I purchased all of these records at the new and improved Experimedia.net, a distribution company and record label based in Ravenna, Ohio.
While some of these titles are newer than others, they’re all new to me; and, with the exception perhaps of Anxiety, I had no intention of buying any of them. In fact, I didn’t know they existed. It was by chance that I stopped by Experimedia.netseveral months had passed since my last visitand discovered that Jeremy Bible, its founder, had recently redesigned the site.
He did a damn good job. As I clicked on images, listened to samples, read reviews, and followed recommendations, I found myself wanting to buy everything. It took a great deal of restraint to limit myself to these seven titles. And now I find myself stopping by Experimedia.net regularly: Even if I’m not planning to purchase anything, I discover something newbands, artists, and labels from all over the world, about which I’d previously known nothing.
The shopping experience was a joyas close as it gets to actually browsing the racks and chatting with people in a bricks-and-mortar record shopand the entire transaction was smooth and painless. After my purchase, I received the following message from Experimedia:
Your order has shipped via US Postal Service. Thank you. We appreciate your support beyond words. As an independent, family-run labor of love you are absolutely essential to what we do. Any comments, questions or concerns please feel free to contact us. We would be more than happy to hear from you.
And I appreciate that. I'm a happy customer, looking forward to my next visit.
