Cobi, The TVD First Date

“The first record I ever owned was Bob Marley’s Kaya. The Marley records always sounded best on vinyl. You notice more richness and depth in the music because there is a perfect amount of rhythmic space. The intricacies have more value—a wider sonic plane. Kaya is still my favorite record… “Easy Skankin’” is my anthem.”

“Every once in a while, my mom would come home early from work and find my brother Josh and I in a smoke hazed room listening to all her old records. She’d be super pissed, ground us, and take away our car privileges so we couldn’t go anywhere. That led us to staying at home, listening to more records, and jamming guitar with each other. He’s actually on tour now as well. Thanks ma!

Whenever we had a chance, Josh and I would scavenge all of our family members old record collections. Zeppelin, Hendrix, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan—LOTS of Dylan. I remember the sound of the needle on the record and how different it was from cassettes and CDs. Vinyl sounded so warm and fat that it made CDs sound one-dimensional. It made me realize how special those old analog recordings were because of the deeper, more saturated tones.

When I left Minnesota, the decision to leave my records and record player wasn’t an easy one—but vinyl isn’t meant for the road. These records hold a deep meaning, and I always look forward to going home, breaking ’em back out, and enjoying the sounds of the mystics.”
