    August 17th 2013 we were the only record shop in NYC to host an advance listening party for the new Sebadoh album “Defend Yourself.” Joined by band members Jason Loewenstein & Bob D’Amico, we spun a signed test pressing throughout the day and then gave that copy to one lucky attendee.

  • CBS New York

    listed us as one of the top 6 record stores in all of NYC. “Make sure you check out their Facebook and Twitter pages—what really makes the trip to Brooklyn worth it is when Permanent Records does promotions like the ‘Free LP Box.’ As you probably guessed, they have boxes of LPs that are absolutely free!” 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

  • Mashable

    Great write-up from Mashable about our big move to South Slope. Seriously, one of our favorite articles about P-Recs EVER! link

  • New York Mag

    “The vinyl collection is curated by owner Marjorie Eisenberg, who brings in new stock every week. The rock and jazz sections are well represented, and if you’re in the market for a record player, the store carries those too. “If you have twenty bucks, you can get a lot of stuff,” says Eisenberg.” Link

  • Why I Love NYC

    Time Out featured Permanent Records as one of the highlights of Greenpoint, calling it “a great record store—a great place to kill a few hours.” link

  • Yelp

    “So far the best, most inviting vinyl store in New York I’ve found. They offer fair prices on trade-ins (I always go for credit), there’s a decent set up available to test out everything but sealed new LPs and $1 bin stuff, and it’s in a great, laidback location. It’s also one of the cleanest record stores you’ll ever see. The bins are easy to rifle through and you don’t have to hack up dust bunnies when you leave.” link

  • Critical Reviews

    “If you are a record collector, or just in the mood for some new tunes stop by Permanent. If you can’t decide on something I’m sure that they are full of recommendations.” link

  • 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.”

  • Citysearch

    “The store has a great selection of vinyl and new and used CDs, plus the staff lacks the hipster snark that makes some record stores (ahem, Earwax) unbearable.”

  • wync

    “Owner Marjorie Eisenberg, who moved the store from Long Island in May of 2007, stocks the store full of great deals on used cds and LPs. They also carry a small selection of, mostly current, new titles.”
