My Record Collection by Baywaves' Carlos Sevilla (Vinyl Edition)

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their vinyl record collection are. Step up Baywaves' guitarist Carlos Sevilla. Let's see what he offers up...

 

The first LP I bought was…

"It was The Strokes - Is This It. I think I bought this one in 2008. I took it to a house party a couple of years later and left it in the garden and now it’s really bent."



The LP I’ve played more than any other is…

"I'd say Deerhunter - Microcastle / Weird Era Cont. I bought it during our first European tour in Brighton, and I play it almost every week."


The coolest cover in my collection is…

Alien Tango - Supernatural Mango. They’re a really cool band from Spain (but currently living in London!) and the cover is a fruity 35mm picture of the singer’s face.

The rarest LP I own is…

MGMT - Siberian Breaks. It’s actually not that rare, I think it was easy to find when it released on Record Store Day 2010, but I haven’t seen other copy but mine. It’s blue and black with an psychedelic etching on the b-side. Pretty beautiful if you ask me.

The strangest LP I own is…

Space Echo - The Mystery Behind the Cosmic Sound of Cabo Verde Finally Revealed! The vinyl is not strange per se but the story behind it is pretty crazy. Google it!

The last LP I bought was…

Doing it in Lagos: Boogie, Pop and Disco in 1980’s Nigeria. Our friend Arnau (💛) recommended it and I’ve been listening it on Spotify a lot and I finally bought it. Only You is going to be my song of the Summer.

The LP I can’t wait to purchase is…

C. Tangana - Avida Dollars. Spanish rappers rarely release their music on physical formats so I try to get everything from my fav artists. I’m not actually 100% sure he’s releasing it on vinyl but…

My most treasured LP is…

Pavement - Quarantine The Past. Nothing special about it, but it was a beautiful present in a beautiful moment.
