Underwood: Stories In Sound
By Stephen Mejias Posted: Jun 10, 2010
Underwood, the new vinyl-only record label, which takes its name from the typewriter invented by Frank Wagner in 1896, was founded by writer Nathan Dunne. Dunne’s goal is to publish short stories on vinyl records. Underwood urges us to slow down, focus, listen, and enjoy.
The Underwood discs, scheduled to appear twice a year, represent part of the growing resistance to the dematerialisation of art. By emphasising tactility, scarcity (each issue is limited to 1,000 copies), and physical beauty, it offers something that can’t be digitally replicated.
