1995 年，「其他音樂」唱片行在紐約東村淘兒唱片對面開業，店名高調地標示著此處將聚集 一切被視為奇怪而難以歸類的音樂與人。本片記錄這家傳奇唱片行在 2016 年關門前夕，到最終的紀念演唱會，集合國民樂團、動物共同體樂團、優拉糖果樂團、Yeah Yeah Yeahs 樂團等知名音樂人，他們做為這家店的店員、熟客、表演者與好友，共譜一封寫給千禧世代樂迷的情書。
Other Music was an uncompromising independent Manhattan record store that was vital to New York City’s 2000s music scene, but when the store is forced to close its doors, the homogenization of urban culture, and the shift from CDs to downloadable and streaming music, a cultural landmark is lost.
普拉瑪．芭蘇、羅柏特・海奇-米勒，成軍紐約，現居洛杉磯的導演夫妻檔，他們曾幫Real Estate、Sharon Van Etten等人拍攝MV，並為多部音樂紀錄片的製片。本片為其首部紀錄長片，「其他音樂」唱片行也是兩人的定情地。

When we first heard Other Music was closing, we were devastated. We both have a deep connection to the store. Rob is an ex-staff member, and Puloma was a longtime customer and a friend to many people at the store. Other Music was a place where we both learned a lot about music, were introduced to New York City culture, and gained a second family in a daunting new city.
Through our ties to Other Music we met each other, got married, and became filmmaking partners. We are so honored to be able to tell the story of a place that was so special to us and to our life in New York City, as it was to so many other people around the world. We hope our film further cements Other Music's legacy as one of New York City's most important musical landmarks, and inspires people around the world to keep its spirit alive.
