Sad news in the NYC music world today: beloved record store Other Music will be closing on June 25. They posted on Facebook:

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that after more than 20 years in New York City, Other Music will be closing our doors on Saturday, June 25th. It’s been an incredible run for us, and we cannot thank you enough for the support and inspiration that you’ve given us over these past two decades. We’ve learned so much from you and are so grateful to have had your trust, curiosity, and passion as we’ve discovered and explored so much great music together since we first opened back in December of 1995. Times have changed, and soon we will be moving on, but in the coming weeks we hope you’ll come by and see us, dig through our racks, and reminisce about what has been a truly special era for all of us. We’ll also be announcing more events and celebrations soon, so stay tuned. Once again, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

End of an era. The New York Times points out that Other Music's mail order site will also close, but their label Other Music Recording Co, which started in 2012, will continue.

Be sure to head there while you still can, and stay tuned for more info on those final events. While we never found Other Music to be anything but a friendly place full of knowledgeable staff, this Human Giant sketch from 2006 starring Aziz Ansari, Andy Blitz, a pre-SNL Bobby Moynihan and Julie Klausner is pretty funny:
