Nothing better than scrolling through Discogs checking out your fave platters within financial reach (and those that aren’t) before dropping them into your basket and dreaming of giving them their debut spin in your room… before you’re rudely shocked when you check those often eye-watering shipping costs.

Well, the good news is Australia now has it’s own vinyl marketplace a Sydney-startup and their Sound Shelter platform that boasts over 100,000+ listed bits of vinyl goodness and has already knocked over a couple wins in the form of chart collaborations with Levon Vincent, Insolate, Patrice Scott, Kai Alce, Norm Talley and more!

The catalog of wares is constantly growing as it’s inbuilt AI tracks stock from a number of independent record stores locally and around the world meaning you’re often getting first dibs and at reasonable costs without the exxy mark ups – pretty much a computer doing the crate digging for ya.

It still is early days though so be sure to check out the site here and shoot any feedback to the Sound Shelter team and/or if you’re selling records reach out and see if you can get plugged into the system!
