While the full Record Store Day list hasn’t been released yet, news on RSD releases continue to trickle out.
Waxploitation Records founder Jeff Antebi asked artists from music & art to collaborate on original children’s stories for a benefit project. The book includes stories from Nick Cave, Frank Black, Justin Vernon, Laura Marling, Devendra Banhart, Alison Mosshart as well as paintings/illustrations from Anthony Lister, Dan Baldwin, Swoon, Will Barras, James Jean, Ronzo, Kai & Sunny, and others.
Not to be content with just creating the book – On April 22nd, it will be available on 12” colored vinyl. There will only be 2,000 made available. (so, arrive early to your favorite record store)
