Best of Boston

2018 Best Record Store

Vinyl Index

Flipping through the crates of records at this pint-size shop, which opened this spring, is like catching a glimpse inside a music pro’s personal collection. Opened by George "7L" Andrinopoulos, Jeremy Sullivan, and Peter Fiumara, three local legends with decades of music-making, DJing, and producing between them, it’s equal parts fan clubhouse, music school, and vinyl boutique. New and used records spanning all genres are organized in a bright, fresh space that makes it easy to catch sight of an old favorite without the usual dusty digging.
