mp3s :: Record Store Day > April 16, 2011
So, another Record Store Day come and gone. I made a few of purchases at Sound Fix and Permanent Records (and saw EULA play). I have to admit I was really not that motivated to gobble up RSD exclusives. I just bought a few albums that I knew I would want to listen to on vinyl (including one classic double LP). My purchases follow…
- Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will by Mogwai
Listen: Rano Pano (mp3)
Listen: San Pedro (mp3)

- Constant Future by Parts & Labor

- Double Nickels on the Dime by Minutemen

I also went and preordered a few albums via the interweb.

Truthfully though, when you love music, any day can turn into a â€œrecord store day.â€ So, go to your local independent record store. Clicking through mp3 aggregators and/or blogs is just not the same a flipping through stacks of LPs. Music can be more than zeros and ones, listening to a little vinyl will remind you of that fact.
However, if you really really do not feel like going to a record store you can of course order the above records by following the purchase links provided.
