New Records In Brooklyn


As music sales continue to slide, there’s at least one bit of bright news: vinyl sales continue to climb. And that’s thanks to Brooklyn, right? Where we love old things, and beautiful things, and new things that look like old beautiful things? But also because our borough has perhaps the highest concentration of pressing plants on the East Coast, from EKS in East New York to Brooklynphono in Sunset Park. We’re not just the ones buying it; we’re making it, too. And at Brooklynphono, they do that by recycling old records—shredding them and reforming them into new albums. “It’s like being a short-order cook,” the plant’s owner recently told the Times. “The music is only as good as the ingredients you get.”
