Big Star - Nothing Can Hurt Me
The Casket Girls - The Casket Girls EP, on what Graveface Records is calling beer and mustard swirl vinyl. The B Side is etched with an image of an eye in a pyramid with The Casket Girls’ name and logo. This as about to become the first Record Store Day 2013 release to hit my turntable.
Half the fun of Record Store Day is watching records that you got for a fair price selling for crazy prices on eBay. Of course, this isn’t nearly as much fun if that special LP has eluded you.
(Edit: This isn’t my copy. I bought mine from Amoeba Online this morning for the MSRP. I don’t re-sell. Some people are misunderstanding my post. Sorry ‘bout that, Chief.)
Support your local record store! Thank you to Andrew and Jonathan for another great Record Store Day at Good City Records.
Akron/Family - <bmbz> also known as AKAK 2012 Detroit N.O.T.F V2.1. I can’t explain why I like this so much. I just know that I do. It seems to have been kind of a failure because you can now buy it on Discogs for less than half of what I paid for it. But I still really like it. Can anyone suggest something that sounds similar to this?
Black Moth Super Rainbow - Eating Us. Bad picture (foil sleeve!) great record. A Record Store Day 2010 release.
Hüsker Dü 7” reissue. This is the first record to go on my Record Store Day 2013 want list. (picture copied from Pitchfork)
Sara Watkins with Fiona Apple/The Everly Brothers - You’re The One I Love. From the right angle this record looks beautiful. But if you catch the light just right (as in the bottom right photo) you can see that there is some kind of film on the disc as a result of it being stuck inside its plastic sleeve. It is slightly audible when played. Does anyone know a way to clean it off?
- The Black Angels - Watch Out Boy/I’d Rather Be Lonely
- The Flaming Lips/Mastodon - A Spoonful Weighs A Ton
The Last of my Record Store Day vinyl arrived yesterday. There are a few others I’d pick up if I came across them at decent prices (Grateful Dead, Misfits, Smoke Fairies, etc) but I was lucky enough to get the ones I wanted the most. And I didn’t buy any of them from flippers. :)
The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends. Ordered Record Store Day morning from flaminglips.com. Arrived via UPS yesterday. This is the Doctor Who sample version. Looks like I’ll be listening to a ton of great vinyl this weekend!

If you’re looking for The Flaming Lips’ Heady Fwends Record Store Day release take a look at flaminglips.com before you pay a flipper a ton of money on eBay. As of this writing (10:45 AM Eastern April 22), it’s still for sale there for $36.98. People have paid up to $150 for it on eBay already. Crazy!
