Record Store Viewing # 7

Now I haven’t actually seen this film yet, but from what I’ve seen on its website and in the trailer (as seen here) looks really great. It must be good, as it is apparently the official film of this year’s record store day. On that note, the official list for the RSD releases has beenContinue reading “Record Store Viewing # 7”

Record Store Viewing #6

Okay, so this isn’t exactly a post about one film, but rather one unique shop. Some cities and towns are not blessed with any physical place to buy music, let alone an independent record store. This absolute crime is and has been rectified by The Third Man Rolling Record Store. Here’s a fun ad forContinue reading “Record Store Viewing #6”

Record Store Viewing #5

This great 20 minute documentary from 2011 is about on the East Coast’s best known record shops, The Princeton Record Exchange. What’s interesting about this film is that it details how an established fixture in the vinyl world built itself from the ground up. In my opinion, this along with Scotti Records should be awardedContinue reading “Record Store Viewing #5”

Record Store Viewing #3

The film almost comes off as a relaxed visual poem, which is not exactly what one would expectContinue reading “Record Store Viewing #3”

Record Store Viewing #2

Who’s Burger Records? Who’s Burger Records?! What’s wrong with you?! Ok ok, no judging, I promise. I actually didn’t really know who BR was until I started to notice their name on a few of my albums (namely by The Go and Night Beats) and decided to look them up. After several visits to theirContinue reading “Record Store Viewing #2”

Record Store Viewing

Well folks, it’s officially 40 days until Record Store Day 2013! It’s quite easily one of the best days for collectors of records and all music in general, and is certainly my favorite day of the year . So to get extra pumped up for this year’s installment, I’m tracking down documentaries, short films, clipsContinue reading “Record Store Viewing”

Flying Saucer Attack – Land Beyond The Sun

Flying Saucer Attack Land Beyond The Sun (1994) Drag City Records 7″ Flying Saucer Attack was one of those groups that could caress you in a soft blanket of ethereal sound one minute and blast out your eardrums with wonderfully seismically droning feedback the next (for a perfect example of this, check out their masterpiece,Continue reading “Flying Saucer Attack – Land Beyond The Sun”
