Published Mar 08, 2016After an unconfirmed list of releases for Record Store Day 2016 was put together over the past few weeks, organizers behind the annual celebration of all things vinyl have finally released the full details behind what record collectors will find on store shelves this April.
Along with your Disturbed 12-inch Sounds of Silence picture disc and your one-in-2100 seven-inch of Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting," you'll be able to get your hands on exclusives from Outkast, the Flaming Lips, Best Coast, Bob Dylan, Logic, Patti Smith, Fleetwood Mac, the Weeknd, and a wealth of others.
In paying tribute to music legends who have left us, David Bowie's The Man Who Sold the World and Station to Station song "TVC15" will see release on picture discs, while Jay Reatard's debut LP Blood Visions will see a tenth anniversary repress. Additionally, the long-awaited posthumous J Dilla album The Diary will arrive on wax through Nas' Mass Appeal Records in conjunction with Pay Jay Productions, featuring appearances from Snoop Dogg, Bilal, Frank and Dank, Kenny Wray and others.
Further highlights include Mac DeMarco's Another (Demo) One, which compiles sixteen bedroom demos from the artist on one LP. Another Canadian connection sees Toronto noise-rock crew METZ team up with Mission of Burma for a split seven-inch, covering each other with "Good, Not Great" and "Get Off" respectively.
