Record Store Day 2014 is fast approaching (Saturday April 19th!). The annual lovefest for indie record retailers, the lifeblood of labels like us and often the anchor businesses for the "cool part of town," is one helluva party every year. Loads of sales, special releases only available in brick-and-mortars, and intimate in-store performances. SUPPORT LOCAL! SUPPORT INDIE!

Our 2014 RSD release is a Lydia Loveless 7" single featuring two never-before-released songs, including a brand new original and a Ke$ha cover on translucent neon green vinyl. (Lydia says that's Ke$ha's favorite color...we'll have to take her word for it). Listen to the Kesha song via SPIN here. Limited to 1000 copies and ONLY available in various participating Record Store Day shops.
