Before the Music Dies



Start the morning off with this insightful documentary I caught at a screening a few years ago about the state of the music industry. Four years since the release of this documentary, it's easy to see how the Internet has served as a democratizing musical resource that's made any and every niche genre accessible for people curious and savvy enough to find it. And for those languishing behind in the digital divide, both young and old, a glorified karaoke contest reigns supreme.

In light of the growing demise of the comfy, conventional record store, a look back for those of us who once relished the effort and passion of looking for that old record smell and not the cold, odorless disposable apathy that seems to define our dour downloadable dispositions. Watch the hi-res version here.
