Domino Celebrates Record Store Day

In case you have been living under a rock, here’s an important reminder: this Saturday, the 16th of April, is Record Store Day, which means get out there and support your local independent record retailers! It’s now more important more than ever, as high street shops shutter up as more people download music online (legally or illegally)…

One label that is celebrating this event in a big way is Domino Records, whose most famous recent acquisition is probably Ireland’s Villagers (pictured above). The Domino “menu”, if you will, on offer will be as follows:

Rekords Rekords Record picture disc 10″ (featuring Queens of the Stone Age and others)

Arctic Monkeys – ‘Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair’ white label 7”

Clinic – ‘Ladies Night’ 10”

Franz Ferdinand – ‘Covers’ EP coloured vinyl 12″

Villagers – ‘Villagers live at the Workman’s Club – Dublin, 16th September 2010’ LP

James Yorkston – ‘It’s Lovely To Be Heard’ 10”

Wild Beasts – ‘Albatross’ 7″

Lone Pigeon LP – ’28 Secret Tracks’ (limited vinyl pressing)

About Group special LP with limited bonus 7”

The Kills – ‘Satellite’ 10”

Villagers/Charlotte Gainsbourg – split 7” – Because Records/Domino US (limited quantity available in the UK)

Listen to several of the tracks on these special issues below. As usual for Record Store Day, these will only be available as supplies last. For more information on these special releases, go to the Domino Web site.
