Tangent is a specialty retail store in Cairns selling physical media: vinyl records, books and art – things perceptible by touch.

We believe that in an age where vast amounts of media can be consumed quickly and cheaply, works that entertain, educate and inspire hold more value than ever in tangible form.

Tangent’s main focus is new music on vinyl, with a strong presence from Australian artists. We also stock a selection of music from Cairns based musicians on both vinyl and CD. You can view our range at the Tangent online store.

Our range of books is a small but eclectic mix including titles on music, philosophy and humour as well as classic novels.

Tangent also exhibits local art, with a new exhibition launching at the beginning of each month.

Listening, reading and viewing before you buy is encouraged. Pop in and discover something new.

Sign up to the Tangent mailing list for exclusive offers and updates on what’s going on in-store. We’ll never send any more than one email a week and you can opt out at any time.
