Hear it now:
Blossom Dearie 'Blossom Dearie'
‘Blossom Dearie’ lays out Dearie’s basic mission: music that transports the listener to a room where she herself might be singing directly to them, the kind of intimate room that now feels lost to another time and place. It’s no wonder her records, with their specific yet classic sound, have become common in movie and TV soundtracks (and less glamorously, Starbucks playlists) — they’re a cheat-code for sophistication that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music

Discover new music.

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Special editions

Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Special editions
Swaps

Swap it out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
No contracts or strings. You can cancel at any time.
