The Rural Alberta Advantage, the Russian Futurists Announce Record Store Day Reissues
'Departing' and 'The Method of Modern Love' are getting anniversary reissues on vinyl
Published Jun 30, 2021Record Store Day is split across two separate days in 2021, and with the second event coming up on July 17, Paper Bag Records has announced anniversary vinyl reissues of the Rural Alberta Advantage's Departing and the Russian Futurists' The Method of Modern Love.
The RAA's Departing was their sophomore album. It came out in 2011, meaning that it's celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The reissue will be pressed in a run of 400 records on "whiteout" vinyl, which imitates the colour palette of the album cover. A press release notes that the band will release new music in 2022.
As for the Russian Futurists' The Method of Modern Love, it came out in 2000 and was never pressed on vinyl until now. This one-year-late 20th anniversary edition will come on gold-coloured wax in a limited run of 200.
Some other RSD releases arriving on July 17 will come from artists like Born Ruffians, Foo Fighters (with a Bee Gees covers album under the name Dee Gees), St. Vincent and Dominique Fils-Aimé. Check out Exclaim!'s list of the best releases of Record Store Day 2021.
