I usually buy most of my vinyl at record shows or online these days, but I still enjoy coming to this shop a couple of times a year and spending a few hours digging through the record bins.

Landlocked Music is the best record shop locally and probably in southern Indiana. Unfortunately Ear X-tacy in Louisville is no more as it was well worth the trip from here to there in its heydey.

Landlocked Music - Bloomington, IN

That photo makes my soul bleed. Looks like a snug little shop.

Anyway the best record shop I ever went to was in Monterey, CA. I don't remember what it was called now, but I could have lived in there. It was a tiny shop with a cool dude who burned incense and played his favorite records all day. He had posters and photos completely covering the walls. It was one of the only places in the world that made me feel the closest to my natural habitat. Found many groovy gems in the 89 cent bin there.

I love a nice record store (especially the ones that make you feel like you're just right, right in the decade you wanna be, for as long as you're inside). Swoon.

when i went to to Pomana to see the Gorilla Biscuits reunion my friend Edgar took me here....i was on a hunt for anything and everything by a band called Fuckemos....struck out at dr Strange but did walk out with a great bootleg dvd of live GISM shows....which included the infamous flame thrower attack .....and the kid working there pointed me to a great vegan restaurant

Fred....the show was at The Glass House and right around the corner there was this little record store....right when i walked in there i knew i was home....a huge Man's Ruin poster and a huge AmRep poster....walked out with four Fuckemos albums and a sign copy of Sexy Pee Story by Cows

by chance do you remember this store?....it would have been around 2004 or maybe 2005

There's a lot of really great record stores in Toronto, of course there is a huge music culture here. I used to love a store called Hits & Misses - it was only open for a few years before it closed because of a lease disagreement with the building owner. Argh.

Other stores I like though are Grasshopper Records, Vortex Records, Sonic Boom, and Pandemonium, which is also a bookstore so it's automatically awesome. Out in Hamilton, there is a store called Dr. Disc, and they have pretty much everything at great prices. They're way out of my way though, so I only go there if I have something else to do in Hamilton.

Personally I can't help but feel contempt for any record store that has enough space between racks that two people can actually pass each other. Bonus points if the band names on the dividers are not only handwritten but made to look like the bands' actual logos.
