Nostalgia for vinyl and a project we loved hit hard today with Amoeba announcing their vinyl vault.
Amoeba were one of 40 of the worlds best indie record stores we worked with a few years back to launch Nokia Music Recommenders. A quite brilliant 'ahead of its time' curation platform that took recommendations from the guys and girls who have given up 'normal' lives to run record stores and follow their passions. We licensed the eclectic vinyl collections they sent in each month, made it available to buy and brought David Bowie in to be the super user of the site – helping guide people through it.
There's a film we made with Wim Wenders here too about discovery of new music which was shot on location in a bunch of the stores.
