#VINYLGRATIFICATION FROM LOCAL NATIVES
The new album from Local Natives is coming in September, but they know you want new music NOW. So they've teamed up with record stores across the US for a little Vinyl Gratification. Step in and pre-order SUNLIT YOUTH and walk out with a limited edition 10" containing four new tracks, including "Lydon" which you can ONLY get on the 10". But they're gonna go fast, so scoot!

Exclusive music at record stores from JOHN PAUL WHITE
His new album, BEULAH, comes out on 8/19, but participating record stores have a lovely 7" with brand new tracks on it, including "Maple Hill" a b-side not on the album. Get it at a record store and then visit again to use the $2 coupon you'll find inside! DISCLAIMER
GLASS ANIMALS' HOW TO BE A HUMAN BEING PRE-ORDER
Look for this flyer at a store (or let's be honest, on a store's social media) to find out if they've got a special 7" single from Glass Animals that they'll hand over IMMEDIATELY when you pre-order the new album HOW TO BE A HUMAN BEING. It's coming out 8/26, but stores have those 7" in hand now, though they are going FAST. DISCLAIMER
THE AVALANCHES WILDFLOWER
case/lang/veirs, a true collaboration between three phenomenal, self-driven artists: avant-rock icon Neko Case, legendary musical nomad k.d. lang, and indie folk star Laura Veirs. The women wrote all 14 songs and shared lead vocals equally, sometimes even within the same track. Full of stunning harmonies and spellbinding rhythms, case/lang/veirs travels through aches and eras, torch songs and tributes to the undersung. COMING TO RECORD STORES ON TUESDAY JUNE 14
OSCAR HITS THE RECORD STORE
Indie's new "boy next door" Oscar came over to the US recently from the UK and he stopped by All Day Records to have a little chat. His debut record, CUT AND PASTE, is out on May 13 in record stores around the world, and in advance, Oscar weighs in with his RECORD STORIES
RECORD STORE DAY 2016 AMBASSADOR METALLICA
For Record Store Day 2016, the band's official release is a special live CD, Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! - Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France - June 11th, 2003, a live concert recording from the Paris theatre that became the focus of the world in November 2015. This release, and the charitable donation of its proceeds to Fondation de France’s Give For France charity, fits into a larger theme for Record Store Day 2016 that highlights the relationship between US record stores and their French counterparts, between Record Store Day and Disquaire Day, between music-and-arts-loving humans in the United States, France and the world. More details to come.
* Vinyl Tuesday is a way for us to encourage artists, labels, distributors and managers to continue to release physical music on Tuesdays when they can. This allows physical retailers to have something fresh to sell and to talk about during the week, and lets those releases not just get lost on the increasingly crowded Friday/weekend.
COMING TO RECORD STORES ON TUESDAY AUGUST 23!

Sometimes there are even better reasons to get your music at an indie record store, and those times are when you get a little something extra along with your new record. The goodies below are available starting on street date with the purchase of the new release they are listed with, but they’re ALL LIMITED QUANTITY, so first come first serve applies. Also, indie stores are just that: independently minded, and not all will choose to participate in all these gift-giving promotions, so check with your local store!
STREET DATE 6/10 BAND OF HORSES Get a regionally-specific litho with the purchase of WHY ARE YOU OK at participating stores, while they last. On CD and Vinyl.
