On this episode we talk about our favorite releases of 2020. Josh and Rick talk amongst themselves including a list submitted by Caren. This is our first episode back in action since beginning our move and we glory in the reverb of the new big space!
Below you’ll find our lists. The show follows the lists in the order presented (Caren has some extra content shown here not mentioned on the show). The opening song is Space Camp song that plays a little more later on.
Beyond what we loved from other labels this year we also released 3 records this year that we’re still stoked on; the Space Camp, Landing / Headroom and Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean records all came out great and if you haven’t yet please do check them out! Available in our Big Cartel and in our Discogs shops.
You’ve really all helped make this year a small joy in times when the rest of it wasn’t!
Wishing the best for you in the coming year!
We will be open from 11AM-3PM Christmas Eve and closed on Christmas Day.
New Year’s Eve will also be an 11AM-3PM day and New Year’s Day we will be open normal hours!
Reminder: we moved! 69 South Turnpike Road in Wallingford! Bigger spot! More room to stretch and keep some social distance. Operating at a 10 person max capacity, masks required and sanitizer is at the door (gloves available to those who desire them).
We’ve now been open to the public in our new (BIGGER) location for 2 weeks! Thanks for everyone that has come by in that time and for being cooperative with our safety policies and being patient when we’ve had 10 people in the shop and you might have had to wait to come in. It’s all been a nice positive blur of a memory!
Things have picked up with record releases. And there’s plenty of pictures to be seen for this week’s new arrivals:
Thought we’d take a moment to talk about some nice easy gifts for the music fan in your life!
First off the mainstay of the holidays – Gift Certificates! If you know a person that loves to spend time digging through and finding something that catches their eye in our shop then, heck yeah, that’s a good gift!
If you’d like buy a Gift Certificate of a greater or different amount than any of the options please feel free to buy them in whatever quantity equals the amount you’d like. Gift Certificates bought online are kept on file (we don’t mail them out) and you’ll get a receipt via email. Just make sure to let us know who it should be on file for please (if it’s not apparent to us we’ll email you to ask). If you’d like a picture of it emailed to you to print out to put in a card we can absolutely accommodate that as well.
Of course, if you have a list to go by we are happy to take a look at it and help with any titles we may have in stock or can order for you (to have in by Christmas we’d recommend doing this within the next week to be safe). We have plenty of standards in stock as well as not so standards!
Beyond records, record care is always a nice gift. We have cleaning kits, microfiber cloths, and various other record accessories that make nice stocking stuffers.
In lieu of extended holiday hours we are offering appointment shopping outside of our normal hours by special request. Get in touch with us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (203 265-7013) for that.
We are open to the public currently with safety protocols: properly worn mask (over mouth & nose) for the duration of your visit, hand sanitizer at the door and gloves available for those who would like them. We are operating at a maximum capacity of 10 customers and appreciate the patience of you all visiting during our busy hours (the weekend is generally when this will come into play).
Curbside pickup is also available during our business hours.
We are open:
Friday & Saturday 11AM-7PM
