This month we highlight this blast from the past zine from the now defunct Slowtrain Music. You kids may not remember but there used to be these places called “music stores” where you would buy actual physical CDs and records that played music thru stereos. No download required. Slowtrain owners Anna and Chris Brozek edited this collection of great albums from 2006 which includes older treasures from bands with new albums out now such as Band of Horses and Grizzly Bear. Check it out to find some good music that you may not have heard of or a reminder of how awesome Decemberist’s The Crane Wife is.
(This pick was not at all influenced by the fact that Anna picked my favorite album Rabbit Fur Coat by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins as her #1. Not at all.)
This zine is available for check out in the Zine Collection at the Salt Lake City Public Library.
