Here is the full list of all the Record Store Day titles we have on order with our various distributers.

If it is anything like last year we HIGHLY suggest getting to the store early in order to get the releases you want.
There are no holds or pre-orders on any of these titles.
If you are from out of town and would like any of these, please email us AFTER April 17th, and we will see what we have left.
There may also be some last minute additions to this list.

Black Moth Super Rainbow has crept from the forests and cities to make this extremely limited, deluxe double vinyl version of Eating Us, their dark bubblegum freak-out from 2009. Recorded at Tarbox Road Studios, Eating Us marks the first time BMSR has ventured into a modern recording studio. This special Record Store Day version of Eating Us is spread over two, limited audiophile LPs, each with foil-embossed images. We don’t think this has EVER been accomplished before, much to the chagrin of pressing plants around the country! The LPs are housed in a gatefold, foil-wrapped Stoughton sleeve. Each record will be bagged and tagged with a hype-sticker letting the consumer know of the amazing and limited nature of this excellent Black Moth Super Rainbow collector’s piece.
IVER BON / PETER GABRIEL – COME TALK TO ME B / W FLUME (7”)
When Peter Gabriel called Bon Iver ringleader Justin Vernon and asked if he’d like to do a swap of sorts, it was an instant done deal. Vernon could have picked up a guitar and taken a standard approach to the cover, but that is not how a Bon Iver project works. Its very spirit has become collaborative and experimental. By enlisting the help of Bon Iver regular Sean Carey, as well his sister and brother in law, Vernon made this a Bon Iver affair, and expanded the Bon Iver family yet further. Jagjaguwar is f’n’a right humbled to be able to present this 7” single as Record Store Day Exclusive in the US.
