Time Out Says

5 out of 5 stars

Whether you’re looking for an old Willie Nelson LP or the new Leon Bridges, Waterloo has you covered. It’s the city’s largest and most prominently located music store, and therefore the most well-stocked in terms of new releases from both indie and major label artists, as well as deluxe reissues (save your pennies for that William Onyeabor box set!). Stay current on homegrown artists by consulting the Texas best-seller charts, and keep an eye on their event calendar because many will swing through for in-store performances. It takes true digger’s luck to score a find from their dollar bins, but the used daily arrival section (updated daily!) hides plenty of gems, from classic hip-hop singles to oddball disco rarities. Records nerds with an eye for more than just vinyl should wander towards the extensive music-centric book and film sections, and for the analog-challenged, there’s also a robust selection of CDs.
