The big day is finally here and, as always, we have our own unofficial celebration planned. This year will be a little different due to the increased focus on buying limited edition vinyl albums. So in addition to our usual selection of free downloads, we also have a handy list of cool vinyl release for those who are unable to nab any of the official Record Store Day releases from participating stores. There’s colored vinyl, albums with bonus goodies, and plenty of other stuff that sure to satisfy your inner vinyl snob:
The Waitiki 7
Mr. Ho’s Orchestrotica
The Evil Streaks and The Vooduo
The Coffin Daggers
Death Waltz Records
The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society
And if you are in the mood for more “defunct” media formats, here are some cassettes:
Although all but the first band’s releases are priced in pounds, but it’s possible the artist will try to figure out a way to let you pay with some other kind of currency if you contact them through their official websites. It’s worth checking into. In addition to being able to boast about your imported albums, Graveyard Calling’s special “make your own cassette” deal seems too good to pass up.
But what would Record Store Day at Gravedigger’s Local 16 be without freebies?
Jerry Vayne knows how to make haunted house soundtracks rock and he’s got the downloads to prove it!
There are many free songs from Witches in Bikinis and their side project Alien Surfer Babes available at ReverbNation. If that’s not enough, the Witches in Bikinis website also has some more freebies for you!
We also have a bunch of “Name Your Price” downloads for you to enjoy:
Although you do have the option to download those for free, we hope you show those bands some much needed love. Rob Potylo would definitely appreciate it (especially if you watch this as well).
Happy Record Store Day!
