In Your Ear Records returns to Rhode Island

Four years after closing its historic Thayer Street location, In Your Ear! returns to the Rhode Island music scene at its new location at 462 Main Street in Warren, RI. After 19 years on Thayer Street in Providence, the storied music store shut its doors in 2004, the victim of spiraling rents and taxes, and the rush to legal – and illegal – music downloading. In the meantime, Chris Zingg, part-owner of In Your Ear, opened a separate store, Zingg Music, in the East Bay in 2001. Recently, Zingg entered into discussions with his partners about combining forces and retooling his store as In Your Ear. A deal was struck in early 2008 and the former Zingg Music is now In Your Ear.

As part of IYE's return to the Rhode Island market, the store will be revamped and restocked with an emphasis on new and used vinyl; the store in Warren will carry newly-issued titles as well as hard-to-find collectibles from the past. The store will also stock turntables, phonograph cartridges and record supplies as well as musical instruments and instrument supplies. In Your Ear will also continue to offer music lessons for guitar, bass and drums in its 5 studios.

While most large music retailers are only carrying top hit recordings, the store in Warren will continue its commitment to customer service through its in-depth selection and special-order service for new and out-of-print CDs and LPs. “If you can't find a recording, try us,” says owner Zingg, “We are proud to be part of the Warren revitalization. Come visit us and experience the last of the great record stores!” Established in 1982, In Your Ear has 2 other retail locations in Boston and Cambridge, MA.

the found music site
in case you are new here....we post irregularly to our favorite links to rare and live music available for download. we do not link to lossless files, as we are half deaf ourselves. we also don't host any files, as we do not comprehend the technology. we simply stumble across this stuff and share the links. please support all the websites and bands that do all the real work getting this music into your ears. all the sites listed below have more great music and content. most of these links will go dead at some point so grab the music while you can.

We are based out of Providence, Rhode Island. We offer no apologies, nor should you hold that against us. More info here on 75orLess at any of these web pages:

It's a reasonable question. The idea was born during our daily music chats, while discussing reviews we'd read. There was only one thing we consistently agreed on: they were too long. It seemed the point of how the music sounded and whether or not it was good was lost in an overlong mess of lyric quotes, personal accounts and a seemingly desperate attempt to fulfill a word count. Eventually someone said, "It's gotten to the point where if you can't say it in 75 words or less, you should shut the eff up". Within a week, 75orless.com was born. The best part about our limit is its reversal of typical music reviews. We limit the amount of words we use, and are not required to reach a number.

Welcoming electronic, hip-hop, indie, folk, punk, disco, pop, cock rock, math rock, brit pop, nu gaze, blues, garage, country, new new wave, rockabilly, idm, crust, techno, grindcore and all other music submissions. Where words with 2 letters or fewer do not count.
