‘Sound City’ Trailer Celebrates Platinum Records and Brown Shag Carpet

Sound City

It would be a tough task to list all the iconic bands who recorded albums at Sound City, but the trailer for the documentary from Dave Grohl (putting on the director’s cap for the first time) makes a brief attempt. The film seems like a must-see for music fans, especially those passionate about a particular rock sound captured from the 70s through to the baby steps of the digital era.

The story here is one of a legend who gets left behind once computers take over. Featuring interviews with all of your favorite musicians, it celebrates a studio that didn’t have enough shag carpet-covered walls to house all of the platinum records it minted.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

Sound City hits theaters in February 2013.
