Record Store Day is coming up on April 18, and I was reading a list of artists who are contributing, and saw Blitzen Trapper listed as having a 7" out that day, but no other information. Matt, can you confirm/deny, and give us some details? Thanks!
Yo, the 7" is a couple of older recordings, both rad songs: War is Placebo b/w Booksmart Baby. The A side was part of the abortive Waking Bullets record, B side was recorded as part of something Earley ended up calling "Wooden Dress and Dresser Set", the same source as Going Down and Shoulder Full of You off the tour EP.
I had not heard of the band before, but liked the name. In the spirit of Record Store Day, I took a chance and boy did it pay off. Not only is it a beautifully looking record, I love the music as well. The free digital download voucher is a great bonus. Way to go BT and Subpop!
dvp - you don't shop at House of Records in Eugene? It's an old house they turned into a record store, each room has different stuff in it. It's pretty cool. I drive down from Albany every now and then. I've come across some sweet finds there. Bootleggs, hard to find stuff in general, some very nice older original vinyl, I always find more stuff than I have money for.
The last time I was there I found the Built To Spill Caustic Resin 10' EP, I had only seen it before on Ebay. I've also got some very cool Queens of the Stone Age bootleggs and Import compilations I had never seen. And the help seems pretty cool, no attitudes, that I've noticed anyway...
Has anyone seen copies of these "Record Store Day" albums still in record stores at all?
On April 18th I BARELY remembered it was happening until like the last second. Only thing I was able to score was MMJ's "CelebraciÃ³n De La Ciudad Natal"
I'm sure I could hit up eBay, but j/w if it would be as easy as popping into some store downtown and checking it out.
