A box of discounted vinyl quickly lures the King Street walker into the abundance of music in Newtown’s Repressed Records. Local and imported vinyl, focusing on underground and independent titles is the store’s speciality. An extensive collection of local tunes makes Repressed Records a great go-to for obtaining new releases. There is also a vast range of well-considered genres, many of which are second-hand, from Classic Rock to Punk, Hip-hop and Jazz. Vinyl is sold amongst quality cassettes that display harder to find DIY and underground selections. New and second-hand books and a large range of Repressed Record merch, consisting of t-shirts, totes bags and stickers are also on offer.
