Record stores and music stores often sell cleaners specifically designed for use on audio materials. Check the ingredients of any cleaner that you buy to make sure that you are comfortable with everything included. Make sure to follow the directions closely as well. These cleaners are far too abrasive for records and can destroy the vinyl. Place the record on a cleaning mat. You can buy these mats at record stores and they are generally made out of cork or another soft material.
If you are worried about using liquids on top of your turntable, then a mat is a good idea. You can place the record flat on the mat and use the attached spindle to hold the record secure. Before you clean with a solution make sure that your mat can handle it. Drizzle the liquid over the record. Once you have a solution on hand, gently drizzle a few drops over the surface of the record.
Or, moisten a towel with the solution and apply this moisture to the surface of the record. You want the record to be slightly damp, definitely not drenched. Wipe with a microfiber towel.

It all adds to the heady, sensation of free-falling through the album. A feeling that the horizon has become broader. Her diary entry-like lyrics are seemingly spoken to you in confidence and trust, as well as embracing ideas of self-belief. Over the past couple of years, we've heard a lot of new indie rock bands playing charming, low-tech music like the last 10 years-- or 20, or 30 years-- never happened: Vivian Girls, Real Estate, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, etc.
Some of these bands try to take their old influences in new directions, and some don't bother. Now that I'm thinking about retro, I'm thinking about Folgers Coffee ads: Tonight, we're secretly replacing this noisy cassette-label band from the mids with something that came out last week-- let's see if people know the difference, or if they care. Trash Kit are three British girls who are single-mindedly faithful to a very specific style born in the late s: small-scale, distortion-free punk like the Slits and the Raincoats.
Guitar, bass, drums. Then using a record brush like the ones we described above, lightly wipe the discs in the direction of the grooves to clean up the soapy mixture.
