Trope,
The TVD First Date

“I grew up with a turntable in my house… but funny enough, my parents never played music on it nor did they own any vinyl records. It just sat there, taunting me for many years, while we reverted to the popularly used CD player, at the time. ”

“It wasn’t until years later, as a teenager, that I went over to a good friend of mine’s house and finally, for the first time, heard music on vinyl. It was a number of records actually—Led Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, and Fleetwood Mac.

The sonics really blew my mind. The music felt physical. Tactile. Like it was there in the room with you, guiding you through this experience. It was really incredible and just brought out so much warmth and lushness in the music. Almost like it rounded the edges of the sound to this perfect shape that entered your ears.

What I also love about vinyl is that in the digital world we’re living in, it’s really refreshing to hear that there’s an audience that still opts for the physical, hard copy of music. The tactile experience still exists, and vinyl becoming cool really helped that survive.

I move around quite a bit, so I haven’t had the luxury of getting my own turntable yet, but it’s something I’d really love to get. I’d love to start building a vinyl collection of my favourite albums. I’ve got two records so far, and actually the first vinyl I ever received was a crew gift from Jason Reitman for working on his film. I still can’t play it though!

One day, I hope to play my thus far two-vinyl collection—and in the meantime, thank you so much for this feature and sharing our music!”
