Going against all notions of economic common sense, Eric Lanzillotta from the Anomalous label/mail order business and Ri Be Xibalba and Tanith Lanzillotta from the band Forest of Grey have just opened a shop called Dissonant Plane. A music retail establishment. That doesn’t sell popular music. In late 2008. Ballsy.
From Eric’s email:
What you will find here is a store selling things [CDs, DVDs, books] you won't find in other places in Seattle. [We specialize] in black metal, free improvisation, avant-garde classical, experimental, ambient, and many other regions. Our stock is small so far, but growing all the time and includes a lot of special items, including many out of print items from the archives of Anomalous Records.
My wallet just wept a little.
