Watch I Need That Record! The Death (or Possible Survival) of the Independent Record Store - Alternative Versions.
First of all just want to say I'm a vinyl guy. And I'm not an older
dude, I'm 28. I buy it at the local record store, and since most new
music comes with download codes, I have it digitally too. Is there a
lot of music I get online for free? Sure. But I buy a lot of the music
I own, too, because I like having the records. Feels good in the hands.
And I am a big supporter of the local record store in Phoenix, where
I live, there have been a few go under in the last few years, and there
are really only a handful of good ones left.
That said, I have a few problems with this film that really just have
to do with its perspective of change in its industry. There's a certain
nostalgia prevalent throughout the film that affects its many
interviewees, and it tries to carry an argument which at its premise is
a bit soft. One theme of the movie is that music the culture, the art
and its fans are getting less by the changes in how music is
discovered, bought, and talked about. But just as the movie geeks
didn't die out with the bricks-and-mortar video rental industry, I
really don't think music and all its subcultures have a whole lot to
The guys in the film may be glum that the emphasis is being shifted
online, but that doesn't really signal a change in what music stands
for or what we love about it. As long as bands make records, there will
still be records to buy at record stores. And we'll still be having
conversations about them in record stores, even though it's now
happening more in other places in blogs, bike shops, bars, basements,
and plenty other places that start with "b." It's moving to places that
start with other letters, too. Nothing's dying is what I'm saying, and
I have a feeling that record stores going out of business haven't fully
understood how they should integrate with the shift.
I think that rarely is something ever lost when it comes to changes in
art and culture; it's simply reinterpreted, redistributed, and enhanced
in several cases. For example, the artwork on an LP is just that
artwork. In the past, yes, it was a significant companion to the album
but putting that one single element up on a pedestal is unnecessary
today. Bands have websites, videos, posters, Twitter backgrounds,
Facebook profiles, t-shirts/stickers/DVDs/etc. Less Than Jake made
bobblehead dolls. Animal Collective even made a shoe. The bands are
fine; music will live on. You can experience a particular group in more
ways than ever before.
If this film's argument is that music will somehow lose its way during
the industry's transformation, then it seems they're simultaneously
denying the resilience of the artists they claim to understand and
champion. In the end, it really just does a good job of capturing the
tail end of a cultural corollary and the wistful ruminations of those
directly involved in its scene. A scene that yes, is shrinking, but is
very much alive elsewhere.
All that said, I'm still going to buy my music, and they'll still all
be records. Feels good in the hands.
Also: support your local record store!
