Agnes Obel, In-store with TVD at DC’s Som Records

PHOTOS: RICHIE DOWNS | If there’s a common thread that runs among those who join us for a record rummage at Washington, DC’s Som Records, typically and most obviously they’re avowed denizens of record stores and vinyl fanatics, and they also tend to be what could be deemed outsized personalities. Be they Grace Potter or Charli XCX or The English Beat’s Dave Wakeling or Gwar even, they’ve arrived raring to go.

Recently we were delighted to hear that Agnes Obel had accepted our invitation to join us at Som Records in between two live dates at DC’s 9:30 Club in support of her current and universally praised release Citizen of Glass. We wondered as well, would she arrive to Som bearing the same thoughtful and contemplative approach to record shopping as in evidence on Citizen of Glass?

Well, actually yes—and no. Ms. Obel is warm and engaging, funny and indeed thoughtful with an eclectic knowledge of music in its varying forms—and she also lingered far longer than the aforementioned outsized personalities. In fact, it turned out to be our longest shoot to date, the lure of the arcane finds in Neal’s “Expensive Shit” category proving too interesting to breeze by.

Thus, in advance of Record Store Day 2017, we’re record shopping with Agnes Obel at Washington, DC’s Som Records!

Agnes Obel’s Citizen of Glass is in stores now—on vinyl.
