Hidden behind a line of 100-plus giddy teens waiting for doors to open for the Rixton show at the Ready Room, Music Record Shop quietly opened for business for the first time this past Wednesday. The storefront is nothing fancy. A single red door sits in brick next to a hand-painted window as a neon sign gives all the info needed to peak a record collector's interest... MUSIC. Inside, a modest-sized room is filled with fresh, beautifully packaged new vinyl from every genre. Highly sought-after reissues from Faith No more, Outkast, Bathory and Killing Joke sit alongside new releases, punk-rock classics, local artists, an impressive collection of horror-movie soundtracks from the UK's coveted Death Waltz label and more.

With its focus on new import vinyl and catering to the local market, this is a record shop with a vibe that's more specialty store than garage-sale rummage. There are a couple of CDs and a small rack of cassettes, mostly from smaller indie labels, but the star of this shop is unmistakeable; crisp, clean, collectible new wax.
