Oh hey there. It's been a while hasn't it?

Some of you might remember our Vinyl File column from a few years ago. The column featured upcoming vinyl releases as well as spotlights on bands or labels that were doing interesting things. We're often asked where Vinyl File went. While there may be no good answer for that other than "away," we can say with certainty that it's back now.

So go ahead and click "read more" for a whole bunch of records you should consider purchasing.

If there's something you'd like to see featured on Vinyl File, please email ben (at) punknews (dot) org.
