With the hipster-driven surge in vinyl record sales comes the need to keep those records in as good a condition as possible. Enter Wes Oishi's SoundSource. Since 1980, it's been the go-to destination in L.A. to find slick, exotic, resealable outer sleeves (and, lately, custom bicycles) imported straight from Japan. The sleeves provide for the care and protection of your 7-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch records, CDs and DVDs; there are even resealable sleeves for cassettes. There's nothing like the crisp, satisfying sound of a record slipped into the safety of a sleeve. And just because you like to keep your things nice doesn't have to mean you have OCD. 5663 W. Pico Blvd., Mid-Wilshire, 90019. (323) 857 5701, store.soundsourcecds.com. —David Cotner
