5 Modern Vinyl Pop Albums You Need To Own

There’s absolutely no denying it — vinyl records are cool.

Whether you love it for the quality of its crisp sound — very hipster thing to say — or because you just love the album’s cover art, there is indeed no denying its timeless coolness. Although timeless, modern vinyl pop albums are not to be exculded.

The 5 choices below are pretty solid, in no particular order, and of course, yours will be different. Enjoy.

DEV: The Night the Sun Came Up [PA] [2013]

DEV The Night The Sun Came Up

Why You Need It:

During a 2012 backstage interview with DEV, I learned that her chill, cool, calm and collected, smooth demeanor in person was equally matched with an exciting high volume energy that exudes from the speakers. The album is one to spin on fun nights. And it’s more than just getting fly like a G6.

Song To Blast:

Track 11, “In The Dark” is one to play loud… in the dark 😉

Halsey: Badlands [LP] [2015]


Why You Need It:

Halsey introduces such an eclectic array of indie-euphoria. The lyrics intertwine with her beats and usher you into a realm of colorful music. With that artsy take aside, her album, simply put, is beast!

Song To Blast:

Hold Me Down” (Side 1) and “Ghost” (Side 2). These tracks tantalize your mind with catchy lyrics.

Justin Timberlake: The 20/20 Experience [2013]

Justin Timberlake: The 20/20 Experience (2013)

Why You Need It:

JT’s triumphant re-entrance to the pop world in 2012 was a welcome return. A 2 part vinyl will cost you upwards of $50, but it might also be well worth the cost.

Song To Blast:

Suit & Tie” for starters and then place “Mirrors” on repeat… especially if you have a love interest at the moment of hitting play.

Taylor Swift: 1989 [2014]

Taylor Swift 1989

Why You Need It:

Taylor embodied the intricate idiosyncrasies of being a pop music icon, in this album. From her swift tunes, melodies, lyrics and music videos, she came into her own and crossed musical boundaries that would make even your hardest pistol gripping thug and man-bun wearing hipster alike, nod their heads like they were listening to Dr.Dre’s “Keep Their Heads Ringin”

Song To Blast:

Blank Space” takes the lion’s share of my memory from the album. The again, “Bad Blood” was a kick ass track as well (minus Kendrick Lamar’s rap portion. Sorry bro. Just wasn’t feeling it this time.)

Paramore: All We Know Is Falling [2005]

Paramore all we know is falling

Why You Need It:

Back in December of 2015, the 10-year anniversary of All We Know Is Falling’s was celebrated by Paramore by re-pressing the album on vinyl… with apparently only 4,000 pressed! How cool to own one. I blared this album in headphones during countless math tests in 2005 (responsible for several detentions) and blasted it on repeat in my truck during 2008 when starting Thronebuzz (DHN-TV’s predecessor).

Song To Blast:

Pressure” and “All We Know” for starters. This album was the richest form of nirvana that Paramore was able to produce, in my opinion.
