The list of exclusive releases for this year’s Record Store Day was announced yesterday at 6pm.

The event, which celebrates independent records shops up and down the country, is happening on the April 18. We now know what records vinyl fans will be queuing round the corner for in the hopes of getting their hands on. Here’s a rundown of some of the releases we are most excited for this year:

Warmduscher – European Cowboy
Warmduscher offer up a set of “legitimate bangers” for the first time on vinyl. European Cowboy features previously unreleased remixes from the likes of Soulwax and Savage Gary.

Christine and the Queens – La Vita Nuova: Sequences 2 et 3
French singer Chris a.k.a Christine and the Queens is bringing out new music for the event. The record also features cover art of Chris in an almost Stooges-era Iggy Pop pose, arching her back to sing into the mic.

The Murder Capital – Live From London: The Dome, Tufnell Park

Hot on the heels of the release of their debut album last year, The Murder Capital are capitalising on their momentum and getting in on the action this Record Store Day. The band are putting out two lovely live recordings from their live show in London at The Dome.

Beck + St. Vincent – No Distraction / Uneventful Days
This is one of those collaborations that we didn’t know we needed until we had it. The two titans of alternative have come together for a St. Vincent remix of Beck’s Uneventful Days.

Comet Is Coming – Imminent
London doom jazz outfit Comet Is Coming are following up their majorly successful record Trust In The Lifeforce Of Deep Mystery with a new 12″ single, a “pulsating, frenetic number”.

We were at Assai Records to speak to manager Mark Thorne about recycled vinyl, the musical community and what Record Store Day will look like at Assai. Have a listen below:
