    Post tunes that you hadn't heard before entering the record shop, but now get rinsed

    My picks:



    (blind purchase from hmv on strength of artwork/record label... must have mixed it hundreds of times by now)

    Gotta be this.......



    Couldn't believe a tune so heavy had gone under my radar. I rinse this daily.

    Dieselboy - Substance D

    Never even heard of Dieselboy before I got that, turned out to be one of the only albums I've bought and liked every song.

    I nearly always get tunes I hadnt heard before when record shopping!

    Wouldnt call them impulse buys Id call it record shopping!

    Ah well maybe I approach record shops a bit differently... in my first couple years of mixing I bought too many tunes on impulse that sounded good in the shop but not so good when I get home, so i'm a bit more careful now. Do most my research beforehand and any random buys class as impulse.
