START YOUR EAR OFF RIGHT with RHINO and RECORD STORES!

Music is an important part of your year, and Rhino Records and the indie record stores in your lives are celebrating that with a special campaign to START YOUR EAR OFF RIGHT! Stop in to your local record store to get special limited edition releases on both CD and Vinyl (a few pictured below) and get yourself a coveted RHINO RECORDS calendar, while they last, as a free gift. You’ll find these calendars every year on record store and label office walls, and now they can be on your wall too, reminding you month after month how important music is to your everyday life, and how great it was to START YOUR EAR OFF RIGHT.

BOWIE LIVES!

In our memories, his music, his videos, his films, his art. We loved the collaborative memorial that came about at WILD HONEY RECORDS when they asked their customers to show their love for David Bowie through art. BLACKSTAR, his final album, and more of the records he created—as musician or producer—are available at record stores. So yeah. Bowie lives.

VINYL TUESDAY

Vinyl Tuesday is a way for us to encourage artists, labels, distributors and managers to continue to release physical music on Tuesdays when they can. This allows physical retailers to have something fresh to sell and to talk about during the week, and lets those releases not just get lost on the increasingly crowded Friday/weekend.


COMING TO RECORD STORES ON TUESDAY FEBRUARY 9th!



JAMES SUPERCAVE - Better Strange 
A white vinyl indie exclusive version of the new album.



COMING TO RECORD STORES ON TUESDAY FEBRUARY 23rd!



FREEDOM - Farther Than Imagined 
Digging through the Malaco vaults for the debut album from Freedom, containing hot dance tracks and smoldering ballads.  A prominent bass groove dominates the up-tempo tracks "Dance and Sing Along" and "Get Up and Dance."  As singers and players, Freedom's sweet harmonies prevail on "Summer Memory," "Wake Up Your Mind," "Know You Better," and "You've Just Got to Be the One." "Get Up and Dance" was later redone by Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five as "Freedom," by KRS One as "You Must Learn," and by SWV as "Anything”.  A classic!

SHOOTER JENNINGS - Countach 
Exclusive pink vinyl version of the upcoming record!

JASON ISBELL ON SMALL BUSINESSES AND SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

There are more small businesses in this world than you know. Jason Isbell went into one of his favorite small businesses recently, to talk about what it means to him, and about his very own small business. We think Jason has a way with words, even when he’s not setting them to music, and we think you’ll agree. Check out this special video and then to hear his words when they’re really lyrics, pick out his latest album, SOMETHING MORE THAN FREE.  It’s available at those independently owned small businesses called record stores around the world.
