Beastie Boys Book
Amazon • $30
Because it’s not your typical music biography, and everyone under 50 likes the Beastie Boys. Adrock and Mike D, the surviving members of the seminal NYC hip-hop group, not only spill on their past — they also present a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys New York, mixtape playlists and guest contributions (Amy Poehler, Wes Anderson, Colson Whitehead).
Now Spinning Panel + Record Divider
Koeppel Design • $100
Vinyl lovers are showoffs — they’re certainly not hiding their collection. Enable their habit: This birchwood panel keeps track of what they’re spinning, and the A-Z tabbed organizers keep the rest of the records nicely organized. Groovy.
An American Treasure by Tom Petty
Amazon • $130
If you love Petty, you’ll hear something new. If you think you’re not a fan, this six-record box set — full of previously unreleased material, rarities and live tracks, along with photographs and essays about the legendary singer — will make anyone a convert.
MW07 True Wireless Earphones
Master & Dynamic • $299
M&D crafted these buds from handcrafted acetate and stainless steel. Style-wise, they’re more like cool sunglasses (particularly the tortoiseshell variation). And the sound? It’s never gonna match a wired, over-ear pair, but it’s crisp and the buds’ll block out the outside world.
Loft Stereo Console
Wrensilva • $3499
Equipped with a fully decoupled belt-driven turntable, 300 wpc Bang & Olufsen “ICEpower” amp and Sonos connectivity, it doesn’t get much better than the Loft in terms of bringing the crackly joy of vinyl to life in your home. Also doesn’t get much handsomer, if you ask us.
