk" of me, but I've really been enjoying Kenny Chesney's new album, Life On A Rock. Also, I've been listening to Memphis May Fire and To The Wind quite a bit this week.
Dre OkorleyStrongly recommend Chance the Rapper (think Kendrick Lamar, Kanye, Andre 3000 and Frank Ocean wrapped all into one w reggae, gospel, old school hip hop and southern rap...or hell just listen to it because he actually has his own style) and I've been jamming to Chunk! No Captain Chunk lately cause they're just fun.

Nick has been collecting vinyl for over 20 years, and he has a few things to say to people who claim they buy vinyl because of the "warmer sound" or other similar reasons...read the full column in the replies, get mad at it or agree with it, and let your voice be heard.
