7 Records to Re-vinyl-ize Your Mom's Record Collection

May 06, 2016 | Blog

(Shout to Natalia Mohl’s incredible photography- go check out her dreamy photos at wildbindi, based in Sydney, Australia! With love from a transient Melbournite.) So say you’ve gotten yourself a record player. Awesome, A+. If you’re like me and part of the dreaded “millenial” generation, when you brought this up to your parents you might have been met with a kind of confusion and bemusement. Also, probably, “Oh, I’ve got records…. somewhere.” “Somewhere” could be anywhere. In my mom’s case, we…

Music Monday - Beach House - Depression Cherry

May 02, 2016 | Music

Hello, Monday! It's the first Monday in May, and I'm still shaking the flowers out of my hair from Mayday. It's only appropriate then that today I'm listening to Beach House's dreamy 2015 album, Depression Cherry. Following 2012's Bloom, and before Thank Your Lucky Stars, also from 2015, Depression Cherry is not really an anomaly in Beach House's discography as much as it is an exploration. Bloom had a few tracks that had strains of synthesizers and trance underpinnings, but was still overall a …

Music Monday - Beck - Morning Phase

April 18, 2016 | Music

Good morning! To be fair, we’re still a bit groggy from Record Store Day. (The party lasts a while and we’re in brewing country, don’t judge us.) For sleepy Monday mornings, it seems completely appropriate to spin Beck’s 2014 album, Morning Phase. If you compare Morning Phase to, say, Modern Guilt from 2014, you’ll notice there’s a distinct lack of electric guitar, exchanged instead for gentle acoustic. It's not entirely unheard of for Beck- Morning Phase's spiritual sibling, 2002's Sea Change- …

How Big, How Bold, How Beautiful - Florence and the Machine

March 28, 2016 | Music

Even years after the triumphant Ceremonials, you couldn’t turn a stone over without hearing the soulful sound of Florence Welch belting out Dog Days one more time. It was rise of flower crowns and fire dances, and always brings to me images of the wide Australian sky filled with fading sparks. Still, it’s been four years since then, and after letting the Marina and the Diamonds of the world have a bit of the spotlight, autumn goddess Florence returns in a wave of crisp leaves and soaring vocals.…

Waxing Poetic

March 25, 2016 | Blog

Is it cotton candy? Bits of cloud? Kitten whispers? No, this is swarf. Swarf is the name for any kind of filing/chips created by carving or filing. In this case though, this swarf was made from cutting a record. Our buddy Tyler Bisson from Audio Geography came with us down to Austin for South by Southwest last week to live-cut vinyl records at Urban Outfitter's massive Space 24 Twenty.  When budding musicians ducked into the modified dressing room to record, a miniscule blade cut the tiny groov…
