Staff Picks: June 2021

At Victrola, we are committed to bringing lifelong music memories into every home. Our employees are passionate about music, and believe music defines our moments, pressing them into our subconscious. The warm, imperfectly perfect needle on a record transports us to those places in our individual and collective history, with a nostalgia more powerful than simple recollection.

We've curated those music memories for you, featuring a few of our employees every month. Stop by and get to know us, and perhaps take our recommendations for a spin. We're certain you'll find some music memories to share with us.

U2: War

One of the original U2 albums with awesome tracks of Sunday Bloody Sunday, Seconds and Surrender and I remember when this album was released back in the 80s as we would listen to albums over and over.

Depeche Mode:The Singles 86 > 98

This album brings together the best Depeche Mode from this timeframe which are some of my personal favorites.

Nirvana: Nevermind

Alternative rock from the 90’s reminds me when MTV used to play good videos and songs.

Coldplay: X&Y

Reminds me of a loved one who loved Coldplay and now is in heaven.

The War on Drugs: Lost In The Dream

This album is the perfect chill mood. Every time I listen to it, it has to be in full, it puts me in such a relaxed good mood. It reminds me of simpler times of hanging with my friends in college on sunny days. At the same time it puts brings up the melancholy feeling of life, a longing nostalgia lens of the past and a hopeful wish for a good future!

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti

Since I already own Led Zeppelin IV and this is my favorite full album by Led Zeppelin, I need it in my vinyl collection. As someone who plays drums, and learned out of a Led Zeppelin drum book, this album has some of my favorite songs to play to. It reminds me of those hard rocking times I spent hours on my kit. I think this is their most well rounded album (maybe besides IV).
