Happy Record Store Day!!
Hope those who went to every local record stores got what you wanted.
Like last year’s Record Store Day, my first stop was at Vertigo Records in Ottawa.
I got there and four people were already in line.
Then around 9:30am the line got longer and from what I heard it was like about 50 people were there.
It was a jungle when the Vertigo Records opened at 10am.
I rushed as fast as I can to get what I wanted to get.
Overall it was a mere 15 minutes in the store.
Here is a list of what I bought.
Caribou – Swim Remixes [Only 1000 copies were made]
Listen to Jamelia (Gold Panda Remix) (via)
Death Cab For Cutie [I heard Vertigo might have had three copies. Mostly a sampler of the new album coming in May.]
Kate Bush – Hounds of Love (Collector’s Edition) [the most expensive of what I bought, just for the four songs and it’s a pink vinyl. Only 1000 copies were made & limited to one copy per customer]
The Luyas/Twin Sister [Just love the cover!]
Listen to Twin Sister – Meet The Frownies
Mumford & Sons / Laura Marling [Was curious about this one since Mumford & Sons are on it]
Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues (via)/Grown Ocean single. [Since the album got leaked, considering it’s the only song I like in the album so why not buy it]
Villagers/Charlotte Gainsburg [This one had 500 copies made, so I had to get this one!]
Listen to Memoir (via)
Warpaint – Undertow/Warpaint [Forgot that was out and I love the song Undertow. The 7″ is blue]

Somehow I wonder, this event can’t really help save the music industry. What can?
