It’s happening again this year!
Record Store Day 2012!!
This will be my third year trying to get whatever “limited edition” records around.
Like previous years I made a list of what records I wanted to get and what I bought.
I understand some of the release will be available only in the UK and USA.
The Ottawa music stores that are participating are:
Here is a list of what I want to get my eyes on (in alphabetical order).
- Animal Collective – Transverse Temporal Gyrus. (RSD Exclusive Release)
In March 2010, Animal Collective and visual artist Danny Perez put on an installation called “Transverse Temporal Gyrus” at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
The music on this 12″ is a collage we made consisting of the original tracks, as well as live recordings made inside the Guggenheim before the doors were opened to the public. It will be the only physical format on which any of the music will be released. Coinciding with Record Store Day, we will also launch a website that recreates the audio computer program designed for the Guggenheim event. This will give listeners a new and unique collage each time the program is run. Danny Perez, who created the artwork for this 12″, will also create video content for the website consisting of footage from, and projections used in the original event.
- Arcade Fire – Sprawl II
- Beach House – Lazuli
- Bowerbirds – In The Yards
- Florence + the Machine – Shake It Out
- JEFF the brotherhood – Upstairs at United, Vol. 3
On October 18th, 2011, JEFF The Brotherhood joined by William Tyler (Tompkins Square), Loney Hutchins (Cleft Records) and Joey Plunket in recording Volume 3 of the Upstairs at United series. Each song in this session was recorded in a single take direct to ¼ inch tape then cut at 45 RPM for the ultimate listening experience.
- Lana Del Rey – Born To Die (Damon Albarn Remix) / Blue Jeans (Penguin Prison Remix)
Want to get it for those two remixes.
- M83 – Mirror
- Sigur Rós – Hvarf-Heim
Already loving Dirty Beaches’ cover of Françoise Hardy’s Tu Ne Dis Rien
Xiu Xiu does a cover of Erasure’s Always.
Both covers are very dark and gloomy.
- Various Artists – Arts & Crafts RSD
9 track Vinyl sampler featuring some remixes and a few previously unreleased tracks by the likes of The Darcys, Dan Mangan, Zeus, Gold & Youth, Cold Specks, Eight and a Half, Bishop Morocco, Snowblink and Trust.
Here is my list of what I want to get.
If I forgotten something, it will be post on what I did get on Saturday.
Happy Record Store Day 2012!
