Quicksilver Daydream,
The TVD First Date

“I could see the vicious wolf snapping violently at the yellow bird as it danced circles around his head. Knives for teeth, speckled grey fur bristling with anger. Jute rope cinched tightly around his neck. On the other end, Peter, white-knuckled, holding on with all his might.”

“The thunderous roar of the kettle drum signaled the hunters arrival as Boris Karloff’s booming voice assured me that Peter and his feathered companion had been saved.

Suddenly, the speakers popped. I heard a mechanical whirr as the arm of the old record player swung into place. I was transported back to my parents living room, lying supine on the beige carpet, spellbound by the events that had just unfolded somewhere in the ether between my child-mind and the plastered ceiling.

The record was Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, Op. 67. The Vienna State Opera Orchestra conducted by Mario Rossi. Issued by Vanguard. Each character in the story is represented by a different instrument; The Bird by the flute, The Wolf by the horns, and Peter by the string quartet.

In my mind, the soft crackle of the needle tracing the vinyl grooves was the falling snow. It was better than any movie I’d ever seen; a story unrestricted by lines and colors. It was my first introduction to vinyl records. It was pure magic.”
Adam Lytle

Quicksilver Daydream’s full length release, Echoing Halls arrives in stores on June 16, 2017.
