Record Store Day 2018

By: Sun Noor

This years Record Store Day (RSD) will take place on Saturday April 21st. What exactly is RSD you question? It consists of a day where most artists treat their fans to exclusive records with never-before heard music from b-sides and remixes to rarities such as demos, new or original pressings and limited edition records on coloured/splattered vinyl. Evidently, it’s the music lover’s most cherished. The whole purpose of the event is to support independent record stores, as these releases cannot be sold anywhere else for the most part. However, one thing to keep in mind is that those goodies will sell out quickly and will most likely not be available proceeding the event.

Here is a list of 25 records that I’ll be looking out for to add to my collection this year:

  1. A-sides Soundgarden
  2. Etchings From Francis Trouble by Albert Hammond Jr
  3. Legacy EP by Arcade Fire
  4. Sea of Split Peas Double EP (picture disk) by Courtney Barnett
