Our Daily Vinyl #7: The Young Sinclairs

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 don't know about y'all, but I'm always curious about the bands that other bands listen to. Not just the older stuff, the classics, but the new bands, the kids of today. To me, it's always rad to know that bands that you dig listen to each other. Such is the case with those adorable Diamond Center kids and the deliriously talented (and adorable) Roanoke outfit The Young Sinclairs. They're both amazing bands, and if I ever saw them on the same stage I'd probably spontaneously combust out of sheer joy. Below, Kyle explains and Brandi shows off the LP in question:

"The Young Sinclars - The Songs of The Young Sinclairs - Great record from this band from Roanoke. There must be something in the proverbial water there, because everyone I meet from Roanoke is super great and talented. So many good bands in such a small town. We've played a number of shows with them here and there, I just want to hug them."
