“Earlier this year, our Oakland-based Motown soul and funk band Trace Repeat took on the ambitious task of printing our new album “The Oaktown Sound” on CD and 12-inch vinyl. Two master revisions, countless artwork updates, three months of manufacturing time, and $4,000 worth of debt later, we finally had our record ready to sell on yet another form of extinct media. Because let’s face it. We all end up listening on Spotify anyway, right?”
Trace Repeat talks about floppy disks, CDs, vinyl, and our emotional connection to physical music media in their guest blog for Concert Crap. Read more here.
“When you listen to this record, I won’t be as presumptuous to say that we’ve captured the “sound” of Oakland in our little nine-song record. The best that I can hope for is that it gives you a 31-minute glimpse into the Oakland music communities that we’ve found for ourselves, for Trace Repeat.” Experience Oakland through the eyes of 6-piece Oakland based funk and soul band Trace Repeat in their guest blog on Kill The Music here.
