Music 101 – Record listings abbreviations. Just what does RW mean?.

Behind the Artwork

If you aren’t familiar, donewaiting.com is a pretty fantastic music site here in Columbus, OH.  They cover way more than just local music news.

Go and check out their feature “Behind the Artwork” where they discuss the new Times New Viking artwork / record.

Special thanks to Jonathan Achor for bringing this to our attention.

Vinyl Cafe – CBC Radion

The Vinyl Cafe stories are about Dave, owner of the second hand record store, and they are collected in books and on CD. The stories also feature Dave’s wife, Morley, their two children, Sam and Stephanie, and assorted friends and neighbours.

The motto of Dave’s store – and of the radio show – is “We May Not Be Big, But We’re Small”.

Definitely adding this to the office playlist.

The Air Tight Disc Flatter uses warmth and pressure to restore the flatness of LPs. An LP is centered between the marks on the Disc Flatter and the top is closed and locked. The LP is now sandwiched between two glass plates. Set the timer and low power heating elements slowly bring the LP up to the optimal flattening temperature; with heat distributed to the most commonly affected areas of the record (the label and record edges). The timer on the Disc Flatter allows for flattening times from 30Mins up to 120Mins, but in our experience, there’s no harm done to the LP no matter how long it’s in the Disc Flatter, so we routinely set it to 120Mins.

I Need That Record

I’m not sure why I’ve been so into posting these trailers, but people seem to be digging them.
That was kind of a terrible record pun there.

Anyway, plant is nearly ready to be open to the public September 1.

We’re ridiculously psyched. New site re-launch coming as well.

LA Weekly – New Vinyl Only Blog

Very exciting to see more vinyl coverage in the media.

In the unpredictable wake of music’s digital rebirth, vinyl has experienced a modest boom in popularity, seen by many (with delicious irony) as a replacement for the awkward middleman that is the compact disc. INCHES seeks not only to review the output of L.A.’s healthy vinyl community (one populated by many indies and some well-intentioned majors), but to pay dap to those who continue to tend the flame, believing that good music deserves much more than a handful of ones and zeros.
