Vinyls are regaining popularity and nobody wonders why anymore; played on a proper hi-fi system they produce a remarkably richer and fuller sound than CDs. I could not live without music, and although in these days collecting vinyls seems a luxury for some, there are people who do it merely because of their passion for it. That is how Radiocity discos store seems like – passionate about music. Sophisticated, alternative, progressive, folky, psychedelic, bluesy, old-school; well, they don’t have everything, because it is a small shop, but no music lover will leave empty-handed, as their selection is exquisite.
It is a wonderful feeling, just roaming through the covers and listening to something the owner has on the record player. Also, if you are looking for an enrichening conversation about music; he will be well prepared and happy to share something new. The vinyls are innovatively stacked in custom made wooden chests of drawers; which not only look good, but are comfortable to dig into. There are also some shelves with CD’s. They have a special corner for staff suggestions and recent releases.
If you like music but are using only gadgets for playing it, think about getting a record player; it comes with a passion and a special ritual of buying a vinyl. And if you have friends who share the passion – believe me – a vinyl can be one of the best presents. My recent acquisitions there, for example, were Lower Dens, Dirty Projectors and Bob Dylan.
