“Like a lot of the better things to impact my life in a good way, I’d have to say, I was pretty late to the party as far as my love of vinyl goes. When I was younger, I was too cool for vinyl, if you can believe that.”
“After my constant whining, three or so years ago, my wife got me a little record player for Christmas. It was the greatest gift ever, but I wore that bitch out in no time!
That’s when I decided it was time to call my Dad. After all, he was still bragging about the awesome turntable he had bought back in the Stone Age, even though it had been packed away for years. It really took a lot of courage for me to ask my Dad if I could have his record player, and I’ve got to say that I wasn’t surprised that he said no—but he did say I could “borrow” it!
Sure, bands make great songs, but more importantly, bands make great albums. I love vinyl, because I’m in love with the act of listening to an album. I love to indecisively flip through my records trying to pick what’s next; I love the commitment that comes with my decision. I’m addicted, and at the rate I’m going, we’re going to have to move to accommodate my addiction. Guess I’m not as cool as I use to be.”
That’s The March Divide’s Jared Putnam from last month’s First Date, shortly after we debuted the band’s first single from their brand new LP, Music for Film. At the time we made mention of the fact that if there was to be a TVD anthem of sorts, the band’s “Still Analog” was the leading contender.
Well, now that the record is released (as of last week) and available, we have an opportunity for you to win a copy in tandem with the The March Divide’s “The Cover Story” 7″ which features the band’s covers of Radiohead’s “Creep” and the Cure’s “Love Song.”
Enter to win both the LP and 7″ by telling us in the comments how you’re “still analog.” The biggest fetishist of the bunch with a North American mailing address wins both records. We’ll choose a winner a week from today, 2/28!
