Our friends at DC’s Metro Weekly have assembled a rather killer guide to the DC area’s record stores.

From our playbook. “This US ambassador grooves to ‘vinyl diplomacy’ to thrive in London: “Diplomacy at its fundamental level is about connecting with people,” says Barzun, 44. “And it’s not just elected or official government-to-government relationships…We actually do get the government leaders but in a different context, all together in one place, united by a love of music and the particular band we’re featuring that night.”

OK, we need to stop citing these. “Vintage is not only a style of clothes making a comeback, but it’s also happening in the world of music. Both online and store front retailers of music are seeing an interest and spike in popularity for vinyl records.”

Another record store opens, and for a moment all is right in the world. “It doesn’t worry you that you’re three blocks from Recycled Records?”

Seriously, duh. “For the record, vinyl still rocks over digital and CDs.”
