One of Paris' best vinyl shops, Balades Sonores sprawls over two adjacent buildings. The ground floor of 1 av Trudaine stocks contemporary pop, rock, metal, garage and all genres of French music. Its basement holds secondhand blues, country, new wave and punk from the '60s to '90s. Next door, No 3 has soul, jazz, funk, hip hop, electronica and world music.
It's also a great place to pick up vintage memorabilia (posters, T-shirts etc), new turntables and streetwear such as hoodies, and info about upcoming gigs and DJ sets.
