NYC bookstore The Strand now selling vinyl
The Strand is a NYC institution, selling “18 miles of books” for 87 years. They’ve just announced that some of that yardage will now be devoted to vinyl:
We cater to bibliophiles, now we need to cater to audiophiles. Stop by Strand’s main floor and basement to browse some of our carefully selected LPs. You’ll find 140gram,180gram, and colored vinyl, classic rock LPs from The Beatles to the Rolling Stones, contemporary artists like Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Modest Mouse, and Fleet Foxes, not to mention all the classic R&B, Blues, and Jazz that you’ve been craving to hear in high-fidelity. So sit back, put the needle to the groove and crack open your favorite book from the Strand.
You can check out their (what looks to be new) wares at The Strand’s website too which also sells music related readables like The Pitchfork Review and Bob Stanley’s great Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Story of Modern Pop.
