On episode nine of The Light In The Attic Podcast, we talk about one of the most hyped-up days of the year in our industry: Record Store Day! Record Store Day started 10 years ago and has since blossomed into an all-out grab fest. This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day.
These are the stories behind our wild bunch of Record Store Day Releases, including the soundtrack to the 1973 Edie Sedgwick film Ciao! Manhattan, a collection of transcendental, minimalist proto-new age piano music by George Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann, and the soundtrack to the Volcom surf film Psychic Migrations.
