Record Shop
“The Alper brothers opened Atomic in the ‘90s and its longevity testifies to their consistent quality. Prices tend to be on the higher end so don’t expect a ton of bargains, but their stock, especially jazz and Latin music, is quite good. They benefit from being close to Hollywood industry collectors who often have eclectic records to sell or trade to them. They have a huge, curated wall of high-end records, but always start with the new arrivals that are piled on the ground at the bottom of the wall.”
