You might know Andy Nelson from his work with Ceremony (on guitar or bass, depending on the day), Paint It Black or this year's LP with Dark Blue, but what isn't widely known is his commitment to vinyl and knowledge of good records. As a member of the respected R5 Productions team out of Philadelphia, Nelson's insatiable hunger is also exposed to tons of genres, from the latest hot indie darlings to the most obscuro punk band.
