9 Releases | Record Store Day

April 20, 2012 at 2:16 pm 3 comments

Record Store Day begins tomorrow. Yes, in part it’s another consumerist ploy to get people out and buying things. But on the other hand, it’s also about supporting good music and those mom-and-pop shops in your neighborhood that you’ve come to love. Many of my favorite artists and labels will have special releases available and the list is endless. So, here are nine of my choices for Record Store Day releases, in no particular order. – David D. Robbins Jr.

1. St. Vincent: “KROKODIL” 7-inch (4AD)
These are two new songs from the band, two oddly named tracks called, “KROKODIL” and “GROT”.

2. Xiu Xiu / Dirty Beaches: Split 7-inch (Polyvinyl)
Xiu Xiu cover Erasure’s “Always” and Dirty Beaches cover Françoise Hardy’s “Tue Ne Dis Rien”.

3. Beach House: “Lazuli” b/w “Equal Mind” 7-inch (Sub Pop)
First single off their upcoming album, “Bloom”. Blue vinyl, along with an non-album track, “Equal Mind”.

4. David Bowie: “Starman” 7-inch (Virgin Records)
This is a RSD exclusive on 7-inch picture disc. It’s the Top of Pops Performance of “Starman”

5. Deerhoof/of Montreal: split 7-inch (Polyvinyl)
A split single titled will feature tracks from both groups, including of Montreal’s “Feminine Effects”.

6. James Brown: “There It Is / Pass The Peas” 7-inch (UMe)
“Pass the peas / Pass the peas like we used to say it!” Hard not to feel pumped hearing that intro on your record player.

7. Public Image Ltd “One Drop EP” (PiL label)
Public Image Ltd confirm their first new material in 20 years will begin with the EP “One Drop”. John Lydon describes the track as: “One Drop is a reflection of where I grew up in Finsbury Park, Lon-don. The area that shaped me, and influenced me culturally and musically, a place I will forever feel connected to.”

8. Skip James “Devil Got My Woman” LP (Vanguard)
Yeah, you’ve read it correctly — a 12-song 1968 James LP newly remastered from the original tapes. No “Cherry Ball”, but it does contain cuts like “Devil Got My Woman”, “Look at the People Standing at the Judgment” and “Illinois Blues”.

9. School of Seven Bells: “Kiss Them for Me” 7-inch (Vagrant)
School of Seven Bells cover Siouxsie and the Banshees.

    I plan on going to my local record store and buying a record. Even though I’ve already done that twice this week! ;)

    This is a guilt-free listening zone. We've built relationships with bands, artists, labels and PR firms to give you the best in new music. All songs on this site are sent to Their Bated Breath directly from the artists, their PR firms, their record labels, or are available via stream. Thanks so much to all of them.
