AN ONLINE HIDDEN GEM OF A RECORD STORE.
If you’re just as sick as I am of streaming, automated robotic radio stations, discover (or re-discover) your journey to new and different music through BOOMKAT.
Born out of a 1990s Manchester, England record store and serving the online, underground, vinyl-head-collector world since 2002, BOOMKAT curates innovative, exceptional, interesting and often overlooked music from around the world.
Amongst gorgeously designed vinyl records and box sets, you’ll find rare indie recordings and cassettes that are often sold out, and high-res flac file downloads from all the best indie labels.
Whether you’re looking for the latest Kim Gordon, FKA Twigs single, or a drone cassette made by Clarice Jensen, the artistic director of the American Contemporary Music Ensemble; or the latest from Beijing underground band Gong Gong Gong and the latest SoulJazz Congo release, BOOMKAT doesn’t fail to inspire.
Take back control of what you listen to!
