::DAVID LYNCH The Air Is On Fire [LP, Sacred Bones]
In early 2007, David Lynch was the subject of a retrospective art exhibition at Paris’ Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Evocatively titled The Air is on Fire, it was notable for being the first major comprehensive exhibition of the avant-garde director’s paintings, photographs and drawings. It wasn’t strictly a visual affair; throughout the entire gallery’s two floors and four rooms, a pervasive, interactive soundscape escorted viewers through the work. That soundscape, which shares the name of the exhibition, was composed by Lynch and his collaborator, Dean Hurley, and it’s being issued for the first time on vinyl by Sacred Bones Records as a special Record Store Day release.
::JOY DIVISION An Ideal For Living [7”, Rhino]
Audio sourced from the Joy Division ”+-” box-set and the lacquer for this release was cut by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road in January 2014.The sleeve is matt, will be warm to the touch and pays homage to the ‘Scaffolding’ release of this classic Joy Division record. All lettering will be shiny/foil blocked.Limited edition but not numbered.Description: The debut release by seminal British band JOY DIVISION re-imagined for 2014 with new beautiful new artwork and a crisp, fresh new master cut at Abbey Road by the bands long-standing engineer and vinyl specialist Frank Arkwright.
::LIARS Mess On A Mission [12”, Mute]
12” clear vinyl with coloured yarn pressed inside the record. Extremely limited edition just for Record Store Day with only 1,000 units being made in the US. The vinyl will contain 4 tracks including ”Mess On A Mission”, and 3 remixes.
::NIRVANA Pennyroyal Tea [7”, Universal]
Original plans for the single in 1994 were cancelled due to Kurt Cobain’s death ”Pennyroyal Tea”/”I Hate Myself and Want To Die”
::SHLOHMO Shlo-Fi [12”EP, Error Broadcast]
Error Broadcast re-issues the mini album Shlo-fi by Bay Area beat conductor Shlohmo. The tape dropped late in 2009, hot on the heels of Shlomoshun which in 2010 became a great success as Shlomoshun Deluxe (Friends of Friends Music). While the later showcases the beat-heavy side of Shlohmo, Shlo-fi can be seen as breeding ground for the more subtle aspects in the work of young Laufer who recently earned massive praise with his left-field masterpiece Bad Vibes.
::TAME IMPALA Live Versions [12”Ep, Interscope]
Eight tracks recorded in Chicago during the band’s 2013 US tour. The live arrangements of these tracks are distinctly different than the recorded arrangements, and chosen for this RSD release for that reason.
::THE NOTWIST Run Run Run [12”, Sub Pop]
This Record Store Day exclusive includes “Run Run Run” from The Notwist’s recent Sub Pop album, Close to the Glass, plus three unreleased tracks – one new song, and two exclusive remixes of tracks from Close to the Glass.
