This tangerine-hued record shop blends the best of both worlds: The wide variety of a packed-to-the-brim, old-school spot with the curated, orderly selection of a modern store. Owners Matt and Dominic Siracusa are obsessive collectors themselves, which means the turnover here is high. The store is particularly well-known for its assortment of jazz, rock, soul and world music, but it offers a solid selection across genres. Serious collectors check in for rare reissues and LPs, while casual listeners flip through the $1 to $5 bins. One of the best, underrated perks here is the care the shop invests in its vinyl. Each record is cleaned and restored using a high-tech ultrasonic machine before it hits the shelves, meaning you won’t go home with a dud. Bring in your own collection for a deep-clean at $2.50 per record.
