Record Store Day 2015

Here comes Record Store Day 2015, to be held this Saturday April 18! On that day, people go to record shops to buy vinyl records available exclusively in shops on that day. No pre-orders or even online sales, at least not until later. Jet Set will sell online from May 2 only.

So here are a few picks of some great releases coming this weekend. The full list can be seen on the official site, and participating shops are listed here.
