Record Store Day

On Saturday, April 21, 2018, hundreds of independently owned music stores across the world will simultaneously unite with the purpose of celebrating our culture and the unique place that record stores occupy both in their local communities and the world.

We'll have hundreds of limited edition, exclusive releases available that day in-store only. RSD product is limited to stock on hand and available on a first come, first served basis. No holds, no phone orders. Limit one copy per title per customer. We cannot accept any store coupons on RSD releases.

1pm: Twin Shadow (Live Set)
George Lewis Jr., better known as Twin Shadow, is an LA-based singer, songwriter, record producer, writer, and actor. His fourth album, Caer, will be released on April 27, 2018. Falling is a theme that surfaces throughout the album, which is why Lewis called it Caer - the Spanish word for "to fall." The album serves as a powerful lens through which Lewis explores his own personal sense of falling, as well as what he has observed about a world that feels as if it's declining. On a larger scale, Caer feels extraordinarily current, given what's going on culturally and politically right now.

Introduced to the Sub Pop label by Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces and Digable Planets fame, 27-year-old Yuno’s pedigree is diverse. His parents are from the UK and of Jamaican descent, and his musical upbringing involved a wide array of discovery, mainly as a result of being part of his local skateboarding subculture. He creates his music in his home studio, self-producing, and engineering, playing all the instruments. Also, he shoots all of his press photos, designs his album art, and directs his music videos.
