Pop Gets Crackle, Snap Back

from the everything-old-is-new-again dept

I think the first CD I ever bought that had fake vinyl sounds on it was bought in 1996 from a small NYC band that put them at the beginning, in the middle (to show where the vinyl was supposed to be “flipped”), and at the end. Now it seems that plenty of musicians think it’s the in thing to do to add extra “vinyl” crackling noises to their pristine CD recordings to add a little more character (or something). Everyone seems to have a different reason for doing it, but now that there’s a big article about it, I think we can officially declare this trend hyped out.
