Other Music has five days left: watch an MSNBC feature on the store; documentary in production
Counting today (Tuesday, June 21), great NYC record store Other Music has five days left, closing on Saturday, June 25. If you haven’t check out their Top 100 Best-Selling LPs of All Time list, it’s definitely worth scanning (and it’s been amended a bit since we first posted). MSNBC recently did a nice seven-minute feature on the store, featuring interviews with Other Music co-owner Josh Madell, as well as Marc Ribot, comedian Tim Heidecker, and actor Daniel London. You can watch that below.
Meanwhile, a feature-length documentary about Other Music, made by former OM staffer Rob Hatch-Miller and his partner Puloma Basu, is currently being filmed (if you go to the store in the next five days you could end up in it). They’re looking for archival photos, too, so if you have a picture of, say, Jeff Mangum playing in 1996, get in touch.
