This is my 89-year-old landlady lip-syncing her favorite song.
Wonderful! The power of music. (If this doesn’t make you smile, there may be something wrong with you.)
For Local Natives, the Music Begins At Home
This story was produced in partnership with FILTER Magazine.
So you’re in high school, and you have a band, and you want to play your first gig. You invite a couple hundred of your friends over to your dad’s house. What’s the worst that could happen?
You could end up with a hole kicked through your dad’s wall. You could also end up launching a world tour.
Both were the case for Taylor Rice and Ryan Hahn, the guitarist/vocalists for Los Angeles indie rock band Local Natives, who are rolling with laughter recalling that story before they head onstage during a recent stop in Brooklyn. (They perform a trio of shows at SXSW this week.) It was like “out of a movie,” they explain: kids packed inside the house and wrapped around the staircase; the crowd moshed, the cops came. Oh, and somebody kicked a hole through dad’s living room wall.
A bunch of my favorite labels, headed by @ninjatunehq came up with a very cool idea: express your interest in ordering out-of-print LP’s and when enough people want it, it gets re-pressed. Simple. Awesome. Beat Delete. Go!
Browse through our extensive list of out-of-press albums and singles. If you find something you like, make an order and once the order threshold is reached the record label will repress that product and post it straight out to you. So you can beat delete!
For all the vinyl lovers out there.
