4 Must-Have Accessories For Any Music Lover


The thought of a life without music is too crazy for us to even think about! If you’re also a passionate music fan, then you know how exciting it is to splurge on a new gadget, book, or album release. Luckily, music lovers are spoiled for choice at the Centre, with tons of options to play and learn about. We’ve narrowed down our favourite music-themed items that will keep you rocking all day (or night) long.

For the collector: We're loving the resurgence of records, as music-lovers gravitate towards vinyl more and more. If you’re the type of person whose idea of a good time involves hanging out and listening to music, then you need to invest in a quality record player. You know better than anyone how satisfying it is to collect records – with their beautiful oversized album art – in today’s digital age, and you appreciate the timeless quality of vinyl’s unique sound. We’re currently spinning How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful by Florence + The Machine.

For the entertainer: Love to throw parties? Then you need a light-up speaker in your life. It syncs perfectly with your Spotify or Apple Music playlists, and you can listen to tunes from anywhere you like, whether the party is in your backyard or up on the roof. Between the eye-catching design and high-quality sound, this speaker will set the mood, and might just cause a living room dancefloor to appear! Live it up, and don’t forget to snap a few photos while you’re at it.

For the reader: The well-read music fan knows how relaxing it is to chill out with a cup of tea and flip through a great book while your favourite album plays. We think it’s fascinating to read about legendary musicians and peek into their exciting lives. Admiring the glossy behind-the-scenes photos and learning about iconic moments in music history makes us feel like we were there, and nothing beats that feeling – except maybe a concert. ;) There are so many interesting books and magazines to choose from at Chapters, so don’t be surprised if you spend all day browsing.

For the music geek: We don’t want to add more fuel to the Rolling Stones vs Beatles debate, but all you music buffs out there will surely have an opinion. (We’re currently reading Beatles vs. Stones by John McMillian to prepare ourselves for future conversations!) If you enjoy writing about music, have your own blog, or are an aspiring musician yourself, then you’ll need a notebook to keep track of your thoughts and write down any song or lyric ideas of your own. A killer pair of headphones will ensure you’re getting the crystal clear audio you deserve, no matter where you are.
