Great day out shuttling between Glasgow’s two great little record shops. It was the now established Record Store Day and people were out in their droves, queuing to get their hands on the exclusive releases, listen to the live acts (Admiral Fallow – just superb!) and snaffle some of the free tea and cakes. Outside the shops there was chatter and buzz. The sun even came out for a bit. Record Store Day is beginning to feel like an event.
The purpose of the whole day of course is to buy music. Here’s what I came home with:
In Love With Oblivion by Crystal Stilts
Moment Bends by Architecture In Helsinki
A Spare Tabby At The Cat’s Wedding by Moon Wiring Club
From Love Music:
Boots Met My Face by Admiral Fallow
Home And The Wild Hunt by Woodenbox With A Fistful Of Fivers
Appetite by Le Reno Amps
Greater Inventions by For Abel
Stockholm Belongs To Us – A Labrador Records Compilation (Record Store Day 2011 sampler)
Now I just need to find the time to listen to them.
