The kind folks at Current TV recently laced us with this documentary that serves as a brief history Sam Valenti's esteemed Ghostly International imprint. Between interviews with artists like Kate Simko, Todd Osborn, various staff members, and Valenti himself, the episode tracks the label's evolution from a dance music imprint to one whose catalog encompasses everything from Matthew Dear's minimal techno to Dabrye's abstract beats, and experimental rock. Plus repeated showings of XLR8R 83, when Dear was on the cover.
