Metrogum Host Charlie Dunlop talks with Neil Schield owner of the famous and probably coolest under the radar record store in Los Angeles, Origami vinyl. They discuss how the store got started, why they sell only vinyl and not digital music and Neils method for organizing the bins. This interview was shot back in 2009 just months after the store opened. Little did we know back then that today, Origami Vinyl would become one of the main voices and advocates for the Los Angeles music scene and audiophiles. The store has hosted a wide range of musical talent from Florence And The Machine and YUCK to indie rockers Avi Buffalo. If you are not local but would like to see Origami’s in store performances you can also watch them at ontherecord.tv.
*Side note: Origami Vinyl was also the location for the first episode of the Metrogum Music Scene.
