Stranger Things Vol 1 Collectors Edition Vinyl Update

We could not be more excited about this Stranger Things soundtrack vinyl release. We’re updating the pre-order mock-ups with actual production vinyl photos. As we stated from the beginning mock-ups are for display purposes only.

Every hand pressed record is unique in its own way and we’re thrilled with this version for Volume 1 of the Collectors Edition which we’ve affectionately dubbed the “Demogorgon Swirl”. These photos are a much closer representation of what is actually shipping.

The hues and colors, as well as the patterns will vary from disc to disc, and side to side. It’s really hard to capture the exact look of vinyl as photos are dependent upon lighting and other factors. To help give everyone the best look at the pressing, we photographed two sets.

Honestly we’ve never, ever seen anything this cool or unique and we’ve seen A LOT of vinyl pressings.

The image on the left represents vinyl with a little more pink in the variant with the dark blue and red highlights. Both discs are front lit. The image on the right represents another set from the same pressing (also front lit) which leans more red with a slightly different pattern. The lower images on the right are of the same discs, back lit. Wow!

To see more actual photos keep checking our social media at Lakeshore Records IG and Lakeshore Loves Vinyl IG!

If our social media posts are any indication, everyone seems to be excited as we are for this Collectors Edition release on July 14th.

Stranger Things Vol 2 LP Wins Best Package Design At Communication Arts’ 58th Annual Design Competition!

Lakeshore Records congratulates Team Stranger Things and Lakeshore Art Director John Bergin on their Best Design in the Package Design category win at this year’s Communication Arts design competition!  One hundred and fifty-one projects were selected by a jury of creative professionals; 3,877 entries were submitted to the competition.

The selected projects will be reproduced in the September/October 2017 issue of Communication Arts. More than 30,000 copies of the issue will be distributed worldwide assuring important exposure to the creators and publishers of these award-winning projects.

“The goal of the LP design was to capture the 1980s aesthetic of the show, characterized by hand-drawn artwork, glowing graphic elements, and quintessential fonts of the ’80s. Heavy use of black and empty space was employed to heighten the feeling of isolation and danger experienced by the show’s protagonist, Eleven, while lost in the The Upside Down. Smokey textured vinyl also recalls the dark alternate dimension.” – John Bergin

The cultural phenomenon that is Stranger Things is now streaming exclusively on Netflix.  Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s  double GRAMMY®-nominated score on the Stranger Things Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 soundtrack vinyl (Clear with Black Smoke SOLD OUT) is available now in other vinyl variants at the Lakeshore webshop here.

Mega Drive’s Seas of Infinity Album Is Out Now on All Digital Outlets!

Mega Drive: Seas of Infinity | Lakeshore Records

Vehlinggo premieres the chilled-out, vapory “In Dreams,” my favorite cut from an album that trends toward the darker, more kinetic side of things. The first part of the instrumental number is a full-on melodic and meditative movement, culminating in an interesting surprise for the latter half. – Vehlinggo

Gear up, and prepare your ears for some ruthless synth and beats. “Godspeed Us To The Stars” is the quintessential sound we have grown to love from Mega Drive. – NewRetroWave

Lakeshore Records is pleased to release Mega Drive’s new album, “Seas Of Infinity” out now digitally on all digital outlets!  For those of you who haven’t had a chance to preview or listen to the album in full, check it out below.  “Seas of Infinity” is the first album since Mega Drive’s 2015 album, Hardwired V1.4 and 2014’s 198XAD.
