When Repressed Records moved from Penrith to Newtown 16 years ago, they knew they were setting up shop in the right scene. Famous for its vast vinyl collection, the store specialises in independent Australian music and always has an interesting range of music from around the world you won't find in your run-of-the-mill music store.
Biggest sellers include names like Royal Headache, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Bed Wettin' and Total Control. Never heard of any of these bands? That's fine — the team behind Repressed are always happy to make recommendations to ease you into one of the most underrated music genres of all time. The store also stocks knick knacks like carry bags and books from local artists — and other niche things.
