*Warner Bros. Records have announced their releases for this years ‘Record Store Day‘ event, which falls on Saturday, April 20th. Among those...

Built To Spill: “Live” – Two-disc vinyl LP and CD Deluxe Edition – Limited to 2,500 copies

An absolutely stunning collection of seminal Built To Spill songs recorded live during the band’s 1999 “Keep It Like A Secret” tour. Originally released on April 18, 2000, on both vinyl (on Up Records) and CD (on Warner Bros. Records). The vinyl configuration initially contained two bonus tracks “Forget Remember When” and “Now and Then,” which have now been included on the limited-edition CD in celebration of this release and Record Store Day. Naturally, it’s cut for vinyl at Bernie Grundman Mastering especially for your sonic delight.

Deftones: Live: Volume 1 – Selections from Adrenaline

Songs from Adrenaline hand-picked by Deftones and recorded live at Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo, New York, on Oct. 13, 1996. The initial release in a series of seven vinyl exclusive releases with the first release being a Record Store Day exclusive and the last planned to be a Black Friday independent exclusive retail release. Finally, the light of day has come.

This year’s Side by Side Vinyl Series features The Stooges ’69 classic track on one side and The Black Keys updated 2002 take on the flip side pressed on orange & red sunburst vinyl. Very Limited so grab it before it’s gone for good.

The Flaming Lips: Zaireeka- Four-disc different colored vinyl 12″ – Limited to 7,500 copies

Fans and critics agree that this is one of the most important and invigorating experimental albums in contemporary pop music. Four discs, designed to be played on cue and simultaneously, producing nothing short of a symphonic experience. Re-mastered by the band especially for this release at Bernie Grundman Mastering in celebration of this record and Record Store Day 2013, with unique art and packaging limited to this release. Once these are gone…they are GONE.

*[press release] Hidden Cabins formed as a collaborative idea, trading home-demos in the early Winter of 2012. Writing a few songs turned into an entire set and rehearsals ensued at the turn of the year into 2013. The duo consists of Craig Cirinelli of (Damn) This Desert Air/The World Concave/Elemae on vocals, along with Brian Hofgesang of Books.../Maya's Ruin on acoustic and electric guitars and vocals. This isn't you're typical two piece folk act as they turn up the volume and get creative with effects pedals, amps, vocal trade-offs and harmonies, while injecting a healthy dose of gut and grit into their melodic songs. Hidden Cabins record their first set of songs to be aimed at a 7-inch record, at Portrait Recording Studios this March, as well as plan on stamping their namesake onto stages near and far in the year to follow.
