Stream new release Other Music and support Enzian!
Here’s how this works:
For $11.50 (the $10 cost of matinee movie ticket and a $1.50 processing fee), the film’s distributor Oscilloscope will grant you access to the film, which is viewable on any internet-connected device including laptops, tablets, and smartphones. If you have the appropriate technology (Chromecast, Amazon Firestick, AirPlay, Apple TV, Smart TV, etc), you may be able to stream this to your television at home from your computer or phone. This link will give you access to the film for 3 days after you hit play. The charge will appear on your credit card statement as “SP Oscilloscope Labs.”
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your order, you can contact Oscilloscope here.
For every purchase of Other Music from now until Thursday, April 30th, nearly 50% directly goes back to Enzian in an effort to support us while we are facing a difficult time. We appreciate your support and hope to bring you more great indie films on-demand in the coming weeks!
Other Music was an influential and uncompromising New York City record store that was vital to the city’s early 2000s indie music scene. But when the store is forced to close its doors due to rent increases, the homogenization of urban culture, and the shift from CDs to downloadable and streaming music, a cultural landmark is lost. Through vibrant storytelling, the documentary captures the record store’s vital role in the musical and cultural life of the city, and highlights the artists whose careers it helped launch including Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, William Basinski, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sharon Van Etten, Yo La Tengo and TV On The Radio.
USA, 2019, 83 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by Puloma Basu and Rob Hatch-Miller
“More than any other visual document, it celebrates and immortalizes the culture of the record store and record nerds. A love letter to a bygone place, concept, and era.”– Jem Aswan, Variety
“Wonderful...an exciting reminder of what culture retailers can be, if customers don’t retreat to the cloud.”– John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
“Thoroughly engaging. Bittersweet paean that this is, however, it is filled with the joy of happy memories, as one interviewer after another pays homage to what once was.”– Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail
“OTHER MUSIC conveys the excitement of making a personal musical discovery. There’s plentiful archival footage of lively in store performances.”– Susannah Gruder, Hyperallergic
