Record Store Day is Nigh

We grow amazingly close to Record Store Day, a day for all to honor record players and the "good ol' days." However, there are actually some pretty amazing releases coming tomorrow. Among the artists releasing brand new live CDs are My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Cold War Kids, Grizzly Bear, Pavement, Iron and Wine and Rivers Cuomo, among many more. Akron/Family, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Modest Mouse, and the Decemberists. Finally, Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be releasing their new album tomorrow on LP, and it's from what we hear, it's a real return to form from them. More importantly, this is a chance for everybody to honor their local record stores by going out and purchasing some great new music made available to you by artists who really care about the record business. I urge everybody to go out and buy something, and if you don't have a record player, then buy that on Record Store Day, and it can be the greatest Record Store Day of all.
