  1. Not sure why the 311 release isn’t notable.

  2. How did they manage to get a live version of “My Sharona” onto a 10″ ?

  3. Anyone attending either weekend of Coachella this year and enjoys the RSD event should know that they’ll have some exclusive Coachella-only releases. The only one the website they’ve announced so far is a 7″ reissue of At the Drive-In’s Vaya.

  4. Huh, for a second there I misread that as Feist covers Madonna, and Madonna covers Feist. Then I realized what it *actually* said was just about as crazy.

  5. Want to pick up that Danny Brown release. Also intrigued by the Feist/Mastodon covers. … and of course, I’ll want to get that Beach House 7″.

    … damn you, Record Store Day. Damn you.
