LA recordstores


#1

Hey there,
I’m in LA for a few days and would love to hit some recordstores.
Any recommendations for a house/techno joint?

Cheers

probably Mt. Analog is where you’ll want to go. I think it’s still there. Figueroa St in Eagle Rock which might be a little out of your way depending on where you are.

nevermind, looks like they closed. not super surprised. for everything else, try the mecca, Amoeba, in Hwood…

Only record store I visited in LA was this place called Origami Vinyl… it was my first record store I’ve ever went to but the selection there is super basic so I don’t really recommend it.

+1 on Amoeba. Never been there but I always hear good stuff about it.

ive always wanted to check out Artform, Adrian Younge’s record store / barber shop on Fig near Stones Throw, from what ive heard more of a salon/art space with wax on the side, big emphasis on funk/soul/hiphop but might be a type of space to get the good word on what you’re seeking…word from reviews is that its pretty boutique (read: overpriced represses and cool chasing scenesters) but its LA so things evolve quickly and internet echos are never reliable…anyone else been there?


#6

oh yeah, that place is fantastic…absolutely correct on the soul/funk/hiphop focus (+coffee table books/knickknacks) but it’s worth checking out for sure. unless it moved, it was down in the art district downtown.
