Many of them are into the latest tech gadgets but also many older things like vinyl record players and old school polaroid cameras are in. What do you think causes the contradiction of both wanting the new and wanting the old at the same time that was different than the last 4T?

I couldn't say if this is a wide phenomina, my interactions with 1980s cohorts are limited to work, and in which case I'm a supervisor so I find it imprudent to socialize with with subordinates.  That said, being interested in Poloroid cameras and vinyl recordings myself (not to mention having purchased an actual Victrola) I believe that those particular cases the medium itself is "warmer" and "less sterile" than the more common digital formats.

Given the choice between listening to a clean remastering of Jelly Roll Morton or a scratchy vinyl record from the 1930s I prefer the later.

I think it's a searching for authenticity too which may be lacking. I'm into a lot of older stuff too. TheNomad says he's not seen Millennials into older music at all but I've seen it and I'm a 1986 Millennial cohort. I think this is happening because the monopolies haven't been broken down so the music today represents no one. Clear Channel owns almost everything so they've been dictating the charts more and more as they take over the radio. The music charts aren't based on what people like. They're based on whatever clear channel decides to play all the time. People don't count on the radio anymore because instead of breaking up the monopolies like we should've done, we let the monopolies conquer everything, giving a very bad taste to everything. I've known people around my age say how radio is irrelevant and how you have to search for what's good.

Of course though, the GI Generation is known for 40s music and not 30s music so it could change in the 2020s when music gets better if the monopolies are broken up.
