I spent the past four nights in nyc. Returning to my friends pad Thursday night, post bars, he surprised me by throwing on a wonderfully aged vinyl copy of Goose Creek Symphony’s LP Established 1970. The juxtaposition of this rural music framed by Chinatown, wafting up from a few stories below, made for an interesting cross-cultural mix.
Note: Somewhat surprisingly, you can get this album at eMusic, which while very cool, seems almost out of place, as some music just feels like it was engineered for fifty cent vinyl bins. That being said, my iPod is not complaining.
