Where else in Dublin but Tower Records would you see a bunch of lads lepping about like this to applause?
Hey it’s not all about MP3 files, Youtube videos and Spotify streams! Physical product is the best way to keep your record collection from getting deleted (though it can be susceptible to tea spills). We all know what bother Road Records and many other record stores are in these days. Many people aren’t aware that Tower can be added to that list of independent Irish record shops. Yes, Tower is 100% independent and 100% Irish so it needs your wallet support it too.
To remind you to drop in to the Wicklow St. shop (they have a wicked Vinyl section) more often, I’m giving away a CD copy of Grizzly Bear’s super smash indie amazo-gram album Veckatimest thanks to the guys in Tower. All you gotta do is tell us in the comments – the most surprisingly pleasant purchase you’ve ever made in a record shop? For example, I bought a copy of Joy Zipper‘s debut in Tower based on the cover and it turned out to be amazing.
Speaking of Grizzle Bizzle, here’s a link to Lil Wayne/Veckatimest mashup EP.
