Our Picks for Record Store Day 2013 (April 20th)

Local record shops serve an important cultural role by connecting people to their local scene, local businesses, and to the broader world. It’s for this reason that since 2007 the third Saturday in April has been devoted to Record Store Day. The now international holiday is celebrated by labels and artists of all sizes and genres with the release of unique titles and reissues that encourage people to get out and buy--most of which are not available elsewhere. The official list of releases has been announced and we’ve gone through and picked out the titles that we’re most excited about. You can find the entire list here, and the list of participating Seattle stores here (everybody from what I can see).
