Summersteps Records interview Pt 2
Here's my continued conversation with Eric Schlittler from Summersteps.
We talk about another one of his recent releases, the Suetta LP. Turns out in high school someone was listening to the same things I was...Sonic Youth, Unwound, except unlike me they were actually good and 10 years later they commited it to vinyl. Thurston and Byron even wrote it up in Bull Tongue. High school self vindicated!
We nerd out about lost underground records like Bob Trimble, Gary Higgins, the stuff on Mississippi records, Flea market finds, giving away music for free, and vinyl as art(ifact).
Vinyl is back!
Like you need one more place telling you that piece of breaking news.
He has an amazing passion for the label and releasing great music, really great guy. I appreciate it so much he could take a minute and talk to me about his label.
Here it is, Part 2 of my conversation with Eric at Summersteps. MP3 20min.
