Jordan Reyes, Moniker Records, Chicago-based record label and vinyl reseller
What’s the vibe like among attendees from your vantage point? People expect to get sold to, so if they show interest in a certain record I’ll recommend something else as well. If an original is too steep I’ll try to steer them toward a reissue. They’re more used to buying new stuff.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen from your record table at Pitchfork? People from other stores who say, “I have all this” can be pretty comical. I’ve been enthusiastic about the open-mindedness from people but surprised by the closedmindedness as well.
Who are you looking to slip away from the table to see this year? Sun Ra Arkestra. [Moniker’s Robert Manis adds Carly Rae Jepsen.]
