Amazing record store! Great selection of new and used CDs and records.
Never received one of the 2x records I pre-ordered from here. Emailed them after the release twice and did not hear back. I had to call them only to be told to "call back in 10 minutes." The person who handled the phone call basically complained about the online website (don't take online orders then?) and said they would get back to me. Meanwhile I asked to just refund the purchase since the record was limited release and I wanted to order it @ a vendor who has it in stock. Never heard back from Exile, and I ordered it before it completely sold out everywhere. They don't reply to email, don't seem to call back and don't care. Please refund my $34.98 you kept from a pre order you never fulfilled. I usually try to buy stuff locally when possible but I will 100% never come here again.
As a metalhead I find it somewhat difficult to find various copies of the bands I adore on both cd and vinyl. This place, however, is simply amazing. Great selection of metal (new and old) on both formats. They even have a limited selection of patches to throw on a battle jacket. Will be coming here from now on as my go to record shop.
Very chill environment. Its a nice little space to browse around for CDs, vinyls, and even some cassettes. Used and new. I was also surprised by the broad amount of music they have here. They have classic rock to mac demarco to dawn FM. They even have beach house (WHO I LOVE), car seat headrest too which was very very surprising. If you like indie, this is your place.
What can I say about this place..... it's like walking in a music store back in the day when we actually got excited about getting physical copies of our favorite artists.... highly recommended. Owner was super helpful and nice. They have so much cool stuff❤
