New pop-up record store opens in north London

The pop-up will run between February and March

A new record shop called Ecstatic Peace Library will open in North London.

Running for six weeks, the pop-up store is the brainchild of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, Edwin Pouncey, and Soho Radio's Pete Flanagan, and will be at multi-use venue, 96 Church Street.

As well as records, the store will stock various pieces of artwork and vintage clothing, as well as posters and books.

Ecstatic Peace Library is open now, and will be at 96 Church Street in Stoke Newington until the 14th March.

Vinyl sales in the UK hit a record high last year, according to the British Phonographic Industry. The BPI's study found that 4.3 million vinyl LPs were sold in the UK in 2019, which is a 4.1 per cent increase compared to the previous year.

Caribou donated a few hundred records to the Dalston branch of Oxfam earlier this month.
