Play It By Ear is a new ongoing series by T&E writer Parisa where she shares musical discoveries along with informational tidbits, casual musings, and whatever other related knowledge she can pull from her rotten quarantined brain. In this special themed edition, she reflects on the poeticism of everyday life by pairing a song with a fortune from her fortune cookie collection.
For Marcos Trujillo, vinyl collection is more than a hobby, but a way to support the artists they love. "When I think about buying records from Arizona bands or trans/queer artists it feels like collecting and honoring a piece of history and communal contribution, a documentation of other peoples self-expression." For the tenth entry in the T&E vinyl vault, we talked with our friend Marcos on the repress of LA punk band The Distillers' Coral Fang with the original, explicit artwork, the romantic and raw energy on the album, as well as their overall collection and intention behind each purpose.
