Show tracks for Sat. Apr. 21/12 Record Store Day
Being a British music fan, Record Store Days are always a bit of an anti-climax being in North America. For the most part, releases just don't make it over here. The fact that some are so limited makes it even harder to track them down online. This year it was a pleasant surprise to be able to pick up 5 releases today.
Due to friends sharing some of their purchases we celebrate today by playing a large selection of them (or at least versions or other tracks by the same artists).
Maybe one year I'll be able to enjoy a Record Store Day in the UK and go nuts shopping.
There were some regular new releases as well like the new Primitives single. Been waiting a while for this one and it didn't disappoint.
