Sarah and I are smashing beignets at Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We just left Euclid, a record store on the East side of town with a stack of vinyl and I’m suddenly struck with a realization… The reason I just had such a killer experience discovering new music is directly related to a conversation I had with my friends Ian and Jorge this last summer about coming up with a better question to ask when asking for a recommendation. Sushi, beer, food, cocktails, music… doesn’t matter. This shit works and I wish I would have known about it years ago!

Scott Farrell and Steven Williams work for Down In The Valley Record Store in Golden Valley, MN. If you’ve been following along with the podcast, you know that I’ve been falling in love with listening to music on vinyl for the first time in my life, but here’s the drop… I’m still an idiot when it comes to the subject. So, it’s no surprise that, when I met the two of them at a record store pop-up at Boom Island Brewery (and it turned out they were not only more smartest than me but crazy fun to talk too) I knew I had to get together to record a conversation.
Does vinyl ACTUALLY sound better? Doest the weight (grams) of an album influence how it sounds? How’d they personally fall in love with vinyl? Join me and the guys in the back of Down In The Valley Record Store as they answer these questions and more.
