New documentary about New York record store, Other Music, out this month

Watch the trailer for Other Music now

A documentary about legendary record store, Other Music, will be released this month.

Situated in the NoHo neighbourhood of Manhattan, New York, Other Music record store was a hub for the city's indie rock scene in the early '00s, specializing in closely curated underground, rare and experimental music.

Other Music closed their shutters in 2016, however the legacy lives on in a new film of the same name, directed and produced by Puloma Basu and Rob Hatch-Miller. The documentary will be released on the 25th August, and features contributions from Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio), William Basinski, Animal Collective, Matt Berninger (The National), Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), and more.

“It’s a story about record stores, sure, but moreover it’s about the power of community, and the changing face of our cities and towns and culture," former Other Music owner, Josh Madell, said in a press release. "The film is a joyous celebration of creativity and the people and places that matter in this life. And it feels all the more relevant today.”

You can watch the trailer for the forthcoming documentary below.

A new record store, Next Door Records, is opening in London tomorrow (12th).

In July, as part of his weekly Cabin Fever: Sunday Vinyl Session series, Carl Cox played an hour of soul, R&B, funk, reggae, soca and calypso music in tribute to his late father, Henry Carlisle Cox.
