We are literally giving away Loud And Quiet’s top 5 albums of 2018 on vinyl

Because it's the most wonderful time of the year

Hey, not sure if you caught it but last week we shared the list of our favourite albums of 2018. Voted for by our contributors, you can check out the full 40-1 run down here.

The past couple of years we’ve got into the habit of giving away our top 5 albums on vinyl. This year, that means one fortunate winner will receive a package containing these records:

5. ‘Lump’ – LUMP

4. ‘Devotion’ – Tirzah

3. ‘Double Negative’ – Low

2. ‘Daytona’ – Pusha T

1. ‘Ecstatic Arrow’ – Virginia Wing

In order to enter you just need to sign up to our mailing list. We don’t spam you with stuff – we only get in touch when we’ve done something we think you’ll be genuinely interested in, like when we’ve got a new magazine or podcast to share. You can obviously leave at any time. If you’re already on our mailing list you’ll automatically be entered into the draw. Entries close at midnight on Sunday 16 December. Anyone joining the mailing list after that won’t qualify for the competition (sorry).

Good luck!

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
