Peculiar Places: E. Strange’s Most-Loved Virtual Haunts.

As an audiophile and blogster I have come to appreciate the spots and shops on the interweb that have gained my loyalty by making my jaw drop and my record collection green with envy.

1. Wax Poetics


Okay, W.P. is also a dope magazine but the site is also a great place to roam. This place hipped me to Betty Davis, Pharoah Sanders and so many other obscure, forgotten or barely known musicians. The best thing about this places is that they span such a breadth of eras and genres that you can’t bored, you can only get exhaust by all the giddyness. The photo art is amazing and robust, the articles are written with patience and great attentiveness. Expand the depths of your music knowledge and start here to connect some of the dots.

2. Dusty Groove America


Vinyl vultures, try contain yourselves – it’s only a record wonderland. You can find your heart’s desire or gain a brand new lust sorting through the different types of music. They even have a bargain bin for those of us on a budget, you know? You can get Blue Magic, Stax Greatest Hits and Harleigh Cole for less than six dollars.

3. Mixtape Riot


Formerly Via Captain’s Crate, the crew decided to move all the jams over to Mixtape Riot. They have the hippest tracks, the coolest gems and the most happening videos. Go there – often.
