Movie Recommendation: Sound City

February 13, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

For those who don’t know, Sound City is a recording studio based in Los Angeles where most of the influential rock recordings of the past 40 years were laid down. Think Fleetwood Mac, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Nirvana, Weezer, and the list goes on and on.

In recent times, Sound City with its Neve soundboard has almost been swallowed up with the advent of digital music production (the dreaded auto-tune is part of that). Dave Grohl put this movie together to celebrate its long, storied history, and what set it apart from other studios that have come and gone; that same Neve soundboard, custom built and used by hundreds of artists, producers, and engineers.

If you’re into learning about rock history (and I am in a big way), check it out. There’s a plethora of famous faces that stop by to tell their tales about Sound City. There is even a Nirvana reunion of sorts, with a special guest filling it for Kurt.

Great flick overall.
