Now would be a good time to click the play button to your left if you want to listen to a 2-hour long playlist composed soley of the music you are about to read about. Basically, this webpage highlights several April 2014 music releases and vinyl reissues. You will see helpful information to the right of each title like: genre (we do our best), vinyl color/weight, and/or relevant links. The links will either take you to a stream/free download of the title or our recommended purchase point. We will probably add titles throughout the month (especially singles) so checking back might not be a bad idea. There is a log at the bottom of this page which will describe any changes after the publish date. We are broadening our new music radar these days but right now you will see mainly independent music of the rock, hip-hop, punk, reggae, and (not enough) ska variety.

Our Top 50 Record Store Day Releases
Here is an organized list of our top (USA) Record Store Day releases of the year. We have combed through the official list and picked 50 titles that we are most excited about and sorted them into four categories: New EPs & LPs (non-singles), EP & LP Reissues (still no singles), Box Sets (some single sets), and 7" Singles (there's a lot of them). If you want to get your hands on some limited edition (and often colored) vinyl records
