Happy Record Store Day!
Happy Record Store Day friends!
It's the morning of Record Store Day over here in New Zealand - meaning it's not too far off for the rest of you presumably?
First things first - the winner of the Trouble in Mind Test Press Record Store Day E.P competition is (drumroll, please..) Ryan Wainwright who chose Mikal Cronin's self titled debut as his fave piece of Troubled Mindedness.
Thanks to everyone who entered - hope you manage to grab a copy of the E.P at your local indie record store today!
If you haven't already downloaded it and need some new music to get you in the mood for the big day's cratedigging here's a special mix of sixties covers from artists like Sky Picnic, Beaulieu Porch and other great psychedelicists put together especially for today - get it here : http://theactivelistener.bandcamp.com/album/happy-record-store-day
Good luck with your crate digging today folks, and even if you're not a vinyl buyer I'd urge you to visit your local independent record store (if you're lucky enough to still have one!) and pick up some CDs and soak up the atmosphere.
I'm off to my dayjob at our local independent, to spin a bunch of my favorite records and hopefully convert a few folks back to the ways of vinyl.
Long live the independent record store!
