Today I am in my favorite record store in Philly, Milkcrate, starting the morning off right with some breakfast and new vinyl! Today is my favorite day of the year (besides the 4th of July) because today is Record Store Day. One day of the year set aside for us to celebrate our local record stores and all the new and special edition vinyl releases of our most loved artists. Today I am picking up an early copy of Jack White’s Blunderbuss here at Milkcrate, then I am taking my checklist and trying to get as many as I can from all the record stores in Philly. Here are some of the tracks and vinyl I am most excited to pick up. Check for your local participating Record Store Day stores here and make your own checklist of new and special releases here!
Arctic Monkeys “R U Mine?” / Domino Records / 7″ / 1340
The Hives / “Go Right Ahead” / No Fun AB / 7″ / 1800
The White Stripes / “Hand Springs” + “Red Death at 6:14″ / Third Man Records / 7” Black and Red Swirled Vinyl
Dry The River / “New Ceremony” / RCA / 7″ Vinyl / 500 in North America!
There are so many more epic new releases I would love, it might be too hard to choose! All I know is I am excited for the free shows today at Main Street Music and new vinyl!! Not so excited about looking at my bank account after… Have a great Record Store Day everyone! Don’t forget to hug (or just thank) your favorite record store owner!
