Light In The Attic Records has opened a record shop in the KEXP Gathering Space! The Light In The Attic Record Store opened its doors for customers on Black Friday of 2016 and is now open six days a week. Regular store hours are Tuesday through Sunday 10 AM to 6 PM.
The shop not only carries Light In The Attic releases and Light In The Attic distributed titles on other labels, but also thousands of additional releases, as well as used records — plus albums specially hand-picked by KEXP DJ’s.
Revered and celebrated around the world for its deluxe reissues by Rodriguez, Betty Davis, Lee Hazlewood, Sly Stone, Thin Lizzy, Karen Dalton, The Shaggs, and many other legendary artists, as well as unique and history making compilations such as Wheedle’s Groove and Native North America, Light In The Attic joins as a retail part of the KEXP Gathering Space, where diverse live in-studio concerts and music-based community events occur.
Light In The Attic Records started in Seattle and now has offices in Los Angeles, but since its origins in July 2001 has always contributed to the creative flavor of the Pacific NW music scene, throwing Summer Extravaganzas with live bands at their previous warehouse, and hosting many events documenting the history of Seattle’s rock, soul, funk, and other scenes. Many of the label’s titles are so unique and long-awaited that they sell out quickly through mail order, so this way fans and collectors can go someplace and hand-pick brand new and rare releases. The label has put out over 200 classics, and launched additional labels Modern Classics Recordings for special vinyl-only releases like D’Angelo, The Stone Roses, and Digable Planets, as well as film and soundtrack imprint Cinewax and Future Days Recordings.
Light In The Attic is also a worldwide distributor for over 50 record labels of rare R&B, psychedelia, New Age, punk, and countless other genres, and the Light In The Attic Store will make it easier to check out these unusual and exciting distributed records as well.
