LITTLE RED BUTTON STORE DAY 2015 April 15 2015, 0 Comments
Record Store Day is right around the corner and WOW OH WOW is it gonna be a good one! We're looking at slabs by The Replacements, Lemonheads, D'Angelo... BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY DIARRHEA PLANET/THOSE DARLINS AND PUJOL/METH DAD. LET'S PREVIEW THOSE NOW!
Our buddies at Easy Sound Recording Company are celebrating their first birthday on Record Store Day by teaming up with our favorite middle-of-the-woods festival, Pickathon, to bring you a fucking dope Diarrhea Planet and Those Darlins split 12". (In fact, this is how they're kicking off their new monthly series of limited-release vinyl with super rad double-sided album art by Travis Bone of Furturtle.) Watch Diarrhea Planet's Pickathon performance of "Spooners above (as premiered on NPR Music a couple weeks back) and then jump over to Paste Magazine for a full tracklisting and singles from both sides. The retail version of this release will be limited to 500 black vinyl records. For a truly live experience... well, DP's outta town, but Those Darlins will be playing Grimey's at 1 PM and it's gonna be a blast!
Our buddy PUJOL has one of the coolest RSD releases we've had in a while. They recorded a new arrangement of "June Bug" (see the KEXP session above), made a 5" lathe cut of the single, and are gonna recreate it at their show at Queen Ave on Record Store Night. Meth Dad (who contribute a song to the b-side), JAWWS, and BZRK are also playing, so you know both the record and the show are gonna be tight. (If you can't make it to that one, they're also playing Third Man at 2 PM!) Jump over to CMJ for a great interview with PUJOL and DO NOT miss this 5" if it's at yr record store! It's a Limited Run / Regional Focus Release from PUJOL's own Bartertown label.
PLUS! Catch JAWWS & King Bitch, along with a ton of other great bands, at The Groove, starting at 1 PM. (Stream King Bitch's new album above -- it's pretty different from their first tape, but SO GOOD. Get into it! And pay whatcha want!!) PLUS X2!! We are doing a couple last minute DJ sets at Fond Object at 5:40 & 6:40 PM so come see Savoy Motel and Promised Land Sound and then stick around for our massive collection of Prince singles! Alright!
