Humane view of record shop as a matter of life & death
8 December 2011 | by Mick GoldSee all my reviews

"Sound It Out" is an observational documentary film about life in a small record shop in Stockton-on-Tees. But that's a bit like saying that "Anna Karenina" is a book about a bored Russian housewife. Within these small premises, strong emotions surge and identities are defined and re-negotiated. A wryly affectionate look at the staff and customers evokes a sense of how music is the life-blood for a lot of people stuck in boring jobs in boring places. Naturally, the film has a great soundtrack and there are a few startling moments. A debate about what genre Pisschrist belongs to. An exploration of the technology of a coffin made out of vinyl. But what comes across is a sense of community and human contact, before the brave new world of digital downloads turned music into solitary pleasure. These is some discussion of why 99% of the shop's customers are male, as the female director delivers a compassionate account of blokes' culture.
