We take a tour of the most talked about record shop to open in years and meet up with Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne to chat records and just why it’s so important that kids are buying Justin Bieber on vinyl. Last year, Rough Trade added to their two London shops with the long-awaited opening...
Norton Records warehouse was severely flooded by Hurricane Sandy on November 2012. They now need any kind of help to try and save as many vinyl records as possible.

Roddy Bogawa is a vinyl record collector and a huge fan of the cover art of Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis.
We visited Roddy in his NYC studio apartment to profile him for the Dust & Grooves website. We decided to create a collage using only albums designed by Storm. This is a screen grab of the making of the collage.

We continue our tour of the Golden State for another special episode of Behind The Counter. Holding down a spot in San Francisco’s iconic Haight district for over 20 years, Groove Merchant has become a mecca for collectors, DJ’s and producers on the search for the rarest funk, soul and jazz records around. Home of Luv N’ Haight and Ubiquity Records, Groove Merchant’s Chris Veltri introduces the store’s top 5 rare funk & soul records.
With their 50th release just around the corner, we look around the Chicago home of the ever-expanding Numero Group.
2013 has been a vintage year for Ken Shipley and Rob Sevier. Prolific, but never to a fault, Numero Group have stepped up operations in all directions across the last twelve months, seeing them rescue the forgotten sound of The Forte Label in their stunning Eccentric Soul series, tame the “feral maelstrom” of noise-rock outfit Unwound and shed new light on the celestial, (whisper it) New Age ambiance of Iasos.
Culminating in what already looks to be one of their most exciting pieces of aural archaeology, Numero are on the cusp of NUM050, the catalogue number carried by Minneapolis funk compilation Purple Snow, which will be released as a 4xLP set with hardbound book on 3rd December.
In our latests travels across the US to track down the nation’s biggest vinyl heads, collectors and eccentrics, we had a poke around Numero Group’s Chicago HQ, grabbed a bit of couch time with Shipley and Sevier and got an exclusive look at the produce of soul legend Syl Johnson’s vegetable patch.
We take a look at LA’s most serene record emporium Origami Vinyl. We caught up with Origmai’s Neil Schield to get the inside track on what’s gleaming in the Golden State right now, from West Coast garage rock to underground Chinese fuzz.
