The movie makers behind Vinyl Nation know a lot of us love that snap, crackle, pop we hear when the needle of a record player hits the LP.
The film digs into the crates of the record resurgence in search of truths set in deep wax. It begs the questions, “Has the return of vinyl made music fandom more inclusive or divided? What does vinyl say about our past here in the present? How has the second life of vinyl changed how we hear music and how we listen to each other?”
Record Store Day would have been last weekend. Vinyl Nation was originally screened digitally online then. Small and independent record stores across the country sold tickets for that one-time viewing online. If you missed it, the link to the first look at the film is on our website pulseradio.fm. Sadly, there’s currently no release date yet. I’ll keep you up-to-date on Drive Time Live, Monday through Thursday, 3 to 5 p.m MST on 88.7 The Pulse and pulseradio.fm, as more information becomes available in the near future.
