Jack Antonoff Writing A Book Called ‘Record Store’

Jack Antonoff, of Bleachers, is writing a book called Record Store. The New York Times has an interview with Jack:

Mr. Antonoff, 31, explained in an interview that the project was based largely on his own youth as a voracious CD consumer in suburban New Jersey — far from the popular perception of a record-store patron as a crate-digging vinyl obsessive.

“It seems like the nerdy, record-collector type owns the conversation,” Mr. Antonoff said. “But that wasn’t my experience growing up, and it wasn’t the experience of a lot of people I know.”

“Record Store” will be “the opposite of an old, crotchety, ‘things-were-better,’ dusty book about vinyl,” he added.
