Record Store Day!

Please, please, please go to your local mom&pop record store and buy something. It could be the She & Him record. It could be a used Tom Waits record. It could be the Cave Singers, Elvis Costello, anything!

Without your help these record stores will go out of business. I've seen it happen to two, yes, two of my favorite record stores (Streetside Records in Webster Groves and Co-op Records in Cedar Falls). There is honestly nothing more sad than a once bustling records store going out of business. The haggard owner selling things off for whatever you'll give him, record geeks wandering out on the streets, lost and zombie-like, and absolutely no place to find the first Umbrellas record...yikes!

I'm walking down to Hyde Park Records, what are you going to do?

She & Him. Gotta love M. Ward getting together with Zooey Deschanel. I'm loving it...although it is an acquired taste and not everybody digs the paring.
