Published Feb 24, 2012If you've already started compiling a list of must-buys for this year's instalment of Record Store Day on April 21, then you might want to take note of Smugglers Way, a new zine/flexi-disc package that's coming out via Domino Records and Ribbon Music.
The set includes five flexi-discs, each containing an unreleased song. The artists who have contributed exclusive material to this package are Dirty Projectors, Real Estate, Cass McCombs, John Maus and Villagers.
These will come with a 24-page zine containing art and writing from a variety of artists, including an illustration by the Kills' Alison Mosshart, a short written piece by Real Estate's Alex Bleeker, a long poem by Laura Marling, an illustration by Twin Sister's Andrea Estella, photography by Lower Dens' Jana Hunter, a cover designed by Black Dice's Bjorn Copeland, a short written piece by Wild Beasts' Tom Fleming, and an original score by Owen Pallett. We're not exactly sure what format this score will come in.
