    Hey VMP homies!

    I was browsing the forums list and saw that there wasn't a thread for members of VMP in the Carolina area. So, here it is! Feel free to post whatever and connect with other vinyl junkies.

    Well right on. I stand corrected. Thought you were from Charlotte for some reason. You can trust us old, forgetful folk as far as you can throw us...

    Yup, NC born, dad was a marine was stationed at Cherry Point at the time. Except for College at Appalachian, a year in Chapel Hill (first disastrous marriage - but that's where my daughter was born - she just joined VMP - maybe she'll come hang out here occasionally), and four years in Raleigh, I've called Durham home since 1990.

    Hey, what local music is everyone into?

    Most of my local faves are of the folk/country/bluegrass variety.

    Here in Durham we have Bombadil and Rhiannon Giddens/Carolina Chocolate Drops. Mipso from Chapel Hill. We've got Chatham County Line from Raleigh. River Whyless in Asheville. Sam Beam lives in Durham now.

    Also should shout out Phonte and Big Rapper Pooh from Durham!

    I'm sure there is more I am forgetting.

    I'm a big fan of a local band in the Charlotte area called Junior Astronomers. I highly recommend that ya'll check them out if you haven't already. They have a new album coming out in July called "Body Language".

    Same with Junior Astronomers
    If you're into blackened hardcore you should checkout Funeral Chic. One of my friends does vocals for them.

    haha, YES! "Back to Then" was excellent! I also thought the two projects after that were decent as well.

    SC resident here. Greenville area. Been getting VMP albums off and on for a couple of years. Just recently started looking at the forum here.

    Cheers to all the other Carolina people.

    I've had a good time with it all around. The re-issues of wilco "AM" and MMJ "Z" got me pretty excited. And I unexpectedly really enjoyed Lapsley and Four Tet. So, it's hard to pick a favorite. pretty much all are good.

    Really like that we have the swap option now too. The only ones that I haven't been excited about are the albums I already knew about and wasn't a big fan of to begin with (Black Sabbath and fugeees). Otherwise I've really liked their selections in general.

    What have been yalls favorites?

    Cool! I've only been a member since last September for the Glass Animals release. The BBNG announcement was what got my interest into the club. My favorite so far has been a tie between Glass Animals and Main Source.
