Celebrate Record Store Day 2024 at Modern Sounds Vinyl & Music in Boise, Idaho

The next Record Store Day is on 4/20/2024!

Here at Modern Sounds Vinyl and Music, we’re counting down the days until Record Store Day 2024! It’s a day that embodies everything we love about being a part of Boise’s vibrant music scene: discovering new sounds, connecting with fellow music enthusiasts, and celebrating the unique experience of independent record stores. This passion for music is exactly what fueled my dream of opening Modern Sounds.

From Dream to Reality: My Passion for Tangible Music

Opening Modern Sounds wasn’t just a business decision. It was a dream come true. Ever since I was a kid, flipping through record bins and buying my first albums, I knew I wanted to create a space where music lovers could share that same passion. In 2019, I opened Modern Sounds part-time, but when the pandemic hit just two months later, I faced a turning point. During that closure, I took a leap of faith and committed to Modern Sounds full-time.

More Than Just a Store: Building a Music Hub in Boise

Modern Sounds isn’t just about buying and selling records; it’s about fostering a love for music in physical form. We pride ourselves on our laid-back and welcoming atmosphere. Our curated selection of new and used vinyl caters to all tastes, from seasoned collectors seeking rare finds to curious newcomers just starting their musical journey. We’re here to guide you, recommend hidden gems, and help you find the music that speaks to your soul.

Boise has a rich musical heritage, and we’re honored to be part of its vibrant tapestry. We believe a city thrives when it offers a variety of independent voices, and Modern Sounds provides a unique space for music lovers in Boise. Whether you’re a die-hard vinyl enthusiast or simply enjoy browsing a carefully chosen selection, we offer an alternative to the big box chains, a place where music takes center stage.
