-- July Release - Other Music: The Perfect Record Store --
Other Music closed it’s doors on June 25th after 21 years in business in the once artistically vibrant East Village neighborhood of New York City. The shop was founded by Chris Vanderloo, Josh Madell, and Jeff Gibson, who were all former employees at the record store spin off of Kim’s Video.
When it opened in 1995, it’s location was in the shadow of Tower records and, by 1998, Virgin Megastore opened nearby in Union Square.
Other Music shop stood out from the giants and made a name for itself with its connection to indie acts and labels. The store was early to support and promote New York City based bands, selling homemade release and hosting in-store performances.
It was the place to go to be on top of what was happening in the music scene.
Business peaked in the year 2000 at $3.1 million in sales, and sales last year were half that mark. Rent and other costs of soared. Despite the resurgence of vinyl, and sales that are still well beyond what other record shops in the country see, there’s still no hope in sight.
“From the very beginning, we’ve always been a record store,” Mr. Madell said. “It’s about people coming in here and getting lost in music in new releases. We just never wanted to reinvent or dilute it as something else. For better or worse.”
Other Music leaves a gaping hole in the New York City music scene, but will remain etched in the memory of those who loved it.
