Other Music supposedly had an impressive reputation as being the place to go for every music artist known to man. So I was rather disappointed to find it's just one small room, with an island of CD racks in the middle and the selection rather poor to boot. At least everything is organized and easy to find. Just don't ask the clerks for any help looking for artists that are not on this weeks Top tweny countdown.

A favorite for music "insiders" and music snobs, but none-the-less an excellent music store. Very thorough in niche genres: electronic, reggae/dub, avant-garde. Huge section of indie rock. And good older rock and roll section

Small, but intensely passionate record store in between the Villages. Judging by the categorization system (Out,
Electronica, La Decadanse, Krautrock, Groove, Psychedelia, and Then), this is where the music snobs go, and it's where you should too. Provides a great monthly e-newsletter with audio links to the best new cutting edge releases. Also sells concert tickets to local alternative shows.

Eclectic mix of CDs from the alternative music scene. The store is small and cramped but the employees are knowledgeable and the prices are more than fair. No boy band CDs here just interesting hip music.

PROS: Interesting mix
CONS: small cramped

this is one of those record shops where the clerks know their music in high-fidelity levels of obsession. there's a real college-radio-music-director vibe to it. probably at any one time there are at least 3 music directors in there. they carry all kinds of indie music, not just the indie rawk, but also stuff like avant garde, free jazz, krautrock, and so on, arranged by category, including categories you might not have known existed but really want to check out. you can also buy tickets to certain shows here and it somehow feels much more personal than getting reamed on the ticketmaster website.
