Wall of Sound is my favorite place to shop for experimental CDs and records. They have a good selection of music, particularly experimental and avant garde (new and used) as well as world, jazz, pop/rock, etc, and there are listening stations available so you can preview the music. The owners are knowledgeable and helpful! They also put on a monthly evening of live music at the Jewel Box Theater.
Confounded Books is located in the same building.

This truley is the best place to go for local and national Zines. They have hundreds in all shape and sizes, each one more original than the next. They also have random magazines and books on art and music. The guys that work their are always really helpful and more than willing to order something for you if they dont have it in stock. Plus, now that the store has merged with Wall of Sound it's even better!

This is my favorite place for indie magazines. I can get the most outlandish material. Don't let that take away the fact that the selections cover all aspects of music, art, lifestyles, etc.
The location is quite cool as well. After I get a new magazine, I'll usually hit a cafe, restaurant, music store, or bar to read my material. Oh man the urban life rules! I am glad this store is part of my daily experience in Seattle, WA.

PROS: choices are plenty
CONS: none

Wall Of Sound is the only place in Seattle I am able to find certain genres of music that I need. Often I find myself ordering online, only ot catch myself and call Wall Of Sound and find that It's three blocks away. They carry very hard to find music. I want to consider it a specialty music store, but then I find that if the music is good, often times they are likely to carry slightly more mainstream c.d.s. That fact creats a non-pretensious atmosphere that is often run into is specialty stores of any kind. There is also a great selection of outsider art publications and smaller releases of comics and writing. I love it here.

Pros: eclectic, great location, selection

As an independently spirited author who's published my share of zines, I have a really soft place in my heart for the indie press. It opens doors for writers and authors who would get passed on by the major houses because they're just too marginal or daring. But thanks to places like Confounded Books, these indie press books and self-published zines are available in a well-arranged hip store in a great location on Capitol Hill. The staff is up on what they carry, so it's worth it to ask for a recommendation.

i really like this store. the people are very helpful, you can listen to any cd before buying, and they have the best selection of obscure music in seattle. when i first moved here from the east coast i was worried, then i discovered wall of sound and everything turned out alright. it is a shame that ear and eye control went of business though...
