I always strived to be the kind of record store clerk that I loved; one that started an interaction with questions about what “I” liked. The best ones could always find that perfect complement or stretch to a favorite genre or artist that slid open portals to entirely new worlds of sonic discovery. A good record store clerk will ask you if you need assistance and if the answer is no they will give you the space to dig freely at you’re pace.
Listening and discovering music is your unique path. Don’t let anyone dictate where that path leads you based upon what “they” think is cool. Just listen to your heart and try to stay open to what resonates with it.
