Seasick Records is a record store located at 4420A 4th Avenue South in Avondale Mills Shopping Center in Avondale. Daniel Drinkard and Chayse Porter opened the store in November 2013.

The original location of the shop was at 4513 5th Avenue South, next door to Southern Skin Divers Supply in Avondale. Drinkard made reference by the title of The Jesus Lizard track "Seasick", in relation to the dive shop nearby, as a name of the business.

In June 2015 the store relocated to 5508 Crestwood Boulevard, in the Shoppes of Crestwood. The pop-up barber shop, Newman's Classic Cuts, moved with them to the new store. In 2020, Seasick and Newman's moved to a larger space in a portion of a former Family Dollar in Avondale.

Seasick Records hosts frequent album release events, and hosts large "Record Store Day" parties. The shop buys from Secretly Distribution, and has worked with Sloss Fest on promotions.
