Other Music was an influential and uncompromising New York City record store that was vital to the city’s early 2000s indie music scene. But when the store is forced to close its doors due to rent increases, the homogenization of urban culture, and the shift from CDs to downloadable and streaming music, a cultural landmark is lost. Through vibrant storytelling, the documentary captures the record store’s vital role in the musical and cultural life of the city, and highlights the artists whose careers it helped launch including Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, William Basinski, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sharon Van Etten, Yo La Tengo and TV On The Radio.

“Celebrates and immortalizes the culture of the record store.” -Jen Aswad, Variety

“a loving tribute…Other Music isn’t just a requiem or eulogy; the crate-digging spirit is infectious, and it’s impossible to watch the film without jotting down records and artists to track down and queue up”- Jason Bailey, The New York Times
