Record Store Day: The Exclusive Pieces We Need To Have


Record Store Day 2011
is just about a week away! That’s pretty much all we’ve been talking about around here. But can you blame us? Just take a look at all the awesome, exclusive, limited edition vinyl that you can pick up at participating stores next Saturday.

Cults, Death Cab for Cutie, Deerhoof, The Dodos, Fleet Foxes, Matt & Kim, Midlake, Peter Bjorn & John, Regina Spektor, Will Self
, and Xiu Xiu are some of the most exciting pieces. There’s also a really neat 7″ inch series called The Side By Side Series which features a track from an original band coupled with a cover. Green Day tipping their hat to Husker Du with I Don’t Want To Know If You Are Lonely is the one my eyeballs are turning into hearts for.
