In rotation: 3/11/15

Fire up those wallets—the full list of Record Store Day 2015 releases has been revealed.

WFMU Record Fair Bounces to Brooklyn, Vinyl Fair Hits Queens: Good news, Brooklyn record hounds — you won’t have to venture into Manhattan, much less above 14th Street, for WFMU’s annual record fair, which was held at the Armory and the Metropolitan Pavilion in previous years.

For love of vinyl: Local collectors say there’s something special about listening to records. Fort Walton Beach resident Kyle Hock isn’t old enough to have spun a vinyl in their heyday of the 1970s. Yet, in high school he was inspired to start buying records when he saw his friend’s collection.

Johnny Marr covers Depeche Mode for Record Store Day: “[The song] kind of sounded like it suited my band really. I’m guessing we got some of it wrong, in doing it our own way. But that’s a good thing I think, when you tackle someone else’s song…You have to respect it in the first place to like it.”

In today’s digital world you can listen to whatever music you want instantly at the click of a mouse. So why are vinyl records more popular now than they have been in years? Shiny black round things: The UK is now home to just 291 independent record shops.

Stourbridge record fair to bring vinyl back: An “exciting” new venture by the organisers of Kiki and Honey’s popular vintage and retro fair will see vinyl return to Stourbridge next weekend. Kiki is teaming up with Henry Ratcliffe, a record enthusiast and collector, to bring the town a new record fair on Saturday, March 14.

Vinyl is back in rotation in the metro-east: A new music shop in Collinsville is just for the records.
