It’s rare that in 2015 that a new RECORD STORE would open up but Dead Dog Records appeared in my neighbourhood. I finally ventured in to find out that they sold some records for lower prices than what I could find online.
I picked up a bunch! I’ve been eager to grow my collection ever since I bought my new record player. Dead Dog’s selection might be smaller than Sonic Boom but if you’re lucky there are some cool deals on awesome finds. Plus, since it’s small you can pretty much look through the entire place every time you go there, so you’re bound to find something you like!
I cherish physical copies of music still (but not CDs) and there is a magic I feel when pulling a record from the shelf and the warmth it brings to the music playing. This active relationship with music is so important, in a world where music is often as seamless as water with life. To keep these physical copies alive we have to support the artists that make them and our local stores that sell them.
