Hey, Let Your Honesty Shine

Nov 04, 2014 | By New Darlings


A big part of our relationship has always revolved around music.  Over the years we have created endless playlists and collected some of our favorite albums that each have a special meaning to us.  In our decade-long relationship, it’s so fun to go back to a certain year and remember what we were doing, where we were going, and what we were listening to.  It’s amazing how just a hint of a certain tune can immediately revive a memory.  There are so many songs that take us back to a particular moment in our relationship;  our autumn nights in New York with Modest Mouse, roasting marshmallows while Van Morrison plays in the background, or a warm summer drive with the windows down singing along to some early Beatles.

After dinner the other night, we took a walk to one of our favorite record shops downtown.  We still get excited flipping through countless albums and feeling that film of dust on our fingertips, which immediately makes us wonder where each of these records have been before.  This time around, we were lucky enough to find a few gems by Simon & Garfkunkel and Van Morrison.  Although the two have no relation at all, there’s something special about holding each album, one a little more weathered than the other, and feeling a bit of nostalgia set in.

  1. We’re big record collectors too and the whole process (tucking into dimly lit record shops and finding treasures that have become the soundtrack to our life together) has been so sweet!

  2. I just recently moved to Phoenix as well and am still trying to find all the hidden gem shops. I would love to know which record shop you guys visit! Thanks!*

    1. Hi Emily! Welcome to Phoenix. Our two favorite record shops are Revolver Records in Downtown Phoenix and Stinkweeds (on the corner of Central and Camelback in Phoenix).
