The shop has been around longer than we expected. News of the impending closure first arrived in February 2014.
The second-level retail space remains on the market. There isn't any mention of the rent on the listing.
Sounds joins the ranks of other CD/record shops that have closed on (or near) St. Mark's Place in recent years ... Joe's CDs, 13 CDs, Venus Records, Mondo Kim's, Smash, Norman's, Rockit Scientist Records...
