We’ll tell you a little bit about us. We aren’t the best multi-taskers. For instance, we often prefer silence when writing versus having a lot of noise around. Yet, even with this defect, we now and then get inspired by a local artist or something as simple as a bass line of an old song.
And before you know it, we find ourselves writing along to the downbeat of a tune. It’s what inspired this post and many others.
A little more about us, and many of our friends, there simply is no better audible sound than that which comes from vinyl. There are a few good record shops in the cities but it’s hard to top the experience you’ll get at Hymie’s Vintage Records on Lake St.
Whether it’s their inventory of tens of thousands, the famous people who stop by, or their three listening stations with cozy furniture, Hymie’s is more than just welcoming, it’s a musical oasis. Laura and Dave Hoenack run the joint, with their sidekick shop dog, Irene.
Even though it’s not that big, Hymie’s doesn’t feel crowded, it feels cozy and this old classic should keep spinning for awhile.
