They know their customers and if your a connoisseur of the rare to the obscure funk, soul, alternative rock, punk or blues record or no wave -whatever; chances are they’ll have something interesting in for you to check out. Consider them your music curators. Their stock is not huge because of these changes times but they will certainly try and track down whatever you want and will enjoy talking about it. This is the record store experience you won’t get online. This is how shopping for music should be.
Here’s a few samples of the great finds in just the past few months. I often talk about accidental discovery and the Sound Station is the place to do it in. Just open your ears and audio fun will follow. You won’t be able to follow them on twitter or anything fancy like that. Just not they are closed Sundays and Mondays.
