Peter More,

“I’ve always loved having a record collection around the house. I didn’t get into collecting records until I was in high school when my mom’s friend gave me her collection from the ’60s and ’70s. I remember my dad opening the box and pulling out these original copies of Electric Ladyland, Bringing It All Back Home, and Rubber Soul, and lamenting how his whole record collection was stolen after college.”

“Until that point I didn’t realize how different the experience of playing vinyl is to tracking through a CD or shuffling an mp3 player. I find it easier to seek out obscure tracks listening to vinyl because it’s more conducive to sitting with a full album and turning it over, which is how I feel music should be. I feel we live in a very immediate culture where everything is consumed rapidly and then onto the next.

With the modern shift toward streaming singles I think it’s even curtailed the art (and caliber) of recording great LPs as well. It’s cool to see a resurgence of artists pressing records again and a return to the old days of spinning vinyl at parties and gatherings. We definitely plan to press records for our album release in the new year.

The warmth and sonic quality of playing vinyl on a good record player is always a nice change from playing music digitally. It often reminds me of how much the job of mastering has changed from back in the day, cutting the groove so the needle wouldn’t pop out. There’s something beautiful in records being analog and their crackling and imperfections over time as they age and warp.

The aesthetic is hard to beat too. I appreciate the physicality of a record and I don’t think album artwork ever comes across the same on a CD cover (let alone digitally) the way it does on a 12” sleeve. It can be convenient reading a kindle or tablet on a plane ride but it never competes with the feel or smell of flipping through old pages of a book. I feel the same way about vinyl in that it compels us to sit with the music and play it one side at a time.”
