COLUMN

The Raveonettes just released their first track of 2016 “The World Is Empty (Without You)”. The new track is the first in a series of releases from the Danish duo’s RAVE-SOUND-OF-THE-MONTH playlist, a 12 month playlist which will feature a freshly recorded track released every month this year. The Raveonettes have always strived to do things their own way both creatively and stylistically. 2016 is no different, and Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo have released a brand new track...

A deeper look at the grooves pressed into the Citizen Dick RSD-issued Touch Me I’m Dick 7” Freelance journalist and novelist Joshua Foer once opined that “Monotony collapses time; novelty unfolds it. … If you spend your life sitting in a cubicle and passing papers, one day is bound ro blend unmemorably into the next – and disappear.” It might seem unlikely, but Foer’s logic is also applicable to the music industry; to wit, I contend that it I spend...

A deeper look at the grooves pressed into Cassandra Wilson/Billy Holiday’s Record Store Day-issued split single “You Go To My Head” b/w “The Mood That I’m In.” I love the concept of “versus” releases.

A deeper look at the grooves pressed into the The Eco-Terrorist In Me 7” released by Rise Against + Will Potter. At first, it might be easy for the format fetishist who is searching for the great “find” or “must-have” on Record Store Day to overlook Rise Against’s contribution to the festivities.

A deeper look at the grooves pressed into the Record Store Day-issued “Sue (Or In A Season of Crime) single by David Bowie. The arc that David Bowie‘s career has appeared to take over the last forty-seven years has been a truly unique one, when you think about it. It could be hypothesized that being a Bowie fan is very, very similar in nature to being a heroin addict: the first hit you took was good – so good that...
