Records...inspired by...Records!

Favorite Record Store Day snags:

El Perro Del Mar (At Your Best) You Are Love mp3
(a cover of Aaliyah's version of the Isley Brothers tune)
Lykke Li After Laughter (Comes Tears) mp3 (Wendy Rene Cover)

Jay Reatard "Hang Them All" b/w Sonic Youth No Garage mp3

There were also great, exclusive 7"s from the Flaming Lips, the Decemberists, a whole slew of Sub Pop bands, Wavves, Beck (also with The Sonik Youth on the flip), and many more. I realize that posting songs online somewhat defeats the purpose of Record Store Day, but my hope is that dear Pacific Standard readers will feel so sad at not owning these precious slabs themselves that they'll feel compelled to go to the record store and search out some other such treasures, as well as picking up these artists' other releases. Won't you please pay a visit to your local record store today?
