Ugh: Etherea Records is closing



Karate Boogaloo brings us the awful news this afternoon at Stupefaction: After 13 years, Etherea Records is closing shop on Avenue A next month. Expect nice savings on everything there until then.

As KB notes: "I'm sad, as this is yet another record store biting the dust. One less place to drop by. One less place to discuss music face to face with actual other human beings."

Meanwhile, could someone please hit me over the head really hard with a shovel? Thank you.

Wasn't there recently news about an increase in record sales.

There was a report about an increase in the sales of vinyl which is nice but relatively low in the overall scheme of things. The reason Etherea is closing isn't entirely about the state of business.
