Vinyl love: Ride “Going blank again”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

The skinny: I just got back from Toronto a few days ago, where I was visiting family and friends and celebrating the holidays. As is my new-ish tradition, I went out to the record shops a couple of days after Christmas to take advantage of the “Boxing Day” specials. Did I find anything you might ask? The answer is: Yes, I sure did! In fact, I had to put a few records back on the shelves for my next excursion! This reissue of Ride’s second album, “Going blank again”, was one of four that I held on to, each one was most definitely a necessity for my collection. This particular album was the first I had heard from Ride and is probably still my favourite by the band. All you need to do is listen to the ‘standout track’ below for an excellent reason for why it is still so relevant.

Standout track: “Leave them all behind”
