Our Favorite Albums: Part 1: I Am The Movie by Motion City Soundtrack

Do not sleep on this album. 2003 was a fantastic year for music, and Motion City Soundtrack’s debut release is part of that legacy. I Am The Movie is still heavily in regular rotation at our shop. 


The band's first version of this release was hand packaged on a CD-R inside a floppy disk case.  After almost twenty years of pining for an original pressing on vinyl, hoping and wishing an affordable copy would magically appear on Discogs, Epitaph reissued this on Tangerine With Black Splatter vinyl on May 19, 2023.
