A couple of years ago, I was displeased with Record Store Day. While I’m all for the prospect of saving record stores and the music industry and centering a holiday of sorts around the idea of getting folks out to their nearest mom and pop music shop, I’m a rural music fan with no record stores within two hours of my home. This makes obtaining RSD exclusive release a major pain, usually involving scouring eBay after the fact in the hope that a release is available without an inflated price.

This year though, there was a bit of synchronicity that worked out in my favor in ridiculous luck. This year, I will be in Cincinnati on April 20th to see Death To All, which means I’ll have access to a couple of different RSD participating locations. Lucky for my collection, unlucky for my wallet.

If you find yourselves within proximity of a participating record store on April 20th (find out here!), then here is a list of relevant exclusive vinyl releases that you may find of interest:
