Brixton has seen a revival in Record Stores recently, with Pure Vinyl opening earlier in the year and now Container Records finding home in Pop Brixton.
Built from shipping containers, Pop Brixton sparked controversy on it’s opening, with many complaining its rates of rent opposed its ethic of supporting start up and independent businesses. However, with the resurgence of vinyl being at it’s strongest since 1996, Container Records seems a fit addition to the miniature village.
Stocking electronic music (both dance floor and experimental), Punk, Indie, Hip Hop and soundtracks, Container Records will be open 7 days a week and will run from 11am–7pm Sunday to Wednesday, and 11am–8pm Thursday to Saturday. The store will also buy and sell second-hand records, sell T-shirts and gig tickets, and host the occasional event in its space.
