Over the summer I started reading a fantastic blog– My Husband’s Stupid Record Collection. Guys, spoiler alert: She is a lady, writing about music. How unsettling! How dare she! (Just kidding, but not all of the internet took kindly to this bold crazy move).
I felt a connection with Sarah, because in addition to being charmed by her writing, we’ve both experienced the odd atmosphere of this SERIOUS boys club that is the music-industry-audiophile-vinyl-collecting world. Sense of humor intact, Sarah isn’t going to let the boys club keep her from having feelings or writing about them– she reviews music as she experiences it, which is you know, sort of the whole point of music… experience.
Anyway, this summer I wrote her a fan letter and after a few email exchanges, and a well-timed trip across the country, Sarah and I (and her husband, Alex) had the chance to meet in person over lunch. Now I can say we're internet friends and real-time friends. I interviewed Sarah on some of her favorite vinyl albums… her answers are below!
