Record Store Day is great but once a year? Well we thought that too so that is why we are glad to bring Vinyl Saturdays to you! Vinyl Saturday will be the third Saturday of every month and we’ll be getting a small handful of some very, very limited records from some of your favorite bands. To kick off the inaugural event we have four 7″s you’ll sure want to get here early Saturday for!
Modest Mouse – Autumn Beds b/w Whale Song
First up is the exclusive new single from Modest Mouse! We got the first in the series and they were gone instantly. On this, the second in the series, Modest Mouse present two new songs in “Autumn Beds” and “Whale Song.” They plan on releasing four 7″s before they release their next EP in August so you might expect the next ones to come out on future Vinyl Saturdays but that remains to be seen.
Wilco – You Never Know b/w Unlikely Japan
Second is an exclusive 7″ from everyone’s favorite alt-country rockers Wilco. This 7″s features the single from the new album, Wilco the Album, titled “You Never Know.” On the b-side of the 7″ is a track titled “Unlikely Japan” which is a very early version of the track that became “Impossible Germany” off of their album Sky Blue Sky. So you are getting one track 10 days early and another track that you’ll never find anywhere else!
Green Day – Know Your Enemy b/w Hearts Collide
Third is a new 7″ from Green Day. The a-side is the song that you have to have heard by now, “Know Your Enemy,” while the b-side is a song that no one has heard up until now “Hearts Collide.” This is the only record that “Hearts Collide” will show up on so if you want this song, you want this 7″!
Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson – Relator b/w I Don’t Know What To Do (Pete Yorn Demo)
In the Fall Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson have an album coming out called Break Up that is supposedly going to be in the vein of Serge Gainsbourg’s(second mention on the site in a week!) work with Brigitte Bardot. Well the fourth release for Vinyl Saturday is the single from this album entitled “Relator,” months before the album is due. The b-side to this 7″ is a demo of Pete Yorn performing “I Don’t Know What to Do” which is also scheduled to appear on the album.
As I said earlier, all of this stuff is incredibly limited. That being said, I wouldn’t expect you to be able to come in past this Saturday and get any of these as we anticipate they’ll all be sold this Saturday. So do not hesitate to make it in and spread the word around. Odds are, we’ll be the only game in town when it comes to these titles! Oh did I mention we open at 10AM on Saturdays? :)
