Here’s a store you can swear by, audiophiles, casual collectors and vinyl junkies: The Wknd now has a store for all your Malaysian and Southeast Asian music needs. Welcome to The Wknd Store.
The store itself may be a relative newcomer to the city’s record scene, but Fikri Fadzil’s music platform The Wknd has long set the agenda of the independent music scene in Malaysia and beyond; think the long-running music series ‘The Wknd Sessions’, which showcases live, stripped down performances by artists in the region. These acts run the gamut from up-and-coming and unsigned to heavyweight names, and the genres are just as varied, which you’ll find is reflective of the inventory in-store.
The shop is smaller than most, but it holds its own with a well-stocked – and growing! – selection of records (plus cassettes and CDs) by local and regional acts, alongside T-shirts, tote bags and zines. Bonus: there’s a resident cat, but Bullet’s probably too cool to hang with you.
