I gotta give a shout out to my favorite record shop growing up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, BOWWOW records. I’ll never forget going in there, picking up a giant stack of CDs and listening for hours. They never got mad at me and one of the original members of The Shins worked there and was really nice! It’s hard for me to get that much free time these days but it was super important to me to be able to hang out and listen to weird music all day. Portland has a TON of amazing record shops as well. What’s your fav?
