I wonder if anyone knows of a CD shop in Madrid that sells "alternative rock" - i.e something along the line of Daniel Johnston, Mojave 3, Frank Black, +/-, My Morning Jacket, The Strokes, Swell, the Raveonettes, Califone, the Shipping News, Calla...?

I know that I can get some of the big names at Madrid Rock, and Discos del Sur have some stuff but I need MORE! Any ideas?

There are a few rock speciallised shops close to Gran Via, around Leganitos st., Santo Domingo ...
I don't know if they'll have those alternative rock groups but my friends used to buy imported heavy metal cd's on the 90's (not edited in Spain)

Tora, I'm assuming you now live in Madrid, in which case I would suggest ordering the CDs through the internet, maybe even get a good deal through ebay or some music dealer's website. Or maybe you can "discover" smilar styles of music locally in Madrid. I like Depeche Mode, but when in Spain, OBK is an excellent subtitution.

I went to a record/vinyl shop called La Metralleta that probably had some alternative stuff (I was mainly looking for Spanish 1960s garage rock) that was in a parking garage. They have a CD-only (I think) store near the FNAC near Puerta del Sol. I am pretty sure the address for this one is Plaza del Angel, 4. You can't miss it once you find the little alleyway to it. It seemed like they had alternative bands cds in the window, and I think they sell both new and used. Hope that helps.

Yes, La Metralleta is beside the Descalzas Reales convent, in the same square.
