When the boredom of this sweltering hot summer forced hibernation this month, I went on a scavenge for THOU vinyl. While THOU’s entire discography is available in mp3 format on their website, I still sought out any of their vinyl that was possibly available. The artwork, packaging and overall effort put into THOU’s releases is impeccable. The majority of their releases are split 12″s with fully printed artwork, liner notes and lyrics on inner jackets and more.
