Permanent Records


Beyond a broad selection of indie-rock staples and curios, this Greenpoint haven houses an inviting selection of jazz and funk—the store was personally recommended to TONY by the founders of Daptone Records. As well as offering good deals on trade-ins and fairly priced used vinyl and CDs, Permanent Records hosts regular in-store performances (recent highlights include tUnE-YaRdS and Dinosaur Feathers). And crucially, with its wooden floors and cute handmade signs, Permanent Records is a cozy spot—you feel like they actually want you to be there.
