A Tumblr Blog for Hopelessly Romantic Jay Reatard Fan Types

Posted By on Wed, Oct 26, 2011 at 2:53 PM

Came across a newish tumblr blog today, this one much more charming than most. Boy meets girl in NYC, he's in a band, she considers herself well-versed in the world of indie-rock, he keeps buying records, she learns that she's not as well-versed as she thought. So they start a blog and call it My Boyfriend's Record Collection, where every day they pick a record out of said record collection, each write about it, and blindly post their thoughts before the other is able to read what they wrote. It's part diary, part Newlywed Game, part music criticism, and comes with a complementary reading playlist reeling through choice songs from each of the featured records. Since August, we've seen the likes of Born to Run, last year's Titus Andronicus album, Neutral Milk Hotel's On Avery Island, The Boy With the Arab Strap, The Cardigans, tUnE-YaRdS, The Queers, Jay Reatard... a nice mix, one that invigorates the idea that music can take on new meanings when shared with people you love or, if nothing else, a break from being cynical for at least three minutes a day while you read the latest entry. Gonna go draw some hearts on my notebook now.
