Record Store Day News

This latest news from pitchfork.com about the upcoming celebration of Record Store Day:

Death Cab, R.E.M., Built to Spill, Black Keys Celebrate Record Store Day With Exclusive Singles

The sheer number of artists participating in Record Store Day-- including Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, and Vampire Weekend, to name just a few-- almost makes all these special events and exclusive releases seem a little less than extraordinary, like we should expect such goodies to come our way every day. That's not true, of course (record stores are an endangered species!), which means the announcement of four more participating bands still has us giddy.

The April 19 celebration of independent music retail now includes the release of exclusive limited edition 7"s by Built to Spill, R.E.M., Death Cab for Cutie, and the Black Keys. The tracklist for each one is after the jump.

The Black Keys:

01 Strange Times
02 Something on Your Mind [previously unreleased]

Built to Spill:

01 Don't Try [live, previously unreleased]
02 The Source [live, previously unreleased]

Death Cab for Cutie:

01 I Will Possess Your Heart (10" Mix)
02 I Will Possess Your Heart (7" Mix)


01 Supernatural Superserious
02 Airliner [non-LP B-side]
