Ripping old records.
I love this track for many reasons (personally I think it’s just beautiful), but I’ve always been fond of the moment right at the beginning where you can hear that it’s been copied from a cassette tape. Those of us who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s can hear the slight dropout as one of the artefacts of tape slipping, and I’ve always liked it.
This rip adds to that the gentle hiss of a needle dropping onto vinyl, so you get two analogue moments for the price of one. Fantastic.
