Record shop stocking music of just about every genre you’d want to listen to, plus a few you probably wouldn’t
For many years the Glasgow branch of defunct Edinburgh record store chain Avalanche, Love Music exists as a standalone independent which – under the stewardship of record industry veteran Sandy McLean (formerly of Rough Trade and Virgin) – continues to hold down its own small corner of what remains of the physical music sales market in Scotland.
It does so by hard-working dedication to those old-fashioned rigours that make record stores of such enduring importance. There are racks upon racks of CDs and vinyl, with a few rarities among them. Genre-wise, T\there’s everything from indie and rock to metal, punk, Americana, country, soul, hip hop, reggae, jazz, blues, electronica, soundtracks, world music and even audio books and comedy. Pretty much everything expect chart pop, techno, classical or easy listening, basically.
The shop also fosters a community spirit by stocking loads of music by local artists, and getting involved with events such as the annual Record Store Day. If vinyl continues its renaissance across coming years, it’ll be thanks in no small part to the dedication and expertise of shops like this.
