Last week we listed the Discogs’ Record Store Day Staff Picks. This weekend, we all went out hunting for those exclusive Record Store Day releases. Some of us slept in, some of us bought CDs, some of us waited in line for 4 hours, and some of us went digging in the dollar bin. Whether […]

Discover: The Top 10 Krautrock Albums

When I ask my father about why he loved and bought psychedelic records back in the 60’s and 70’s, he tells me it was all about the discovery. Well, that’s not entirely true — the first time I asked him why he bought those records, he said something I won’t repeat here, but let’s just […]

5 People. 4 Hours. 3 Records. An Oral History of Waiting in Line on Record Store Day

The Foodie. The Fashionista. The Collector. The Pessimist. The Worker. These were the 5 people that surrounded me as I stood in line at Music Millenium for Record Store Day. When I arrived at 7:35am, the line was already 5 blocks long. In the interest of passing time, I documented the conversations around me as […]

Record Store Day 2015: Joshm1979’s Vinyl Scores

I had a full day scheduled, so rather than traipse all the way downtown from the wilds of the SW metro, I headed up to Everday Music to see what might still be lying around. I did find 1 RSD release that was on my “if I find it and it’s not crazy expensive, I’ll […]

Record Store Day 2015: Myarrow’s Vinyl Scores

I waited in line at Jackpot Records only to find out that the RSD release I was looking for was sold out. So I picked up these instead: Kendrick Lamar, “To Pimp A Butterfly” La Luz, “It’s Alive” Then I texted Grippo who was in line at Music Millenium and asked him to look out […]

Record Store Day 2015: Seburns’ Vinyl Scores

We got out late to go to the Mt. Tabor dog park and on the way passed Music Millenium on Burnside, which still had a lengthy line at 11:45 AM. After some dog park shenanigans, we headed to Clinton Street Records. Which was closed. So, I ended up digging at Crossroads, which I don’t think […]

I hit up 2nd Ave Records a little before noon and found some great non-RSD releases (couldn’t find the two RSD that I wanted): Flying Lotus, “You’re Dead” BadBadNotGood, “III” Madlib, “Shades Of Blue” I then decided to head to the (now) only other record store downtown and found the Jon Hopkins/Nils Frahm 10″ I […]

Record Store Day 2015: MarbleheadJohnson’s Vinyl Scores

I woke up this morning around 9 am, and saw there was a line five blocks long at Music Millenium — the mere thought of this made my head hurt and required another hour of sleep to erase this image from my memory. When I finally fell out of bed, I went to the Discogs […]

Record Store Day 2015: Jcrosen’s Vinyl Scores

I had some friends in town, so I was hoping to stop into a shop and make a quick score on Saturday, but I’m a London RSD n00b and didn’t realize just how packed it would be. There were lines for most of the stores I walked by and any that didn’t have lines had […]

Record Store Day 2015: Susan.salkeld’s Vinyl Scores

​I was visiting my brother in ATL for RSD. He loves vinyl as well, and although we were wiped out from being up late sharing music, we got up at 8 and headed down to Wax N Facts. We both had a list of things we wanted, and as we stepped up to the counter, […]
