KINDNESS INDIE EXCLUSIVE VINYL PREORDER WITH ONE-OF-A-KIND POLAROID INSERT – ONLY 100 MADE!

Kindness-PoonehGhana-retouched1The Record Exchange is pleased to offer a very special, limited LP for pre-order.  Adam Bainbridge (aka Kindness) brought a Polaroid 600 camera courtesy of Impossible Project on a recent round of tour dates. From LA to Barcelona, from Sweden to Berlin, he snapped away.  What he captured was random acts of Kindness. Glimpses into his creativity, personality and tour life.  And he’s sharing this series of snapshots as special, individual inserts via a very limited LP pre-order of Otherness available at select indie record stores, including the RX!
