Our Daily Vinyl #2: Wooden Shjips

It is a sad but true fact of life that I once derisively mocked anyone who opined how amazing vinyl was and how music just sounded better when played on a turntable. Now, in a somewhat ironic twist of fate, I’ve come to realize, well, it’s true.

I'm not the only one with a vinyl sweet tooth, of course. Brandi Price and Kyle Harris, ringleaders of my current Favorite Band from Richmond, The Diamond Center, have a pretty rad collection of lps in their delightful abode. The pair took some time out of being purveyors of amazing music long enough to welcome me into their home and pose for some snaps with a few of their favorite vinyl things. Here, Kyle muses about some fellow psychsters and their take on traditional Christmas tunes.

"Wooden Shjips- Auld Lang Syne/O' Tannenbaum- I confess. Slightly obsessed with this band. I got this limited holiday release at the end of last year. I bought 2, gave one to a friend. After seeing them at ATP last year, I am considering following them like the Dead. (the new Moon Duo is freaking solid as well!)"
