Sound Shelter lets you shop the world's best record stores from one place.

Based in Sydney, Australia, but with contributors all over the globe, Sound Shelter was set up to bring together the world's best independent record stores with DJ's and collectors around the world.

We know there are so many amazing record stores around the world that people may not know about, and we hope Sound Shelter can help connect you with new stores, new artists, and new music.

We want to enable online collectors to continue to buy from independent stores, regardless of their location, to support independs stores and keep the entire vinyl experience alive and kicking.

How does it work?

Use Sound Shelter to dig through hundreds of thousands of vinyl releases across all genres - both new and old.

When you've found the one you want, our industry-leading technology will explore the web to instantly find record stores who have that record in stock, and give you a list of stores to buy from.

We're very selective over which stores we list. We only list record stores we've tried and tested ourselves - stores that provide great packaging and fast shipping.

For the more proactive fans, we can send you an instant SMS or email alert as soon as your favourite artist or label releases a new record. You'll literally never have to buy from a reseller shark again.

Who's using it?

Hundreds of thousands of record diggers from all over the planet use Sound Shelter to find stores to buy their new favourite record from. We list some the best record stores around the world including market leaders in the UK, US and Europe, and our store list is constantly growing.
