Thunder Body,
The TVD First Date and Premiere, “What’s Sweet About Lemons”

“Atop our piano in the living room can be found anything from The World Is Shaking, Cubanismo From The Congo 1954-55, to D’Angelo’s Black Messiah. Fresh by Sly and The Family Stone sits in regular rotation next to Leonard Cohen Live at Isle of Wight (mostly because it’s a favorite of Matt’s).”

Eastern Sounds by Yusef Lateef sounds even more wonderful than we’d realized once the vinyl was attained, and hasn’t left its perch. We aren’t exactly record collectors, but we do collect vinyl editions of our favorite recordings. MIA’s KALA got so much air time. Hearing it on vinyl was like hearing it for the first time. King Tubby, Scientist, Augustus Pablo. Very nice on vinyl. If we’re listening to music at home, it’s almost always records. Our hi-fi is our shrine.

If you wanna take several days and move heavy things around for access, ask Dennis Mariano to see his records. Like all of his pursuits, no style is left untouched. Collected by he and his wonderful wife Jenny, the catalogue is as deep as the story of their years and reflects their enthusiasm for both music and collecting. If any of this music should be lost to time, Dennis and Jenny won’t be to blame.

Jeremiah Pacheco doesn’t mind flipping 45s, and loves to grab a box when he comes by one. Many a record has been spun after many a long day on the farm. You’ll find Jeremiah playing along with reggae records, careful not to bump so hard that the record skips. What kind of reggae, you might ask? Strictly roots. One good thing about old roots records—you might not be able to hear the music it contains unless you happen to have the record.”
Matt O’Brian

Solstice, the new release from Thunder Body is in stores now via Rootfire Cooperative.
