SF record stores

(1/1)

Hi, all. I'll be in San Francisco for a few days. Are there any record stores you Bay Area locals would recommend for ambient music? In the past, I've gone to the Haight St. Amoeba when I'm in town, but it has been many years since I've visited that location and it might be a difficult one to reach since the transit system is down due to a strike. I'll mostly be downtown and in the mission district near Valencia.

BART is down, but MUNI metro should be an option for you.  I would take the N-Judah line and get off at Cole Street (just beyond the tunnel) and walk over to Haight.

Aquarius.  My favorite records store, bar none.

Thanks a bunch, gang. Those pics of Aquarius records look familiar. I think I've been there before! Getting excited.

Thanks for the tips, all. Just got back from my SF travels and managed to visit Aquarius (Mission St.), Amoeba (Haight), and Rasputin's (Haight). Amoeba was the jackpot store of the bunch, having extensive electronic, experimental, and new age sections to explore (in addition to the standard fare). Rasputin's was worthless. :(

Picked up some nice bargains that I'm looking forward to digesting this week:

Sylvain Chauveau - The Black Book of Capitalism (Type)
Maps and Diagrams - Get Lost (Time Released Sound; non-deluxe edition)
Stray Ghost - Those Who Know Darkness See The Light (Time Released Sound; non-deluxe edition)
Pleq/Spheruleus - Quietus Gradualis (Time Released Sound; non-deluxe edition)
Deepchord presents Echospace - The Coldest Season (Modern Love; gave away my old copy)
Ingenting Kollektiva - Lost Beyond Telling (Invisible Birds)

I'll prob post a line or two about these in "now playing" as I digest them.
