Social and communal aspects are among the most treasured elements of record stores. Being surrounded by wax and flipping through the bins, while exchanging remarks with friends and strangers, is an endangered but not extinct pastime. I recently had the chance to do so while shopping at Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn with Holiday Cheer and Slingshot artist Lo Moon.
