Crosley Sterling Turntable

Crosley Sterling Turntable

We really dig the trapezoidal 1950s inspired styling of this retro record player. Like other Crosley turntables, it’s portable and has built-in speakers, but we think it looks best parked on its matching stand. Available with or without Bluetooth capability.

I don’t you jumping… unless this music’s thumping. The talented musicians of Pomplamoose turn in a great cover of one of our favorite tracks by Cake, the 2001 hit Love You Madly. While we miss the brass of the original, we dig this funky and fresh arrangement too.
