Here are some of my recent vinyl acquisitions. I bought four of these (the two Bright Eyes records, the Shins’ 7” and the Smiths s/t) over the span of the past two days at Cutler’s Records, which is closing down after 64 years in business. It was bittersweet buying them; on one hand, everything was marked down 25%, but on the other hand, I knew I wouldn’t be able to get anything else from the store after the end of June. The employees seemed to be in fairly high spirits nevertheless.
The other record I bought is the new Self Defense Family 7”, which came in the mail earlier today. The a-side is one of my favorite tracks of the year so far, so I’m very excited to own it. Hopefully my pre-ordered copy of Japandroids‘ Celebration Rock will arrive soon.
Clockwise from top left:
- Bright Eyes - Fevers And Mirrors
- Bright Eyes - There Is No Beginning To The Story
- Self Defense Family - Iceland 7” (“Self Immolation Family” b/w “World Virgins”
- The Shins - “Simple Song” b/w “September”
- The Smiths - The Smiths
