In addition to being a label, Beacon Sound operates a record shop in Portland. We carry used and new vinyl across all genres in our brick-and-mortar storefront, with a particular focus on contemporary electronic, indie rock, and modern composition/experimental music. We also carry a selection of cassettes and print ephemera, including The Wire magazine. We've been named one of the top 10 record stores in Portland and one of the top 10 electronic record stores in the USA.
By design, Beacon Sound is a community of like-minded people, a home for all sorts of happenings, a platform for cultural activism, and a facilitator/instigator of unexpected connections.
Beacon Sound is distributed worldwide by Forced Exposure.
