In celebration of the glorious media known as vinyl and the shops that still distribute it, every year there’s Record Store Day. If you head down to your record store on this wonderful day you’ll get not only a crap-ton of sweet deals and sales but you’ll also be able to get your hands on some exclusive releases that will only be available on Record Store Day. Most of the releases are fairly hipster or indie oriented but there’s a couple noteworthy ones to get you salivating.
The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, The Clash, Flogging Molly, Grateful Dead, Misfits, The Bronx, White Stripes all have a variety of LP’s, splits and 7″s coming out. You can view the full list here.
Otherwise it’s just and excuse to go out and paroose records for an afternoon, but do you really need one?
