My buddy Beebs is making a documentary about vinyl, check that shit.
Here it is, the shortened version of my upcoming full-length documentary on vinyl record culture.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.
SUMMARY: Why is it that in this new digital age, where hours, days, even months worth of music can be transported in a hardrive the size of a cellphone , that sales of something as analog as vinyl records are increasing?
Why are people buyig vinyl records again? What is their allure? Why do people still buy them? I set out to interview a wide range of people in both the DC area and my hometown of Johnstown PA to find the answer. From Record Store Owners, DJs, and Bands to Record Labels, Audio Technicians, Vinyl Enthusiasts, Collectors, and especially new vinyl buyers, I interviewed them to get their opinion on the subject.
