Sound City Trifecta

If you’re a lover of music, a history buff, or an engineer (or on some sort of blended journey of these) do yourself a favor and go view Dave Grohl’s Sound City. I promise you won’t regret it.

There are several themes in this loose but passionate documentary: the story of Sound City Studios, the groups that recorded there from the 1970s through the 2000s, the “feel” of musicianship and recording in a group (rather than alone with your laptop), the bitter sweet transition from analog domain to digital remix, and even a central homage to the classic¬†Neve 8028 24-track analog mixing console.

It’s available for streaming or physical purchase from the usual sources and you can stream it directly from the movie producer. ¬†Palladia music channel is carrying it (that’s where I just caught it this evening by fortunate chance).
