RSR PC 062 Favorites of 2022

Happy New Year!

It is time for our list of favorites from the past year! We asked everyone here at the shop if they’d like to submit a list and 5/6 of us did! [UPDATE: Photini sent us a list and an updated pic – check the end of the post! 6/6] Josh and I are joined by our shipping specialist Caleb and we also read from Caren’s and Lexi’s lists. We mention our releases from the past year at the top of it and finish off with some live shows we enjoyed. This is a music heavy / heavily edited show so please enjoy it all! If you enjoy it and want to hear some more let us know if you’d like it as a playlist and maybe we’ll share that!

The Redscroll Podcast is a monthly show (new episodes on the first of the month) that works as a companion to what we do at Redscroll Records in Wallingford, CT USA. We are a record store that has a heavy emphasis on the left of center / underground music of the world. Whether it be underappreciated or just has a niche audience, marginalized or just off the radar it’s all of interest to us. With the show we’ll generally have a localized focus. We’ll discuss what is in our personal rotation at the moment. We’ll talk to guests who have to do with all of the above. And we’ll talk about specific dealings with the store. If you have input you’re welcome to contact us through email ( Oh, and please do subscribe!
