Tall Heights,
The TVD First Date

“To me, a vinyl record spinning on the turntable is like a bonfire glowing in your backyard. Once you spark it up, you have to tend to its beginning, middle, and end.”

“It creates a buzz and warmth that draws you and your friends closer, and even as it stays in that one place, it never stops moving, it never stops moving you. In this day and age, I love vinyl for slowing us down a little, for sucking us in, for giving us something that’s real to engage with and to hold onto.

My record collection tells a story of who I am as well. It’s a culmination of an inherited American tradition of music, family, friends, and touring/travel. I have my dad’s old records: Gordon Lightfoot, THE Moody Blues, Dan Fogelberg, Fleetwood Mac. I have albums inherited from friends: Stevie Wonder, Art Garfunkel, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Dire Straits.

I have albums that were gifted to me on special occasions because of their importance to me: Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bon Iver. And I have albums I found in basement record stores or on merch tables across the country: Crosby, Stills and Nash, Laura Marling, Radiohead, Paul Simon, Lord Huron, Billie Holiday, The Talking Heads, Liza Anne and so many more.

And of course all our dear friends’ amazing records: Darlingside, The Ballroom Thieves, Gregory Alan Isakov, Ben Folds, Henry Jamison, Blind Pilot, Colony House, River Whyless, Tim Baker and more I’m sure.”
