I agree--this place is great. And I also DEEPLY miss browsing. And "listening stations." Yeah that place in Brooklyn is there, but I have no other reason to be in that area.

Other Music evolved out of the small record shop in the rear of Kim's Underground on Bleecker Street. I'd go to Kim's for videos in the early 90's and one day discovered there was a record shop back there too. Chris V. turned me onto Pavement, Guided By Voices and many of the exciting American indie bands of the early 90's. I remember a show Josh coordinated in the front of Kim's Underground that featured Barbara Manning and Yo La Tengo.
When Chris and the gang grew out of Kim's they launched Other Music on 4th Street. May it live forever as one of New York's best record shops.


The staff there was always great, and, as you mention, super knowledgeable without being snobbish. I would go there at Christmastime armed with a list from my former husband. The salesperson was more than happy to help find things, since their classification system was (and probably still is) unique. Will try to stop by there the next time I'm in the city. To echo Drew above, may they live forever!
