Spring 2019 Featured Music

From Reel Art Press' 50th anniversary book on Woodstock, authored by festival organizer Michael Lang, to Damiani's book of Bill Owens' 1969 Altamont photos, this season we've got the 60s rock festival thing covered! And yet, with books like Ruby Ray's "Kalifornia Kool," Gavin Watson's "Oh What Fun We Had" and Lars Sundestrand's "To Become Who You Are," punk and industrial music are also well represented. Other staff favorites include "Marred for Life!," collecting more than 250 modified / vandalized record covers from the collection of Greg Wooten and David Shrigley's "Goat Music," documenting the artist's film about the eerie, human-esque sound that goats make when crying out.
