Singapore is hot on that hipster trend and the number of record stores now seems almost record breaking! If you are looking to go old-school and actually put a needle on a record, you’ll need a turntable first. House of Turntables can help, and gives you a choice of 1,000 plus records to boost your collection too.

At Vinylicious, new vinyl is added weekly to an already 3,000-strong collection and Hear Records has a listening corner where you can spin sounds before you buy.

Now to genres: Red Point Record Warehouse stocks classical, electronic, Chinese and indie from the ’60s to ‘90s, although indie fans shouldn’t miss Curated Records in Tiong Bahru. Metal heads will shake their heads in wonder at Inokii’s collection at the Far East Plaza and vintage lovers will swoon at Memory Lane’s racks of ’70s pop and ’60s jazz, including rare and limited editions. Find them at The Adelphi on 1 Coleman Street. How does that sound for starters?
