lovelovelove: Record Store Day shenanigans!

22 Apr

Yesterday was Record Store Day and my friend Cait and I had a blast! Before I get back to my new records tonight, I am currently listening to my friends radio show on 91.7 WKDU from 6-8, it’s a dance show called “Bass Is Loaded” and I love sending him songs to play. Last week I got to join him in the studio and it was a blast. You can listen now online here just click “Listen now” on the top right of the page. Yesterday was the perfect day, the sun was shining and I woke up ready to get some records. I went to my favorite record store in Philly which is also a cafe called Milkcrate. I got my favorite breakfast and was so excited to see that they got Jack White’s new album due out next week Blunderbuss in for Record Store Day. I picked that up with my breakfast, my first purchase of Record Store Day couldn’t be more perfect. I love Jack White and I couldn’t wait to get home and listen to the new album, so when I got home at the end of the day for dinner I did just that. I couldn’t help but dance the whole time, he is amazing and the new album is incredible. I must have played it in full last night at least 5 times. Cait and I then hit up two more record stores in the area, I picked up 3 cds, two Letters To Cleo albums (one of my favorite 90s bands), The best of Blondie, and two more 7″s from my checklist: The Hives “Go Right Ahead” and The White Stripes “Hand Springs”. Next, we headed to Main Street Music in Manayunk and I pick up my last purchase for the day, Dry The River’s “New Ceremony” 7″ (one of 500 in North America!). We also got to see Jesse Malin play live there! Cait and I made our way to a nearby local coffee shop and as we were there we saw absolute radio legend Pierre Robert walk in to get a coffee! I couldn’t believe it, he is such an inspiration I had to get a picture with him. It was the perfect end to a perfect Record Store Day. Soon after we left and I went home to make dinner and listen to all my new vinyl. I was super sad I couldn’t find Arctic Monkeys “R U Mine?” I was beat out by someone at both stores! But needless to say, I did pretty well otherwise!


obsessed xx: HAPPY RECORD STORE DAY!!!!!

21 Apr

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!


I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me. obsessed xx: Jack White “Love Interruption”

1 Feb

Good goddess!! It’s only February and it has already been an incredible year for music and music news. Jack White, utter genius who has been quite busy since The White Stripes called it quits, took time to write and record a solo record, Blunderbuss which is due out April 23 & 24th through Third Man Records/XL Recordings/Columbia. I love this first taste of the record and I absolutely cannot wait to hear more. I have always been a fan of Jack White and his many incredible projects. He is one of my favorite songwriters and I am so happy he decided to release a solo album for us to enjoy this year! You can pre-order the 7″ of “Love Interruption” here, which features a B-side not available on the vinyl entitled “Machine Gun Silhouette” which is due out February 7th.
