Record Store Spotlight: Origami Vinyl
The vinyl community is that—a community. As such, we thought it would be nice to highlight local vinyl retailers and bring us all a little closer! You can definitely look forward to us showcasing more stores in the future.
Today we caught up with Neil Schield, Owner of Origami Vinyl in the Echo Park, Los Angeles. Check out what he had to say below.
1. How long have you been in business?
-“We will be three years old as of April 3rd!”
2. What is the best record in your store?
-“Slint 'Spiderland' in Touch & Go Records, because it was responsible for turning me on to the underground music scene”
3. What new record release are you looking forward to?
-“I’m really into Cloud Nothings 'Attack on Memory', but on February 14th, NO is releasing ‘Don’t worry, You’ll Be Here Forever’ and I’m looking forward to that.”
4. Where do you see your store in 5 years?
-“I hope to keep it as a community center for the neighborhood, creating an outlet for not only music but live performances as well.”
5. What is your holy grail? (What is the record you always wanted, but can’t find?)
-“Stereolab’s ‘Emperor Tomato Ketchup’ I refuse to buy Vinyl online!"
