  • New York's Best Record Stores - 2009

    “Beyond a broad selection of indie-rock staples, this Greenpoint haven houses an inviting selection of jazz and funk—the store was personally recommended to TONY by the founders of Daptone Records. With its wooden floors and cute handmade signs, Permanent Records is a cozy spot—you feel like they actually want you to be there.” link

  • Time Out / The Dap-Kings

    Neal Sugarman and Gabriel Roth of The Dap-Kings recommended Permanent Records to Time Out as one of the best places to score quality vinyl. “When I was growing up, this is how music stores used to be. It was a real social experience. They’re just turning people on to albums, which is different from used-record stores where you have a bunch of diggers who are hoarding the stuff they’re into.” link
