Our countdown to Record Store Day continues! This one is a classic horn-heavy dub summit from two legends, King Tubby and Lee Perry, appropriately titled At the Grass Roots of Dub. Considered one of the best dub records of the mid-'70s, it's been out of print for over a decade. Now it's finally been reissued, but only in limited quantities for RSD 2013.

10 Releases to Check Out on Record Store Day

Posted by Billy Gil, March 26, 2013 06:35pm | Post a Comment

Record Store Day 2013 takes place April 20, featuring new releases, reissues of out-of-print albums and other rarities. I’ve pulled out 10 titles or sets of releases that jumped out to me personally. If it’s anything like last year, you’ll have to get here early to get those in-demand releases (check out last year’s coverage here).

You can view a listing all of the releases that will be made available that day here and find more information on Record Store Day's official site. Check out my picks below.

 

The BatsBy Night

The Bats AmoebaThe debut release by The Bats, part of the Flying Nun clan of New Zealand jangle-pop bands. The Bats are fronted by Robert Scott, sometime bassist of The Clean, a band whose cult infamy has helped lead to their brethren being rediscovered by a new generation. I haven’t heard By Night, but having quite enjoyed 1987’s Daddy’s Highway, I’m sure their debut is just as chockfull of jangly delights. Seriously, I want to just jump on an airplane slash time machine and live in New Zealand in the ’80s and listen to awesome bands like The Bats, though they’re still around making fine records today.
