Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Gifts for music lovers

From the November 22, 2012 edition

“Shut Up and Play the Hits: The Very Loud Ending of LCD Soundsystem,” $20

Buy it: amazon.com

Though it screened twice in Columbus this year, most fans of LCD Soundsystem probably haven’t seen Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace’s mostly triumphant, somewhat despairing document of the band’s Madison Square Garden swan song. Bonus: Two additional discs present the entire marathon performance.

“Waging Heavy Peace” by Neil Young, $27

Buy it: The Book Loft

631 S. 3rd St., German Village

614-464-1774

bookloft.com

What rock fan wouldn’t want to read Neil Young’s memoir? The old man has a way with tangents, but if they’re anything like freewheeling Crazy Horse guitar solos, that’s OK.

Pandora One annual subscription, $36

Buy it: Pandora.com

Let’s be honest: A large portion of listeners these days experience music through streaming services like Pandora. How nice would it be to wipe the ads out of that experience?

Audio Technica AT-LP60-USB Turntable, $125

Buy it: Spoonful Records

116 E. Long St., Downtown

614-586-1918

This sleek silver USB turntable is great for first-time vinyl listeners or collectors looking to upload their collection to MP3. It comes with software for Mac and PC.
