Sound It Out
“Billed as the last vinyl record shop in Teesside, United Kingdom, Sound It Out Records is a warm, neighborhood café that serves music rather than food. It’s a testament to the place that it still exists, especially in a town hard hit by the economy. Director Jeanie Finlay uses a beautifully deft touch on letting the story tell itself—witnessing the owner’s vast memory bank of his store’s stock, conversing with its colorful patrons. It’s a wish-I-was-there experience.”

Glimmer Films in association with Sideshow present a film by Jeanie Finlay; SOUND IT OUT.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

High Fidelity with a Northern Accent.
