A new service called VYNL is launching which will offer subscribers the chance to receive albums through the post. The American-based company, who are funded via Kickstarter, will use hashtags to help subscribers form a queue, then send them three records every month based on the hashtags they chose. They will then have the option to purchase an album for $8-$12, and send back the rejects in a pre-paid carboard mailer.

A new service called VYNL is launching which will offer subscribers the chance to receive albums through the post.

The service costs $15 a month and will be rolled out across the US in March, reports Rolling Stone.

It is not the first vinyl subscription service in operation: Vinyl, Please Me costs $23 to $27 a month. It sends subscribers a record and pairs each one with a commissioned art print and cocktail recipe suited to that album’s style.
