When you’re tired of this record, you can break it up and make a cup of coffee

Most records are made out of polyvinyl chloride, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only substance which can be pressed/ molded/cut into a form that will store audio.

The band Slightly Stoopid tried to make an album out of hash resin. Experiments didn’t work that well so they just smoke the result. We could also talk about albums made out of wood or ice. Or you can have a loved one’s cremated ashes pressed into a record. Now we have an album made from coffee.

A company called Peter’s Cold Brew has a new triple-strength coffee–nicknamed “Liquid Cocaine” by some–that it’s promoting with a 12-inch record made from ground-up beans.

Described as being “blacker than black,” the record features for extreme metal tracks with titles like “Swiped Right for Dad” and “Ballad for a Dying Unicorn.”

Once you’re tired of the record, you can break it up and make a nice cup of coffee. Seriously.
