Histoire

The Telegraph emerged gradually over the course of year ten of the twenty-first century in the small but mighty city on the Sound: New London, Connecticut, United States. Already functioning as an independent label and promoter in the region, a physical store became a necessity for the burgeoning music scene that at the time was busting at the seams featuring the likes of Fatal Film, The Hempsteadys, The Reducers, Paul Brockett Roadshow, Brazen Hussy, Pocket Vinyl, Marvelous Liars, Can Kickers and many more.
 
The store has a large, well-curated collection of vinyl records both new and old representing all genres including but not limited to punk, reggae, rap, rock, country, folk, blues and jazz on 7”, 10” and 12”. You’ll also find cassettes, cds, dvds, and other musical ephemera throughout. There’s turntables, speakers, boom boxes, and other devices for your listening pleasure. Telegraph also boasts the best used book collection this side of the Thames.
