New Haven, CT | Local vintage and new albums shops attract students: Students flock to Elm City Sounds for the store’s availability of both vintage and new vinyl albums, more commonly known as records. “I’ve seen a general rise in interest in records in the last five years,” said owner Chris Della-Ragione. Della-Ragione’s store front has been in operation for the past year, but he has been selling vintage records for the past 15 years. He has seen a rise in record sales within the past five years, which prompted him to open the store front, which is located near campus at 24 Fountain St. in New Haven. “I buy them for a few reasons, but mostly because they make great conversation pieces,” said journalism major Austin Elliot, a sophomore. “I like the medium; you can look at the sleeve and cover and admire it. Which you can’t with an MP3 or FLAC file.” Elliot is a regular customer at Elm City Sounds and often comes weekly to the store to browse what’s in stock.

I felt the genre was turning gothic and that there were more interesting and sustainable types of expression that could be incorporated in the Black Metal to make it grow and spark new life into it. “My own bottomless misanthropy at the time, was also instrumental in shaping the record. Frost and I are proud of how this record contributed to a development for the genre we all know now was necessary.

Lacuna Coil’s Christina Scabbia: ‘I Wish That There Was More Respect For Music’: LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia spoke to Capital Chaos about the differences in the way music is treated in the streaming age compared to how it was when her band was formed out 25 years ago. She said: “Well, things definitely changed. Back when we started, of course, it was all about physical copies, it was all about waiting at the record store for the release of the album — religiously. You were waiting for that day. And now it’s, like, everything is on streaming. There are leaks because some dicks — because some dicks — are putting albums and songs out without any respect for the artist, like it’s a piece of nothing while every song, every record holds the art and the heart of the artist. There is a little bit less respect for music, which is kind of sad, for those who don’t understand it.”
