Go crate-digging for Afrobeat to indie at this Lad Phrao record store.
What started as a coffee shop with a small vinyl corner has now moved to a new location at a proper shop on Ladphrao where the focus is purely on music.
The music at REC Records spans two genres, indie-pop/rock and world music, reflecting the different tastes of its owners, Kanyaweeratha Nara-Eim and Pairot Damkong. From Kanyaweeratha you’ll find Real Estate, Cut Copy, Warpaint and The Radio Dept., while Pairot’s selection covers Afro beat, Mexican beat, old-school mo lam and luk thung.
Order online or dig for vinyl in person at their shop and the upcoming Noise Market (Museum Siam, Nov 8-9).
