This store mostly specializes in electronica genres. I got more out of this than my best friend but I appreciated what they had to offer. The staff were amazing, patient and helpful with my questions. Everything is well organized which made things easy for me to navigate through. more

Phonica was the best record store to get techno and house on vinyl. The store included a feature where you could listen to albums and tracks on a computer, which is nice, especially when the record policy is that you can only listen to 6 physical records.

Phonica makes an attempt to make the music and those that make it more... more

Only electronic records to speak of.

Clerk couldn't tell me if the portishead record was a uk release and didn't know boards of Canada. On top of that he didn't offer to answer my questions about their boards of Canada records. He just said, I don't know. more
