Beautiful Music from Ghost Buffalo

The convenience and portability of MP3s may make the them the de facto music standard, but vinyl, despite its weight and relative fragility, is making a big comeback. Maybe it's the warmer sound, the reassuring physicality of it, or maybe it's just simple nostalgia. Or maybe, just maybe it's absolutely gorgeous vinyl pressings like the new Ghost Buffalo album, The Magician, pictured above and after the jump, that are driving the process.

Not only is the cover art arresting -- all artwork looks better at LP size than it does scrunched up to fit on a CD cover -- but inside, you get this lovely slab of creamsicle vinyl, just begging to be spun over and over on lonely nights. If the music on this disc is half as beautiful as the packaging (ed note: It is), Ghost Buffalo and Suburban Home Records, who pressed the album, should have a genuine hit on its hands.
