Vinyl love: Alvvays “Alvvays”

(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.)

Artist: Alvvays
Album Title: Alvvays
Year released: 2014
Details: electric blue vinyl, 180 gram

The skinny: The highly buzzed debut by the Toronto-based indie pop five-piece, led by Molly Rankin, is worth the hype. The album sounds like something pulled from the famed C86 compilation, all jangle, noise, and sunshine.

Standout track: “Archie, marry me”
