How we keep your records spinning.

Discover new music

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.

Score special-edition records. Icon

Score special-edition records.

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.

Swap it Out. Icon

Swap it Out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
