I was in a #motown mood this morning. Had to put on something soulful and funky from the #maestro #williehutch to get me movin’. “(I’m Gonna) Hold On” is my JAM!!! #vinyl #vinylsoul #soulmusic #soulful #soulful_moments #vinylparadise #vinylbrotherhood #spinningrecords #33rpm #nowspinning #onmyturntable #cratedigger #cratecommunications #dustyfingers #dustygrooves #ogpress #ogvinyl
The comfort-iest of comfort food was calling my name tonight: one of my defining high school albums, a record I've listened to a billion times, where I remember every line and every twist and turn even though I haven't played it in a minute. My love for Elvis Costello is comprehensive and career-spanning, and given all the ground he's covered, he's one of the ultimate "impossible to pick a favorite album" artists but this one IMO is the closest thing to the Platonic ideal of an Elvis Costello album: it covers soul, country, rockabilly, Tin Pan Alley, and general Armed Forces-style power pop, flitting effortlessly between genres and finding him at a songwriting peak within the context of each one. And that's to say nothing of the closer "Big Sister's Clothes," one of the weirdest and most uncategorizable songs in his entire catalog. Another album that always feels like home to me. . . . #elviscostello #trust #1981 #theattractions #elviscostelloandtheattractions #stevenieve #brucethomas #petethomas #glenntilbrook #vinyligclub #vinylvisuals #instavinyl #ditc #dustyfingers #cratecommunications #cratedigger #cratedigging #igvinylclub #recordcollection #vinylcollection

☕ My sleep schedule has been janky lately - I keep waking up at like 8am on weekends, then falling back asleep and waking up again at like 1 or 2pm. So don't at me about trying to pass this off as a #morningspin because I'm well aware of how ridiculous it is. I am drinking coffee at least. I always tend to favor chill, pastoral stuff with my coffee and let's just say "Amsterdam" was calling my name this morning, for a lot of reasons. . . . #johncale #vintageviolence #1970 #adelaide #bigwhitecloud #amdterdam #garlandjeffreys #artrock #vinyligclub #vinylvisuals #instavinyl #ditc #dustyfingers #cratecommunications #cratedigger #cratedigging #igvinylclub #recordcollection #vinylcollection #ringweardontcare
Last year in my White Light/White Heat post I talked about that brief window in the late 90s when new-ish vinyl reissues were actually CHEAPER than CDs. So like I'm 14 and I'm just getting into Kraftwerk and I'm at ear X-tacy and I'm like "well I can buy the CD for $16 or I can get this weird 90s vinyl reissue for like $9". It was...a different time. So for years I was like "man I should've waited and tracked down an OG" but now it's been so long that this '93 pressing has actually accrued some character of its own. I mean, who was reissuing albums on vinyl in the US in 1993? In retrospect it's amazing it was ever that cheap, this seems logically like it should've been some European import and been super rare and valuable even then. But no, its just some plain ass Capitol purple label reissue. This probably isn't nearly as fascinating as I think it is, but I love this kind of stuff. Anyway, I got this one 19 years ago this month. One of the last records I remember buying and playing in the house I grew up in, before I moved a few weeks later. This, Republic and Depeche Mode's Ultra always remind me of that time. . . . #kraftwerk #transeuropeexpress #1977 #europeendless #thehallofmirrors #showroomdummies # #ralfhütter #florianschneider #karlbartos #wolfgangflür #vinyligclub #vinylvisuals #instavinyl #ditc #dustyfingers #cratecommunications #cratedigger #cratedigging #igvinylclub #recordcollection #vinylcollection
