Thrice: The Alchemy Index – Vinyl

Alchemya power or process of transforming something common into something special”

One band that has really stood out to me the past few years has been Thrice.  Especially in the past year or so with their Alchemy Index project.  They took 4 elements: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and wrote songs pertaining to them.  I know it sounds a little weird, but the songs are incredible.  They just released the 4 EP’s in a limited edition vinyl set.  They are beautifully packaged. The vinyl is colored based on which element on the album it refers to.  I don’t have much of a vinyl collection, but this is definitely a nice start.  The inside covers feature notes from the band on each song.  Each vinyl sleeve has the lyrics for each album and hand drawn style artwork.
