Pie & Vinyl - record shop, pie shop, cool place

I don't normally plug shops but I recently discovered Pie & Vinyl in Southsea, Portsmouth. I can't speak for the Pie, but they have a decent stock of new records.

From their website:

"First of all I’ll talk about the music. We aim to specialise in new music and new artists. We have a rough policy of stocking albums released within the last two years, which will be available in all formats but predominantly vinyl.

Vinyl has come back in a big way, and not many people know that it’s become almost industry standard to include a free mp3 or cd of the album when purchasing  an LP. For us, this is the ultimate way to purchase music as you can hold the product tightly, admire the artwork whilst being able to play the music on your hardrive [sic] device. A little piece of history you own, with a story of how you bought it or maybe a memory attached to it forever.

Feel free to visit the Record Room at the back of the building. But before you do, take a moment to look around you… for the artwork of the vinyl records is as important as the music. Our new releases are found displayed on the wall as you enter pie & vinyl, while a selection of our current favourites are found towards the back room where we hold the majority of our collection."
