Criminal Records Rocords

Josh from Criminal Records recommends:

Spiritualized - Pure Phase / Lazer Guided Melodies

"These albums were a long time coming and were rumored for a long time so a lot of people are excited they're here. They were influential on music that came afterwards."

The White Stripes - De Stijl

"The first few albums were reissued at an affordable price. This album is a little sentimental because they now cease to be - a sort of tribute, I guess."

Nas - Illmatic

"Surprisingly this is one of our best selling albums and after we put it in the window sales went even further up. Something about it catches people's eyes."

Josh ends our conversation explaining that "albums in the window are constantly going in and out... it's like a constantly changing entity"
