Somerville Grooves

For music nerds, the neighborhood record store used to be a home away from home, and its disappearance in recent years has left us distraught. So it was with sweet relief that we welcomed Somerville Grooves to the scene two years ago. The store focuses mainly on vinyl, and doesn’t offer a huge selection, but owner David Plunkett makes up for that with a carefully curated inventory and a friendly vibe.
