Wall of Sound
Wall of Sound is one of Capitol Hill’s treasures! It’s another great record store to go digging and diving in! They have an interesting selection of titles and gems that I always walk out of there incredibly satisfied that I didn’t have to pay a gazillion dollars in shipping (I have expensive ‘overseas’ music taste when ordering records) and as their website says, they specialize in avante-garde, japanese noise, industrial, art rock, indie, alternative, free jazz, folk, experimental, ambient. World, electronic, electronic-acoustic, neo-classical and so much more! I picked out a couple of fun records that I thought a KEXP listener would enjoy, the “Spezial Edition Fariges” vinyl reissue of Kraftwerk Tour De France and Autechre, surprise 2020 fifteenth studio album “Plus”. These are great gifts for someone who is interested in learning about two seminal electronic bands or you already love them and want the latest releases! The Kraftwerk reissue has a special inserts inside and the Autechre is just necessary for any one of their fans. Also, Michael, a co-owner of Wall of Sound, is very helpful and has great music taste! He will always recommend titles to you as well for the ultimate Wall of Sound shopping experience.
