The new album from JENNY LEWIS is coming out later this month, and select indie record stores have a little sneak peek, as well as a little financial incentive: a brand new CD single from Jenny Lewis that houses a $2 coupon for the brand new record THE VOYAGER when it comes out (DISCLAIMER)
The new HYPNOTIC EYE from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers has fans chomping at the bit, and record stores are going to keep the waiting from being the hardest part with a special CD single (two A sides!) that also comes with a $2 coupon of the new record later this month. (DISCLAIMER)
Morrissey’s long-awaited new album WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS hits record stores next week, but super-lucky fans who hit select record stores this week and get a very special coupon to use for that release—one that comes in a 10” vinyl package and also happens to include four new Morrissey tracks. This piece is SUPER, SUPER limited, and will go fast, if it hasn’t already. (DISCLAIMER)
Bob Mould gathered a real cast of characters for his newest music video, and the one we love the most is the Portland indie record store MUSIC MILLENNIUM! Mould’s new record, BEAUTY & RUIN is on sale now at record stores everywhere.
Record Store Day 2014 is in the books, and we wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who went out to the stores on Saturday, April 19 to support and celebrate them. We hope you found something you loved to take home with you, whether that was something released exclusively for Record Store Day or something fantastic from what they regularly stock. Yes, every day should be Record Store Day, so we encourage you to make stopping by your favorite record store a regular thing, and make stopping by this website a regular thing because we’ll be telling you about awesome things going on at record stores all year long.
We’ve gotten a lot of requests for the lists of past Record Store Day releases, and we’re happy to announce our HISTORY section, where those lists from 2013, 2012 and 2011 Record Store Day and Back to Black Friday live. (We’re working on older lists, and we’ll get them up there as we get them completed.)
Sometimes there are even better reasons to get your music at an indie record store, and those times are when you get a little something extra along with your new record. The goodies below are available starting on street date with the purchase of the new release they are listed with, but they’re ALL LIMITED QUANTITY, so first come first serve applies. Also, indie stores are just that: independently minded, and not all will choose to participate in all these gift-giving promotions, so check with your local store!

STREET DATE 07/08 GOATWHORE Participating stores will have a bottle opener to go with the new album CONSTRICTING RAGE OF THE MERCILESS Free while they last. (DISCLAIMER) (BUY IT AT A RECORD STORE)
