Put Your Records On : Drift

Jeb Taylor

With a new single just released, as well as a debut EP and national tour on the way, Marley from Drift has given us five records that shaped him.

Your first album. It can be the first record/cd/tape you bought, first album you downloaded or just the first album you remember hearing that stuck with you.

This might be a cop out answer off the bat, but I can’t remember the first album I bought. What I can remember is that my first CD was a mix someone gave me of Good Charlotte and Fallout boy and 8 year old me played that shit to death in my parents car.

The album that changed your musical outlook. It can be your most influential, an album that led you down a certain path, any record that had a big and long-lasting impact on you.

This one probably was “Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To” which was the first Spacemen 3 album I got into. It embodies the Lou Reed quote of “One chord is fine. Two chords is pushing it. Three chords and you're into jazz” which allowed me to understand that music doesn’t have to be tech (even though that’s sick) to be profound.

An album that you love but is not as widely known as it should be.

“The Album Paranoia” by Ulrika Spacek

The record that drew you in with it’s visuals. It can be the cover art, a press pic of the band that made you take notice, ect.

“ENTERTAINMENT,DEATH” by Spirit of the Beehive has got one of the meanest and most fitting album covers ever. It’s probably also my favourite album of all time so I might be biased haha.

The album you are currently loving the most at the moment.

Fuck, I’ve been listening to “Mellow Gold” by Beck heaps (it has been the only CD in my car for awhile…). Such a fun album with so much going on in the best way that it doesn’t matter how many times I listen to it, for now haha.
