Music fans can now enjoy a new record store on the Boise Bench. Modern Sounds Vinyl & Music opened late last year in the Vista Plaza at 556 S. Vista Ave, near Jumpin’ Janet’s.
The Boise Weekly first spotted the new store in a profile just before Christmas. It offers a selection of vinyl in a small former clothing store location. Co-owners Matt Eggers and Derek Anderson started the store, following a passion for music, according to BW.
The shop operates just four days per week – Thursday through Sunday, for now. Modern Sounds sells, buys and trades music – and says they are also stocking a “growing selection” of newer music on vinyl, too.
“I kept looking at the space and daydreaming about it,” Anderson told BW. “I finally thought, ‘Why not take a shot or you’ll never know?’ If you’re going to do something in life it should be something you like.”
The latest entry gives Boise a trio of stores specializing in records. The largest – and oldest – remains The Record Exchange in Downtown Boise. Record World on Broadway Ave. also serves those looking for albums pressed to plastic.
Modern Sound Vinyl & Music is open Thursday and Friday from 5pm-9pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11am-7pm.
