Harry Styles – Harry Styles (Self-Titled Album):  Who ever would have thought we’d be hearing a contemporary rock album from a former member of One Direction?  Harry Styles delivers big in his debut solo album, featuring the hit single “Sign Of The Times.”  Influenced by David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, and other classic rockers helped Harry form this unique rock-inspired album, and we love it!  Available as a standard CD and a limited edition HARDCOVER BOOK + CD.

Blondie – Pollinator: Back again with their eleventh studio album, Blondie reminds us how they became a dominant force in the rock world.  With a sound that has been shaped through the ages, Debbie Harry’s vocals are just as strong as they were 80’s. Available on CD and Vinyl!

Back again with their SEVENTEENTH studio album, Erasure proves that they are not out of ideas yet!  The group clearly has a statement to make, but only if you are willing to listen.  A little less on the dance side, this album is all about the music and we can’t get enough.  Available on CD and Vinyl.

April Update - New Releases/RSD 2017

Click on any paragraph to be taken to the product page in our online store! Links will open in a new window.


MADONNA: Unreleased Mixes, vol. 10 – We have to start with the Madonna releases!  Unreleased 10 is a remix album containing some of the best unreleased remixes of both classic Madonna hits and newer songs!  On top of the 10 new remixes, there are also 2 bonus demo tracks that were never released officially! 

MADONNA: 80’s DJ Promo Mixes – The official promo mixes to ten of Madonna’s greatest hits from the 80s compiled onto one CD!  These remixes are amazing.

Goldfrapp: Silver Eye – This masterfully crafted album has it all. It’s emotionally rich, enjoyably lighthearted at times, and overall fun to listen to.  Alison Goldfrapp is not shy to show off what her voice can do on these tracks which range from high energy dance beats to ambient electronic chill-out vibes.  Definitely check this one out on vinyl or CD!

Depeche Mode: Spirit – Never shy to speak their minds, the 2016 US presidential election certainly influenced the writing on this 37 year old band’s 14th album.  The classic Depeche Mode synths and beats paired with Dave Gahan’s instantly recognizable voice make this album feel both nostalgic and fresh at the same time. Check it out on deluxe edition CD, standard CD, and vinyl now!

Spoon: Hot Thoughts – We LOVE this album!  A little more daring than anything else the band has tried before, this album is a pop/rock masterpiece!  Fun at times, serious at other times, and extremely musically appealing, the band keeps its signature sound while also experimenting with more complicated chord progressions and studio techniques. Available on LIMITED EDITION – RED VINYL only available at INDIE record stores, like us!

DNCE: DNCE – Not a new release, just a notice that this (one of our favorite albums of 2016) is now available on vinyl!


It’s the tenth year for Record Store Day, and the third year Borderline will be an official participant!  Join us in our CHICAGO store on April 22, 2017 for EXCLUSIVE vinyl releases only available to officially participating stores on that day!  We will also be taking 25% off of ALL USED ITEMS in store!!

Happy New Year!


After celebrating the New Year, we at Borderline Music took a moment to reflect on the year we’re leaving behind.  We launched a brand new website, celebrated several in-store achievements, grieved the passing on of so many incredible talents, set a record number of online sales, threw fun in-store events, and so much more. 2016 was a great year here at Borderline – AND IT IS ALL THANKS TO YOU.

Your support of our store and small businesses across the country is the reason we can keep doing what we love – putting the best, rarest, and most unique music in the hands of thousands of people around the world.  Together with you, we have watched a “dead” media form (vinyl records) come back to life.

As a special thank you to our loyal customers, we’re making our ENTIRE ONLINE STORE 15% OFF until January 8th!  Just use promo code: SPOTLIGHT17 at checkout!
