Tallinn Old Town Records is a small but cool record shop under the arches of a dwelling house basement. Records, CDs, posters and t-shirts are stacked in piles and boxes on the shelves, on the floor, literally everywhere, as space is limited. If new stuff arrives, it’s time to go online, share the message and invite DJs, fans and all kinds of music freaks to come and join the feast of selection.
The records need to be listened, valued and placed into the right categories. Hard-bop, post-bop, jazz-blues, spiritual, electronic-jazz, indie, punk, minimal, soviet progrock, old school/new school etc. Singles, albums, package deals, special discounts – feel free and ask for more.
If your time is limited and you just want to get some good Estonian music, then ask for advice, they have the latest brand new releases of different alternative music scenes always available. However, the best is to set aside some time, ask the shop keeper to make a coffee, put this or that record on the deck, take your coat off and start exploring.
