Fever Charm,
The TVD First Date

“I have never really been particular about what I use to listen to music. Cassettes, CDs, MP3s, anything really works to get the song across. However, there is something really enticing about holding a huge piece of art that stimulates the listener visually in addition to the sonic elements of music, and that is what I love about vinyl.”

“There are definitely memories I have listening to vinyl at my house in the Bay Area. I remember growing up and my Dad always playing lots of Grateful Dead records because he is one of those guys who has seen the Grateful Dead like 30 times. We are going to see Dead & Co. for his birthday in July, which is going to be a fun family affair.

I also remember discovering The Harder They Come on vinyl in my Dad’s collection, which has become one of my favorite albums of all time featuring Jimmy Cliff, Toots & The Maytals, and more reggae legends.

The first vinyl I ever bought was Van Lear Rose by Loretta Lynn. I remember just seeing the artwork in a record store in Nashville and there was something elusive and mysterious about the art that gave me the need to buy it. I took it home, tossed it on my pop’s old record player, and it was an amazing album. Since then, I think my favorite vinyl I’ve bought are Maxed Out On Distractions by Corners and Lonerism by Tame Impala.

The coolest part about listening to vinyl is how it can really bring people together. Some of my favorite memories are just sitting around and listening to vinyl with my family. The Doors self-titled album and Rolling Stones’ Hot Rocks 1964-1971 come to mind. In my opinion there isn’t really a better way to listen to music. I don’t think that vinyl sounds better than streaming, or vice versa. Music is music, and however anyone wants to listen to music is great.”
