I love record stores for discovering music.

Not-so-much in the mode of rifling through stacks and dropping needles.

But, for witnessing the shopkeepers’ currently spinning selection.

I’ve stumbled onto so many rubies in this way.

Over the years.

As was discovered the mysterious and entrancing XVARR – Echoes of Time at the wonderful Matéria Prima, on November 24, 2019.

Sincerely yours,
