New & Noteworthy: CO-OP 87

I stumbled upon this storefront today as I was running errands. I didn’t have time to pop in— but then again I really didn’t have the need: I do not collect LPs. However, I know a number people reading this do and would undoubtedly find what Co-Op 87 offers of interest. Per the sandwich board in front, this establishment feaures records from Kemado, Mexican Summer, Captured Tracks, Sacred Blues and Minimal Wave; and specializes in “limited edition” and “exclusive vinyl”. Those of you who are attending tomorrow’s Record Riot may very be behooved to swing by and give this place a look-see. Not only is Co-Op 87 a mere ten minute walk from the Warsaw, but I am damned curious to hear more about this, Greenpoint’s newest business!

  2. Went by after the (rather lackluster) record riot, and the lady and gentleman working were super nice and offered to play anything on the wall if I was curious. They had a slew of releases from small labels, of which I’d heard of maybe three (and maybe only one or two of the labels themselves). There was a Tommy’s Picks section with some impassioned reviews of recent releases (Pure Ecstasy’s Future Nostalgia 7″ EP, Dragon Turtle / Goodnight Stars Goodnight Air Split 12″, Animal Hospital’s Memory), all of which I picked up based on exuberant slips of paper alone. Only through the first of these so far, but given what I’m hearing, this is a place I’ll trust, hardcore.

    No cards, yet, though, so bring your greens.

  4. (Given the name, I would assume it is some sort of co-op venture between these labels, but I didn’t remember to even ask. Very limited, but well curated election.)
