One of the two of the writers of this blog doesn’t own a record player, so the significance of the upcoming “Vinyl Saturday” is lost on him. For the one that does, and for all of you out there who do own a record player, then June 20th is your next chance to snap up limited 7″s from Wilco and Modest Mouse.
Put on by the same folks who work on the now annual Record Store Day, Vinyl Saturday will feature fresh wax from not only Wilco and Modest Mouse, but also 7″s from Green Day, Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn, and Al Green, among others.
The Wilco record will feature an A-Side from their upcoming album Wilco (The Album) entitled “You Never Know” and a B-Side entitled “Unlikely Japan” – which is an early version of “Impossible Germany” from Sky Blue Sky.
As for Modest Mouse, their 7″ is the next in their series leading up to their August release of No One’s First & You’re Next, and it will contain the tracks “Autumn Beds” and “Whale Song.” The first in their 7″ series – “Satellite Skin” – is out now. The vinyl is sold out, but you can still get the tracks through iTunes.
Check the Record Store Day website for participating stores in your area.
