RECORD STORE DAY DROPS 2021 & WISHLISTS x2:
RECORD STORE DAY 2021 DROPS ARE JUNE 12 & JULY 17:
Our plan for the days are still to be determined but as always our primary goal for the day will be to get you the records you are seeking as safely as possible. Thank you for your support. Stay strong & have #hope.
WISHLISTS FOR BOTH DAYS CAN BE MADE HERE (deadline for BOTH DATES is 5PM Wednesday April 14th).
NEW THIS WEEK AT THE SHOP:
- the new album from high-pony queen ARIANA GRANDE is called 'Positions' and I'm guessing she doesn't mean yoga, in the shop on coke bottle clear vinyl
- vinyl editions of big recent releases are also in from BUSTA RHYMES, JOJI, and YUNG GRAVY. Delicious.
