While music stores seem to be getting close to extinction in NYC, I was glad to have discovered Other Music, an independent music store selling CDs, vinyls and MP3 downloads, specializing in underground, rare and experimental music. I was there looking for Atom™'s Winterreise, with no success. I later figured that Winterreise has only been released in playbutton format, not in CD. But then I found Kangding Ray's latest release Or. I first started listening to Kangding Ray on last.fm a few years ago. Never expected to find his CDs. Thank you, Other Music, for the nice surprise. I will definitely make Other Music my mandatory stop when I visit NYC again.
