Black Lives Matter. The fact that it needs to be said shows how very far we still have to go as a country. We hear you and we are with you.
Like you, the CHIRP Features team is staying home to help flatten the curve! We are shifting our programming to present a new series in our Artist Interview Program. Shelter In Sound features interviews with artists and local music related tastemakers on what they are doing right now during this global pandemic. Tune in to learn how some of your favorite folx are managing and staying creative while hunkered down.
For this week's Shelter In Sound, Features Co-Director Jessi D spoke with Andy Weber, one of the founding members of Smashed Plastic. They discuss the founding of his vinyl pressing plant in 2018 and how the pandemic has affected his industry, the trends he's seeing in how music is consumed, and the quirks of the Chicago music scene. This podcast features tracks from local artists ROOKIE, Mute Duo, and Impulsive Hearts, who have all had records pressed at Smashed Plastic.
