We’re happy to welcome another new store to the Diggin’ Melbourne website. This time it’s a new store on High Street, Thornbury, just a stones throw from Thornbury Records, Records Etc and Music Jungle. Located at 594 High St, Thornbury, the new store is aptly named HIGH ON VINYL. The new store is specialising in vinyl only and currently stocks a diverse range of new and secondhand releases. There’s a nice selection of $5 / Cheap bins too. Hit their website for more info, or find them on facebook | highonvinyl.com.au
If you didn’t already know, there is a full afternoon’s worth of diggin’ to be had in the outer-inner-North these days. If you’ve spent the morning tearing up Brunswick St /Smith St / Johnston St, why not cross over Alexandra Pde and take on the Goldmine Stores on Nicholson St and St Georges Rd – then hit High St, Northcote for Rathdowne Records, Thornbury Records, Records Etc, The Music Jungle and of course High on Vinyl. From there it’s a quick trip across to Sydney Rd, stopping off at Multisonics, Muscle Shoals or maybe Lost & Found Market for a dig. Once you’re on Sydney Rd, you have Round and Round Records, Round Again Records and Record Paradise all at your disposal. And by no means are they the only spots to get your fix. Check Stereophonics on Nicholson St, Carlton North, and a notable mention to The Aquarium in Northcote who have a slim but tasteful selection of jazz, hip hop and electronica amidst their vintage clothing store.
Check the store listings page for more info, trading hours and more info about all the stores mentioned above.
