Record Store Day 2012

For any vinyl lover, Record Store Day is always pretty excited and highly anticipated. This year it falls tomorrow. Record store shops up and down the UK will be hosting live bands, selling exclusive content and perhaps doing lots of other lovely things.

This year, as usual, there is a whole heap of amazing artists releasing exclusive content. Here is a few of my top picks of that content. Head down to your local record store to pick up some of it and find out more about record store day here.

Laura Marling releases an exclusive 7″ single of Flicker and Fail with B-Side To Be A Woman (not previously released).

Arcade Fire release this 12″ featuring Sprawl II, my favourite track from their last killer album The Suburbs.

Beach House release a new track from their upcoming record ‘Bloom’. The track is called Lazuli and is another lovely dose of Beach House-y dream pop.

Edward Sharpe release a 7″ single of Love One Another. The track is taken from there new album which is out in May and is called ‘HERE’.

The wonderful Civil Wars are releasing the song ‘Dance me to the End of Love’ on 7″ with b-side ‘I Want you Back.

And so much more! Check it out here. If you are in London, head down to Rough Trade East where there is loads of stuff going on all day including an instore from Johnny Flynn.
