This is the last one, the final cherry on this impressive sunday of record store mania. We’re exhausted. Showing this much love will certainly drain the normal human being.
We chose one of our favorite record stores to close out the festivities, Euclid Records in St. Louis, Missouri. We’d muster up a sizable ode, in couplet form of course, to this wonderful store, but our arms are tired from typing, our hearts spent from giving love. We can only say this, these guys fucking rule.
Euclid Squadron roll out.
