Additional note : We had been in Nashville for two days at the time, and I already bought a record there. As we were traveling, and didn’t have so much space to bring records back with us, I gave myself a limit : I would just buy one record per city. I heard about this record store, The Groove, but I decided not to go because I knew I couldn’t resist to buy another one. But on this day, as we were wandering in East Nashville, looking for a place to get a coffee, a few guys having beers on their front yard starting talking to us (American people are the friendliest people I’ve met), sharing beers and some time with them. Then they offered to take us to the best place to get coffee in town : barista parlor, and on our way there, they mentioned The Groove. I understood that it was right here, so after getting one of the best coffees I tasted in my life, we all went there. As I was looking into the “local” section of the record store, I saw this album, and remembered William Tyler was from Nashville. I asked my friends if they knew about him, and the seller heard me and smiled. We started talking, and I told her we were about to go Angel Olsen at the Stone fox that night. “Oh, if you see a girl that looks just like William Tyler, that’s his sister. They own the place together”, she said. We didn’t see the girl, since the gig was sold out when we arrived there. But I left The Groove with this album and an Angel Olsen poster she offered me.
