We are a small independent record shop in Ipswich dedicated to new independent music. Tram stocks a curated selection of contemporary releases from the finest independent labels in the world, providing a small sanctuary to browse and discover something new.
The reason behind Trams inception is simple. I wanted to buy new music from a local Independent record shop and couldn’t … because there was none. I decided to do something about that. On a limited budget though it’s starting on a pretty small scale. As much as I’d like to, I can’t roll out a ‘Rough Trade Ipswich’, so to start with Tram is calling ‘LoveOne‘ home and it’s here where we have our little shop. From this I hope we can grow steadily and reach the ambitious vision I have for the future of Tram.
Tram is all about Independent Labels big & small, and local too. I want to support what’s happening locally and bring it to peoples attention and like-wise for obscure labels the country over. I hope you’ll find records you’ve not heard of before and give a new sound a chance. It’s all about discovery and one sound leading to another. I’d love Tram to be a place where people meet up, swap recommendations, find like minded souls or just have a quiet lonesome browse.
Shopping locally can include online too so please support a local business.
