As if we hadn't hyped it enough in a piecemeal fashion, we now have the opportunity to share with you the official list of Record Store Day releases that you can get your grubby little mits on in a little under a month. On 4/20, there will be everything listenable on wax, CD, and tape under the sun, and this year you can take a look at the list in two handy ways: as either a PDF for your printing pleasure if you hate the environment, or in a dropdown list at RSD's site. There are a few obvious choices for what you need to put on your shopping list, but here are some that we recommend:
Willie Nelson “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die” 7″, released on special green vinyl
Chelsea Wolfe / King Dude Sing Songs Together 7″
Kill Rock Stars: The Cassette Compilation: 3 Cassette Box Set
Bon Jovi Bon Jovi Live 12″ picture disc (lol jk)
Shearwater and Sharon Van Etten “Stop Draggin' My Heart Around” b/w “A Wake for the Minotaur” 7″
The Notorious B.I.G. Ready to Die Rhino 2 x 12″ LP (white vinyl)
Along with releases from Thurston Moore & Loren Connors, Garbage and the Screaming Females, Orange Juice, Atmosphere, Phosporecent, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., and of course, Double Dagger, it's going to be a really big day. Come out and support, jabronis.
