Record Store Day Treasures: Part One ““ Thrill Jockey

Record Toreism

With over 100 limited releases being pressed especially for Record Store Day, it’s hard to select favorites. But throughout the week, File Under ? will be listing select highlights to whet appetites.  

This from Thrill Jockey Records  

Thrill Jockey is proud to present our very own special contribution to Record Store Day (April 18th).   The deluxe “Records Toreism” LP will be limited to 900 copies and will feature on one side a drawing by Post Typography and a photo silk screen by Crosshair on the other.   The images portray record stores of the future, one if you support the community institutions and the other if you don’t.   Yes that is right, the inconvenient truth.   The printing and jacket fabrication will be done by Crosshair.    

Deluxe – all hand made, hand printed loveliness!

The second insert, NAY! I say the first MANIFESTO, was written by an elusive crank known to dine with those that lay claim to Futurism.
