Records Store Day Releases - 2009

Andrew Bird / Loney Dear split 7" (Polyvinyl)

Andrew Bird did a tour with Loney Dear and they've put together a very interesting split 7". This release is a limited edition of 1000, on black vinyl with hand silk screened covers. This split 7" has Andrew Bird covering Loney Dear, and (you guessed it) Loney Dear covering Andrew Bird.

Akron/Family - Everyone is Guilty 7" (Dead Oceans)

"Everyone is Guilty" is the first single from Akron/Family's upcoming May 5th full-length release, Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free. Featuring album opener "Everyone is Guilty" along with non-album b-side "Total Destruction". Opening with a groove unlike anything Akron/Family have ever laid to tape, this single kicks off a new chapter for the band. The percussive thunder and anthemic electric guitars make a bold statement, touching on everything from Fela Kuti to Sly and the Family Stone in under six psychedelic minutes. This is not the Akron/Family you think you know.

Slayer - Psychopathy Red 7" (Sony)

The first new music since 2006's ferocious Christ Illusion, "Psychopathy Red" is a blast of proper thrash metal by the band that invented it. The track is inspired by the truly heinous Russian serial murderer, Andrei Chikatilo, and if this is any indication of where Slayer's heading with their new album (Summer 2009) then, once again, no one is safe.

Mixing live concert footage with band interviews, it takes the viewer behind the scenes of Wilco's 2008 US tour capturing both the expansive experience of rolling across America in a tour bus and the intimacy that happens night after night between the members of Wilco and the music they make, and between the band and their fans who come to experience it with them.

Whiskeytown - San Antone / The Great Divide (Geffen/Outpost/Mood Food Records)

“All I remember is what we had to drink and Skillet and Ray Duffy’s preoccupation with fireworks. Out in the parking lot across the street from Park Ave., the Roman candles and Black Cats sounded a lot like I’d hope we’d one day — pretty little things all set on fire waiting to get destroyed.” — Ryan Adams, June, 1998 This very collectible 7" comes from the highly acclaimed band of the alt-country/No Depression scene, who launched the careers of four-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter-guitarist Ryan Adams as well as that of fiddler-singer-songwriter Caitlin Cary and singer-songwriter-guitarist Phil Wandscher. • Two previously unreleased tracks recorded in 1996 • Pulled from the Baseball Park Sessions • Produced by Chris Stamey

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz LP (Interscope)

YEAH YEAH YEAHS are back back BACK! The New York City trio are poised to release the follow-up to 2006’s “Show Your Bones”, an album described by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke as “above all, a textural triumph, a quantum bounce from the brittle jitter and insect-chatter fuzz of the band's 2001 Yeah Yeah Yeahs EP and 2003's full-length Fever to Tell. It's as if the Velvet Underground had gone from the black-crusted minimalism of their first album right to the pop bloom of their fourth, Loaded.” Overseas, NME called it “one of the albums of the decade.”
