Every month, we nominate a bookseller-endorsed LP for Record of the Month and promote the album, band, and label throughout the course of the month.We put heavy emphasis on local and/or off-the-beaten track artists and labels with the intention of bringing support and attention to our community's vibrant creative landscape.
At 7pm on the last Saturday of the month we host a FREE listening party at our 9th Ave location and spin the album in-store.
Ever wondered what people who spend all day around books read? Find out!
Our staff love giving out recommendations and talking about their most recent read, so each of them have a page of their favorites with a quote or review that they feel shows off the book's qualities they loved so much. Check them out!
Sometimes the hardest part of picking your next book to read is the choosing itself! Our Apple-A-Month club is a subscription service that sends you 1 new release fiction paperback per month.
The books are hand picked by our staff and most always from a small press so that 1) we can support these books that we believe in that do not have big publisher marketing, and 2) we can be confident that you do not already have this on your shelf.

Yes, another pandemic novel, but in the hands of Sigrid Nunez, you won't want to pass this one up!
A luxury New York City apartment in the Spring of 2020 becomes an unexpected and unlikely pandemic bubble for 3 strangers: an older writer accustomed to a solitary life, a sullen teen boy, and a talking parrot named Eureka. Narrated by the unnamed female writer, the profundity and quirkiness of quarantine life are portrayed in Nunez's trademark insight and offbeat humor. Though small and intimate in feel, the all too real Covid-19 experience we all faced makes this stunning novel feel large and universal.
