Vinyl Unboxing | Smoke + Mirrors by Imagine Dragons

Here’s what happened this week on YouTube:

I take requests for covers on my channel! This week, I resurrected a video that I recorded forever ago and then forgot about entirely.

I did a cover of Kitchen Sink by Twenty One Pilots. But I did it at my kitchen sink. Because a kitchen sink to you is not a kitchen sink to me. Okay, friend?

I also did another vinyl unboxing this week! It’s a the clear repressing of Imagine Dragons’ sophomore album, Smoke + Mirrors, released in 2015.

If you like any of these videos, hop on over to my channel to subscribe or leave me a comment. You can talk to me about music, recommend music, ask questions, or just say hey!

Come back next week to catch up on what’s happening on my channel!

    Hey Anie,

    How are you?

    Haven’t heard from you in the in a reply for while hope everything is ok and your healthy
    I remember you were saying in a video you had some medical problems so I hope you are well.

    I was just curious, do you buy all your records online? and if so have you had any problems with physical damages in transit?

    I have stopped supporting my local record stores well until I find a better store who aren’t so judgemental and egotistic, well I have a hearing impediment and have a hearing aid in the one ear. And I always get smart arse comment and chuckle, yet in another shop, I was Judge based an artist I was looking to buy, I ask about if they had Flesh by Ruby Cube and they look it up and goes we don’t stock that hipster shi*.
    I can’t understand why A lot of audiophilia people rude to us newcomers.

    So I was wondering if this kind of stuff happening in your area? with records shops, I was speaking to a few friends and they said it was just a few bad people, not all record store are such ar******.

    it’s kind of killed the vinyl experience for me a bit cause I did like to flip through the records in stores.
    Oh yea I really like how you did the cover of Twenty One Pilots at the kitchen sink
    I was wondering if you would ever consider covering I Believe by Basic Vacation

    hope your well bye from Brendon

      Hey Brendon! I’m doing well. Been away from social media for a bit, but I’m going to slowly start to get back to it now. Thanks for asking, btw. My health is always a struggle, but for the most part, things are going pretty well. Ups and downs, but such is life. 😀

      I do pretty much buy all my records online. There are a couple record stores near where I live, but they don’t really have a great selection most of the time, and it’s harder for me to get to them due to my health struggles. I have had maybe ~10 records arrive damaged (all from the same company) and one box arrive with no record in it. But, I’ve probably ordered around 100 records online, so not bad! Also, the company that kept sending me damaged vinyl gave me a full refund, and the other company quickly sent me a replacement for the missing vinyl (though I’m sure they would’ve refunded if I had asked for that instead).

      That’s really sad to hear about your less-than-stellar experience at your local record shop. *gives side-eye to rude people who tarnish awesome spaces* Do you have any friends that are into vinyl or music in general? Whenever I *do* make trips out to local stores, I usually go with friends and make a day of it. Even if they’re not really into vinyl, they usually have fun looking through music with me and laugh at all my random trivia. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I don’t know. Other than taking backup with you to create your own positive atmosphere, I might just stick to online buying. It is a different experience though.

      That is such an awesome song, and I’ve never heard of that band before! You da best, Brendon. That’s def going on the list. *internet high five*

        Thanks so much for replying, I’m definitely gonna take your advice and take a friend the next time I go record hunting, In fact, tomorrow I’m going to go to some record shops. That a colleague had suggested it’s in suburbs that are populated with university students. and I was told that there really friendly, so fingers cross I can pick up some good albums and hopefully well I’m there can find the album (Dream Your Life Away by Vance Joy)

        Can’t wait to see your next set of discovery song blogs post.
        See you on the other side of Internet
        keep on grooving
