Vinyl Nation

Vinyl Nation evokes the same warm and fuzzy feeling often ascribed to listening to vinyl records. The film attempts to tackle questions such as has the return of vinyl made music fandom more inclusive or divided? What does vinyl say about our past here in the present? How has the second life of vinyl changed how we hear music and how we are listening to each other? These questions, along with the age-old query— does vinyl sound better? —encourage only nebulous responses. Still, Christopher Boone and Kevin Smokler's documentary provides an engaging journey. Visually stunning and populated with a pleasant set of talking heads who walk viewers through each stage of a record from pressing to purchase, there's a strong sense of the human element surrounding music, whether the focus is on the production or the consumption. During our America’s current discord, Vinyl Nation is a friendly reminder of this community.
