The MV Podcast 067: Mark Garza (Funeral Sounds)

News / Podcast / July 8, 2015

This week on the Modern Vinyl Podcast (and in James’ first solo interview), we have Mark Garza, owner and operator of Funeral Sounds, a Texas-based record label, music blog and zine. James and Mark talk the multifaceted project’s origins, present and future — including a conversation about the label’s first vinyl release and current digital charity compilation benefiting Casa Ruby, a bilingual, non-profit LGBTQ shelter in Washington D.C. The release, which features new and celebrated tracks from Adult Mom, Brendan Lukens (of Modern Baseball), and The World is a Beautiful Place, can be picked up here.

Mark and James also talk about drivers’ licenses, which made Chris feel old.
