We’re not short on cool record stores around Perth (we even made a list for them, which is now due for an update ), but the newest edition to the scene may just be its most aesthetically – and aurally – pleasing.
Shari-Vari Records, underneath the State Structures in Perth’s CBD, is a curated, one-of-a-kind import record store specialising in a quality-over-quantity selection of new plus used vinyls traversing ambient, experimental, house, techno, soul, disco, reggae, dub, African and Brazilian genres.
It’s the particular brainchild of Patrick Little, who moved to Perth a few years ago and set up the Shari-Vari Information Online Store , and for the short while had a small selection on sale at SHOP MAN-TLE .
This in turn has led to an opening at the particular State Buildings and an opportunity in order to expand his real world offering and following, while still providing that specially-curated selection of sounds he’s come to be known for.
And while the shop’s a little bigger than his previous pop-up, it’s still the particular perfect size for people to pop in on their lunch break for a quick browse, while Little is always upon hand to offer his own thoughts on what’s new, perhaps offering up something you might never have heard associated with, but may fall in love with, along with plenty of classics.
Shari-Vari Records can be found on the bottom level of the State Buildings and is open 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
