Artfully curated and edited records from the popular to the truly discoverable •
Records are profound, intimate, empowering. On the shelf, they demand space, on the platter, they demand attention. Some people spend their lives record collecting and searching and we love rescuing those collections: separating, cleaning, and sending them into the world again. Vinyl has a kind of emotional currency that’s hard to find elsewhere, except maybe in books. We’ve loved records most of our lives, but of course, we’ve loved music all of our lives.
Meet Jenny and Joe of Hi-Phy Records.
Jenny simply can’t remember a time without music. Every day is a mash of listening, sentimentality, and ritual. Driving to work: music. Working: music. Taxiing kids: music. Loafing after work: music. Brushing teeth, reviewing tomorrow, crawling into bed: music.
For Joe, it started with Marty Robbins’ Greatest Hits (Vol. 4), at his grandparents’ house. The disc went on, and music came out. It was simple and he was hooked.
