Hi, I’m Kate Strand from the Vitals.

The records that I have been listening to most recently are:

Fugazi – Repeater (Dischord)

Dot Hacker – Inhibition (ORG Music)

Mark Lanegan Band – Blues Funeral (4AD)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Show Your Bones (Interscope)

Radiohead – Hail To The Thief (Parlophone)

I listen to them in my studio apartment in Hollywood on a cheap Crosley CR49-TAthat I bought years ago.

It resembles a suitcase, I bought it primarily because of that…and because I could afford it. It has dug itself a special place in my heart. The day I switch to what you might call a “better” player will be bitter sweet. All of the those records are albums I have listened to religiously over the years, give or take, on Cassette and or CD. Listening, enjoying and studying them in their vinyl form has been a brand new experience.

They create a tangible experience in my small space. Holding them in my hands, studying the art, carefully placing the vinyl on the player, putting them back to sleep in their paper sleeves.…it’s all part of the experience.

Live on vinyl.
