Red Bull Music Academy put together an incredibly impressive video called “Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic,” a short look at the history and personality of DFA Records. It’s a lovely collection or oral histories, cheeky one-liners (like James Murphy asserting that peanut butter is the greatest American flavor) and “I’m […]
