Bought a lot of records throughout my life (and a lot more yesterday), thanks to this guy @stormyrecords. I started going to Windy and Carl’s record store as soon as I got my drivers license on my 16th birthday (so, 18 years ago 😬). Growing up in the middle of nowhere in Michigan before file sharing was really a “thing”, places like were are a lifeline and a portal into another universe. I don’t think it’s an understatement to say that albums I discovered here (and places like Neptune in Royal Oak and Encore in Ann Arbor) literally changed my life. These are important, almost sacred places and a lot more than just a “shop” where we buy things. They’re about community, conversations, opinions, taste, understanding and everything else that makes us human.... everything you WON’T get from a Spotify algorithm. Support these places and respect them like a goddamn religion, I know I do.
PS you can now buy our 12” “Body Is Working” here. I found a few copies leftover from our US tour in 2017 and donated them to the cause.
