In The New Analog Damon Krukowski provides a critical outlook on the culture’s transition from analog to digital technologies, and the effects on our lives that follow this change. Krukowski was a member of the popular indie band Galaxie 500 in the late 80’s, and he witnessed the shift first hand. Throughout The New Analog he uses engineering concepts of signal and noise to discern what got lost in the process of transformation, and what is worth preserving. Along the way Krukowski asks important questions: Does the digital technology acts as a solution, or simply alienates us? Do streaming services impede our ability to listen? Are our voices being heard in the new environment? By analyzing the way digital media changed both our means of production, and consumption of music Krukowski provides a necessary criticism to drive the expansion of our understanding of modern culture.
