Hey Record store lover, hey vinyl addict …

Record Store Day is on Saturday 19 April 2014.  For New Zealand events and releases, check out Dubdotdash’s listing of Record Store Day events and Public Address’s post.

In Ōtautahi, Galaxy Records has X-Ray Charles live instore and rare and collectable vinyl from the vaults. Pennylane Records have pushed their Record Day stuff out to the afternoon of Friday 25 April.

From top 20 stuff to second hand 12 inch 80s vinyl, from the hottest French electropop to Kiwi dub – it’s all good at your local record store.

Cover of Facing the other wayI am also keen on reading about record labels – hoping to finish Facing the other way: The story of 4AD by Martin Aston over the Easter break. It is a splendid book.

The Library caters for music lovers well, we send you off to the record store better informed and give you the chance to try before you buy. See our Music pages for more information – and don’t forget next month is New Zealand Music Month and there will be performances in our libraries to liven up your May.

What do you think of record shops? Are you all about online music purchasing, or do you still love that vinyl?
