If Sub Pop have a record store in Seattle, Captured Tracks have one in Brooklyn, and Rough Trade andBeggars Banquet both started as record store/labels in London, then Flying Nun Records and Arch Hill Recordings figured they might as well have one too.

So we are pleased to announce the new Flying Out Record Store. Opening in Auckland on Record Store Day - this Saturday, April 18 from 9am.

Following on from the successful Flying Out online store, established 18 months ago, opening a physical retail outlet seemed the logical next step. Aside fromFlying Nun/Arch Hill titles the webstore stocks many other labels and artists - in fact, Flying Out even started it’s own imprint, producing vinyl and offering label services to artists and labels we liked, including US partners Captured Tracks and artists like Aldous Harding, Bunnies on Ponies, Little Bark and others.

As Flying Out has grown, and vinyl becomes more popular, increasing numbers of people were dropping into the office to pick up records, talk about music and generally hang out. Now Flying Out will have a dedicated place for that.

“Our basic job in music is to help people discover the best stuff” says Flying Out co-director Ben Howe, “it could be a double gatefold vinyl LP from a store, via an internet streaming platform, a song featured in a film or a band at a live show. Everyone finds music in different ways. With everything under one roof we can now provide for all of those options.”

"We are all music fans and community is an incredibly important part of what we do. Having a physical space to compliment our online community will help build this further," says Flying Out co-director Matthew Davis, "Plus it will be fun, who doesn't like hanging at a record store."

The new Flying Out HQ is a three level building, with a large stock room/event space basement, a shop on the ground level and the offices of Flying Nun Records,Arch Hill Recordings and Aeroplane Music Servicesupstairs. Between the various companies they can offer everything from music supervision, to PR, to label services, to distribution (local and international) and a record store. Plus, "pay what you want" coffee from the shop.

The address located at 80 Pitt St, Newton, Auckland, New Zealand. For locals, that is just off Krd - known for more than 30 years as The Shaver Shop. See you there!
