The shop will take part in Record Store Day in a stripped back way this year as we won’t be stocking the RSD releases.
Normally, as well as stocking the exclusive releases, we like to use Record Store Day as a platform for local bands and labels that have been supportive of the shop. That hasn’t changed and this year we’ve cut out the official releases but are instead working to promote brand new vinyl and cassette releases by bands that are often based just down the road. A showcase of local talent as a treat for the ears. In terms of limited edition records, we will have a special focus on the many and varied local bands and Scottish labels that we stock and work with. Labels that release limited runs of top quality music all year round and which improve every record shop that stocks them.
To celebrate RSD this year we have a showcase of Edinburgh bands playing short intimate sets from noon until 6pm.
Delta Mainline -(New single ‘Vultures’ coming out on vinyl on the shop’s FoxBox label on June 29th)
The Holy Ghosts -Edinburgh’s finest good time rock and roll band. (Vinyl EP was the shop label’s 3rd release and came out in March)
Retro electro-poppers Miracle Strip (Simply Thrilled Records) release their debut album on cassette.
Supermoon (Neil Pennicook of previously of Meursault) -New album on cassette out early April on Edinburgh’s Song, by Toad label.
Garden of Elks -New album on vinyl about to be released on Song, by Toad.
Coming through from Glasgow and playing later in the day are:

Do pop down on the day, it should be a whole lot of fun.
