The Daily Telegraph: “Wondrous and funny” ****

December 2nd, 2011  |  Published in Reviews

“An independent record shop in Teesside – the last of its kind – might not strike you as fertile ground for a great documentary, but this is wondrous and funny, finding pathos in music nerdery and a rich ensemble of characters among staff and clientèle.”

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.
