RSD overview

Eclectic and wide ranging product list offers something for everyone this record store day

With Record Store day just over 2 weeks away and with 3 out of 4 releases this year on indie labels, some of the Record Store Day shops talked to the organisers about their pick of the releases. 
And with over 550 releases there really is something for every music fan from metal, indie or dance to country, folk and soul. Whether you are a long time vinyl enthusiast looking for that first edition or an unusual shaped vinyl or someone just discovering the joys of an independent record shop, this year’s list has a host of treasures to discover.
New material and first time vinyl releases to delight the fans
Some of the exclusive new releases attracting attention in particular include emerging singer song writer Courtney Barnett with her brand new track Kim’s Caravan on 12”. New material is also on the way from Glasgow duo Honeyblood with ‘No Big Deal’ released on 7” and something which also promises not to disappoint is Animal Collective’s 2005 EP ‘Prospect Hummer’ which is set to be released on vinyl for the very first time.
Beautiful vinyl for those mellow moments
Not only can you relax and unwind to some amazing sounds, these vinyl records will also grace the walls of any home.  At the mellow end of the spectrum, Bella Union are treating fans to a 7” of Father John Misty’s ‘I Love You, Honeybee’ on clear red heart shaped vinyl (swoooon). A facsimile of Anne Briggs eponymous 1971 album is also making an unexpected return and St Paul & The Broken Bones will be releasing an Alabama shaped vinyl of ‘Live from the Alabama Theatre’.
For the Dubstep and Soul fans
Turning it up a notch on the Dubstep scene is Machine Drum’s Vapor City Remixes on 12” from Ninja Tune Records with artwork by Dom Flannigan and Éclair Fifi for LuckyMe. Wilkinson & TC are also releasing Hit the Floor on a one sided 12” picture disc.
And over in the Soul corner, Soul Jazz records present Down Beat Special, a limited edition 7” box set with ten killer tracks from Studio One as Soul Jazz take part in Record Store Day for the very first time. Also released on vinyl for the first time is Northern Soul – The Soundtrack, on Double 180-gram numbered vinyl from Demon Records.
 Compilations and split 7 inches
And for those who just can’t make up their minds, there are a number of exclusive compilation records and split 7 inches to satisfy the ears. Alcopop have partnered with a number of labels to produce the ‘Sensible Record Labels’ compilation which will be available on red, black and yellow crush vinyl including a track from each of the labels involved.
Daughter and Warpaint have also joined forces and revealed they’ll be remixing one another’s work in a split 12” of  Winter and Feeling Alright.

Record Store Day takes place on the 18th April with over 220 independent record shops and thousands of music fans coming together to celebrate their unique culture and the art of music.
Record Store Day was conceived 9 years ago in the USA and was brought to the UK a year later.  Now in its 8th year and co-ordinated by the Entertainment Retailers Association and Spencer Hickman, the day brings together hundreds of the UK’s independent record shops to celebrate their own unique culture.  Exclusive vinyl is made available on the day and the stores often have live shows and other in store events to celebrate the day.
