Rhody Gem: In Your Ear Records

November 2021


What it is:

At this quintessential stop for music lovers, browse new and used LPs and CDs, instrument supplies, stereo equipment, and other music-related items.

Where to find it:

Right on the Palmer River, next to The Guild’s new Warren brewery, the Water Street shop is easy to spot by the smirking portrait of a man with his fingers in his ears on the signage out front.

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

No matter what scene you follow, it’s easy to lose hours rifling through the endless albums In Your Ear has collected over the decades. They’ve been peddling everything from heavy metal to punk and new rock in Rhode Island for the past 40 years, though their move to a sun-filled spot on the water is more recent and offers space to expand the collection. “We specialize in hard-to-find items at reasonable prices as well as a wide selection of new music in almost every genre,” explains owner Chris Zingg, who’s also open to buying or trading for music collections of any size. Though perfect for stumbling upon your next favorite artist or rediscovering vinyl from the past, a search service allows customers to find specific items that may not be in stock or take advantage of online ordering.
