No, I don't pronounce it like "Minne-snow-taaaaahhhhh." No one in Minneapolis really talks like that. (People a few towns outside of Minneapolis, perhaps.)

In print this week, I wrote about Acoustic Sounds, Chad Kassem's vinyl empire in Salina, Kansas. The company retails records online; records artists; reissues classic albums; and now plates and presses records at a subsidiary, Quality Record Pressings. It's a pretty amazing operation they've got going there; click through to this slideshow for a photo tour of the place. Read the story here.

Kansas City! A fine town! Our town! Read all about it in our Best of Kansas City issue, out today. Sure, you can check it out online, but wouldn't it be more pleasant to pick one up and hold it in your hands? Superior perusing that way.

A shorter music section this week due to Best Of, but we've still got an Around Hear on local psych-pop group Gentleman Savage, an oral history of the disgusting Valero station at 17th and Grand and, as always, the Forecast. The Pitch loves you, don't you see? Won't you love us back?
