Melbourne’s Funky Duck Vinyl is one of the most innovative new vinyl stores on the scene, launching an online store during Lockdown 2.0.
Although relatively new, they have a very decent range of records that’s steadily growing every week, and one of the cool twists about this place is not only do they sell new and used vinyl, but they also have a range of beer, wine and spirits which they pair with different LPs.
Some of the current pairings include: Teskey Brothers with Young Henry’s Apple Cider, Lime Cordiale with Stone & Wood Pacific Ale, Frank Sinatra with Gentleman Jack Whiskey among dozens more. Missy Higgins and Cosmo’s anyone?

This is clearly a business built for the Uber & COVID age. Not only do they sell on UberEats meaning you can get your vinyl and drinks delivered straight away, they also offer same day contactless delivery with a smile for over 100 Melbourne suburbs and next day delivery for 50+ more when you order through their website.
For the rest of Australia, they offer fast shipping for a flat rate of $10 for vinyl and $15 for vinyl and alcohol orders, but all orders over $125 receive free shipping.
Right now, Funky Duck have a special offer for Beat Magazine readers – they are giving away FREE shipping to the first 50 people who place an order over $20 when they use the code BEATDELIVERS before the end of the month.
While Funky Duck are online only and don’t have a physical store where you can go in and browse (you can still pick up your vinyl orders from their home office), they hope to open a storefront in the near future.
