Butter Beats

Butter Beats ( is smaller than Rocking Horse, but does away with the CDs to focus on vinyl, tees, books and street art supplies. The staff are into their music and street art, and the selection is focused on collectables, fuk, soul, jazz, reggae, punk and…well, just ask! If they don’t have it, they’ll get it!

Jet Black Cat

Jet Black Cat ( have been doing their thing since 1982 when vinyl was, well…it. Very indie and alternative, they’re also very committed and will get in anything that you’re hunting for. They do vinyl as well as CDs,  music merchandise and the occasional live gig and listening party.

The Record Exchange

The mecca of pre-loved vinyl, The Record Exchange ( allegedly holds the largest collection of LPs in the southern hemisphere. It certainly feels like it when you’re in there, and we’d recommend setting aside a couple of hours to wend your way through the masses of albums on offer. It’s a place to stumble on a classic, hidden gem or just a reminder of long gone days.

1/65 Adelaide St, Brisbane QLD 4000
