plan 9 music


new location, new sign. carytown’s record, cd, and dvd store, plan 9 music, has been doing really well since they moved across the street. the space is more condensed and therefore looks better. and while the employees were packing up to move, they came across this circular sign from the 80s, which appeals more to the passerby.

inside, plan 9 is rows and rows of music. from newly released vinyl of alabama shakes and mumford & sons to $1 dirty dancing soundtrack records, there’s something for everyone. there’s a record player in the back on which to try out some new taste, but the cashiers are more than happy to play it over the store stereo too. you can’t beat the customer service.

those guys know what they’re talking about when it comes to music. every time I’ve gone in and bought records, they strike up a conversation with me about the music and about the artist. they know what their customers like, and posters advertising for concerts and festivals are pasted all over the counter and outside to expand the music culture of richmond.

plan 9’s customers buy mostly vinyl, but they boast a cd and dvd collection too. there’s even a vintage magazine shelf and huge posters from richmond folk festivals of prior years for $5.

plan 9 is cool without even trying to be cool. having been around for 31 years, they’re well-versed in music and specifically, music in richmond. so peek in, flip through the records, and you just might try and buy something you never thought you would, like reggae, jazz, or even r&b/rap. and that’s just what they want you to do.

Listening to the new album by Jamie Lidell in our Richmond shop today…sounds like Prince meets Jamiroquai meets Cameo. So. Good. So. Funky.
timmyozone:

Electronic astrofunk (spacey, funky, new-age etc.) artist Jamie Lidell dropped his Self-titled album 02/18/13 via Warp Records. Never heard of this dude’s stuff until this release, but according to a quick google tells that he’s been active for like a decade and that’s what’s up. This record made me make up a word astrofunk to describe how it sounds lol so that should be an indication that I dig it tons. Anyway if you like various electronic music, funk music, or spacey 80s synth music. This joint definitely deserves a listen.
Tracklist/ Album Cover:
I’m Selfish
Big Love 
What a Shame
Do Yourself a Faver
You Naked
why_ya_why
Blaming Something
You Know My Name
So Cold
Don’t You Love Me
In Your Mind
fav tracks= Big Love, What a Shame, Do Yourself a Faver, You Naked, Blaming Something, So Cold..
