Record Store Viewing #9

Hey there folks. With Record Store Day just around the corner, it’s getting close to wrap this little series up. Luckily for those of us interested in this sort of thing, there are countless other such documentaries & films that discuss record stores and record collecting and no blogging series could possibly collect them allContinue reading “Record Store Viewing #9”

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.

Record Store Viewing #5

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”
