The Clash – Sound System (Box Set)

We honestly don't remember the last time we bought a CD. With MP3s and streaming services, the end of the compact disc seems near (if it hasn't already really happened).

The Orbit Turntable

We like vinyl. The sound, the thrill of the hunt, the nostalgia (for a period we weren't alive to enjoy the first time) and the sheer cool factor of it. We're not going to pretend to understand the science of why a unipivot tonearm and an Ortofon moving magnet cartridge are better than the components in the record ... continue reading

Biographical Dictionary of Popular Music

Getting musical input from someone you don't know is a bit like asking the Internet what you should eat for dinner. You'll get an answer, sure, but there's no telling how it will fit in with your personal taste.

Moleskine Audio Cassette Notebooks

We've got a notebook for just about everything we want to keep track of. We've got a frayed stack of ones filled with old To-Do lists, we've got one or two for reviewing movies and we have plenty of suds-stained beer rating numbers that, at times, are illegible. Our next project is keeping a written record of all ... continue reading
