My Record Store Day Picks

Tomorrow is every vinyl addict’s favorite day – Record Store Day. Think of it as Black Friday for wax. There are many awesome releases this year – you can check out the full list here. Show up early, fight the crowds! Throw elbows! And if you don’t get what you want, buy something anyway and scalp it on eBay like a BOSS. Here are some records I’m thinking about picking up.

Beach House – Lazuli B/W Equal Mind
Garbage – Blood For Poppies
JEFF the Brotherhood – Upstairs at United Volume 3
Katy Perry – Part of Me (Thin White Duke Remix)
