Obsessors of vinyl (and music in general) – don’t forget to mark your calendars this Saturday for the 3rd annual Record Store Day. You can find a list of participating shops here though I’m pretty sure any of your local stores carrying vinyl are on the list. The giveaways and limited vinyl releases are far too many to list. If you are in the Philly area and out on the prowl for wax treasures Saturday you might bump into me at one of these fine joints. Say hi:
Princeton Record Exchange – 20 S. Tulane Street, Princeton, NJ 08542
Siren Records – 25 E. State St., Doylestown, PA 18901
Repo Records – 538 South St., Phila, PA
A.K.A. Music – 27 N. 2nd St., Phila, PA
Tequila Sunrise Records – 525 W. Girard Ave, Phila, PA
I’m totally digging White Guys With Beards – awesome logo, great name, tasteful content – throw it in the pot with the great fuzz-pop/chillwave/glo-fi connoisseurs, Weekly Tape Deck and Stratosphering. On the right-hand side of the main page you’ll find links to the first 2 compilation releases curated by WGWB Brian. Download em’ gratis while you still can and pre-order the Vol. 2 cassette tape for 5 bones. Uh-huh. I said ‘cassette’.
There’s instant gratification to be found in Totally Nebular’s wood-nymph-i-will-slay-you-with-my-pan-flute-if-you-dont-get-out-of-my-goddamn-way-core and it will have you swaying and daydreaming, helping you power on through your miserable work day. They want you to download their album for free to see for yourself.
Eddie from Totally Nebular is also known as Forest Clay to a select few of his friends. If you were paying attention you saw his video for Nook on this week’s Monday Morning Tape. If you have a heartbeat you’ll want to download his Vernal Pools album as well. Gobble gobble.
