Best Place to Shop When You're Craving German Techno and Françoise Hardy (2013)

Other Music

You wake up on a Saturday morning—the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and everything is right with the world . . . until you realize that your CD collection is lacking in Thai pop chanteuses of the 1960s. How can this be? Before your friends catch wind of this gap and roundly humiliate you, head down to Other Music, the place to satisfy every genre fetish, no matter how obscure. Other stocks all manner of intriguing riches past and present—if you want the latest from Washed Out or Raspberry Bulbs, it'll be here. Check out the Top Sellers board so you can keep up with your Joneses—you don't want to be the last on your block to hear the new Fuck Buttons, do you? But also rest assured that the staff at Other is never snobby or uppity. They love what they sell, and they're always happy to answer questions or make recommendations. In other words, they're the exact opposite of those guys you dated in the '80s or '90s or early '00s who claimed to be into "obscure music," which usually only meant they had a copy of Weasels Ripped My Flesh. No, the folks at Other are the real deal.
