Another music documentary gets a digital release date

The beloved New York record store documentary Other Music now has an official digital release date. Other Music will arrive on Amazon Prime, iTunes, Google Play, and other streaming services on August 25, following a canceled theatrical release due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will be distributed by Factory 25. Find the poster for Other Music below.

Other Music was directed and produced by Puloma Basu and Rob Hatch-Miller. It features Tunde Adebimpe (TV on radio), William Basinski, Animal Collective, Matt Berninger (The National), Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), Stephin Merritt (Magnetic Fields) and many more.

Other Music closed in 2016 after an influential presence on the New York indie rock scene of the early 2000s. Of the documentary, former Other Music owner Josh Madell said in a press release: “ It’s a story about record stores, of course, but on top of that, it’s about the power of community and the changing face of our cities and culture. The film is a joyful celebration of creativity, the people and places that matter in this life. And it seems all the more relevant today.
