Yay, record stores

Paste has the scoop on the new documentary I Need That Record!, about the future of the independent record store. Director Brendan Toller employs "found footage, animation, and talking head interviews with artists, musicians, and retail owners" to ask big questions about commerce and creativity.

Interviews include Ian Mackaye (let's hope he plugs DC's great Crooked Beat Records), Thurston Moore, Mike Watt, Noam Chomsky, and more. No distribution deal yet for the doc, but keep your eyes peeled for screenings...

Don't forget to celebrate Record Store Day tomorrow!
