happy record store day

Happy Record Store Day everyone!!! Here are some of my top picks this year:

GlassJaw: Worship And Tribute
This is the one record I am looking forward to the most—available for the first time on vinly, it has been 10 years in the making—so fucking stoked for this!

Daft Punk: Tron Soundtrack
Coolest packaging/picture disc ever!!!

Hüsker Dü/Green Day 7"
It’s fucking Hüsker Dü... need I say more?
Featuring "Don’t Want to Know If You Are Lonely" from Candy Apple Grey and Green Day’s cover of it.

Fleet Foxes: Helplessness Blues/Grown Ocean 12"
Two tracks off of the band’s upcoming record, Helplessness Blues, out on May 3rd, only get it if you really can’t wait for the release of the full-length!

Nirvana: Hormoaning EP
First time this EP will be released in North America.

OFF!: Live at Generation Records 7"
I really can't get enough of this band, this 7-inch features 4 tracks recorded at Generation Records.

Deerhunter: Memory Boy 7"
"Memory Boy" single with a previously unreleased track "Nosebleed"—I have yet to hear a bad Deerhunter b-side.

Villagers/Charlotte Gainsbourg 7"
Side A is "Set the Tigers Free" from Villagers’ gorgeous record Becoming a Jackal, while Side B is a song written by Conor J. O’Brien and performed by Charlotte Gainsbourg... should be good!

If you live in Toronto, all of the above titles are available at Criminal Records—Please go support your local music stores!
