"The Vinyl Comeback... It’s All About Albums at the Fashion District’s Pop Obscure Records"

"DTLA's first and only record store Pop Obscure Records has opened right around the corner from the Historic Core District, and its photo gallery and live stage space make it a hub for music lovers and all tourists alike."

"About three-quarters of the way into Pop Obscure’s downtown L.A. record store is a section where even the hippest of hipsters, nerdiest of music nerds and indier-than-thou are rendered clueless and confused. Here you'll find albums by Melbourne, Australia's badass experimental noise makers Dandelion Rectum alongside new releases from Detroit’s legendary house mavens Temporary Diva, Oakland rap duo Mumble Core and D.C. hardcore legends Inflict the Misery.Heard of ’em? They all sound familiar, right?"
