20 Apr

As stated on the 18.3.13 post – RSD is upon us. There’s absolutely tonnes of good stuff happening today. Celebrations over the globe rejoicing in vinyl!
2013 kicked off with 78 percent more vinyl record sales than the previous year –  and to add sugar to the figures, 500 plus records have been exclusively produced for the days events – which is a definite incentive for fans to get their hands on limited editions.

Check it out. Here are links to news and events:

I think it’s only a good thing to keep the Record Shop alive and kicking in the sea of online and downloads. I always get great service and tips from the local Jamarico Record shop and RecRec here in my adopted hometown; Zurich. So I’m pleased have come across the ever nearing Record Store Day site. Check out the nearest store to you on: http://www.recordstoreday.com/Venues?
The following stores are also taking part right here in Switzerland:

Plattfon Records Stampa Bookstore   Basel VISIT WEBSITE
Mandrake Jazz & Comix   Lugano VISIT WEBSITE
outsider musicshop gmbh   Olten VISIT WEBSITE
Ventilator Records   Winterthur VISIT WEBSITE

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April. http://www.recordstoreday.com


“I buy CDs all the time. I’ll go into a record store and just buy $500 worth of CDs. I will! I am singlehandedly supporting what’s left of the record business.

I hate to see record stores disappear, and I’m old-school in that I think you should pay for your music. But what my kids do is download a lot of things, pay for them, and then if they love something, they’ll get the CD. That may be the future.”

Brian Eno and Grizzly Bear will release a limited edition 12” for Record Store Day, featuring Nicolas Jaar remixes from their landmark 2012 albums ‘LUX’ and ‘Shields’.


Chris Taylor, Daniel Rossen, Ed Droste, Chris Bear (Grizzly Bear)

Grizzly Bear was started as a solo project by Ed Droste in 1999. Their Debut album   Horn Of Plenty, 2004, was raved about and given top marks from various music press – they have a serious following in the Scandavian countries. 

Here’s their abstract on Alternative health perhaps – Gun Shy – their latest offering this of 2013.
