Charli XCX, Kitten’s Chloe Chaidez and TVD: Record shopping at DC’s Som Records

PHOTOS: RICHIE DOWNS | It’s said you’re often given an instant to make an impression on a music buying public, and if that’s indeed the case, both Charli XCX and Kitten’s Chloe Chaidez are riding an initial wave toward superstardom.

Or, so it may seem. In fact, both Charli and Chloe have been working at it for years—Charli’s been releasing tracks since 2008 and quite smartly, we had Kitten on our radar since 2010. And if their reception in Washington at DC’s sonic epicenter, U Street Music Hall this past November is any indication, both Charli and Chloe have years of music making ahead of them.

Prior to that U Hall gig, we invited both Chloe and Charli to join us at Som Records for a bit of a record rummage, and with 2 enthusiastic thumbs up, we set about it. And it should be noted, both Charli and Chloe are what we’d call in back in NJ, a good hang. Funny, warm, engaging—well, you’ll see.

Let’s go record shopping, ok?
