Love Ghost,
The TVD First Date and Video Premiere, “24-7”

“I love the anticipation, the “chum, chum” as the turntable spins before the drop of the needle. That countdown before you hear the authenticity of the record is really exciting. With vinyl, you get an experience of being in the room of the actual recording, the analogue sound is so present, so real for me.”

“I have had great experiences at record stores as well. There used to be a store called Penny Lane in Pasadena 2 blocks from the house I grew up in. I used to go there with my Dad and shop for hours (then they moved to Upland—a sad day both my Dad and me).

At the time we did not have a record player at home, so it was mostly CDs back then, but I was always looking at the records. There is another great used record shop in Pasadena called Poo-Bah (the guy who owns it knows so much about music, it is crazy). Just holding an album in your hands is great, I love the feel of it, the weight, the size of the artwork.

When we finally got a record player, the first vinyl I bought was at a live show of a local band in Los Angeles called Tired. They and Night Talks opened up for Seahaven at the Echo. Listening to this vinyl was my sanctuary for the summer of 8th and 9th grade.

Their songs were heavy and dark—exactly the type of music I love. That was essentially my introduction to the world of vinyl and record players. The sound of the music is so warm and clear on a vinyl. Whatever stressors are in my life, I always know that I can find something authentic in music. Listening to a vinyl will drastically illuminate that authenticity of the record.”
Finnegan Bell

“24-7” is taken from Love Ghost’s full length release Lobotomy, in stores now.
