Has Record Store Day Been Corrupted? »


The Quietus has a great piece up about the negative effects that the 2014 Record Store Day has been having on the industry it’s designed to help. The essay is filled with comments and quotes from small labels about the effects RSD has had on their schedules, releases, and a number of other problems. Who’s to blame? In the minds of some, it’s the major labels elbowing their way onto the scene and saying “What can we shit into the form of a record and shove into the hands of the wanton masses?” If you’re planning on hitting the shops this year, does this change any of your purchasing plans?

Where do you weigh-in on this situation?

Let me know your thoughts.

Bane/ Boston 6:58 pm/ Triple-B Records/ 2009 (RP)/ Orange/White Marble Swirl

"We were not awarded bones simply to weigh down our graves." - The Bold and The Beautiful.

Bane. I feel as though my words will fall short in regards to their commitment to the scene. Loyalty, truth, perseverance, and freedom, with that, it seems that I have inadequately described this band.

Bane brings depth, simplicity, sincerity. and depth that in most cases is unmatched. I am just happy to own a piece of their legacy. 

*also, cannot wait for ‘Don’t Wait Up’!!!*
