This Saturday, April 17, is Record Store Day, which is self-explanatory enough. To lure consumers away from iTunes and into stores to buy CDs and maybe even vinyl, indie retailers—provided you can still find one where you live—are offering loads of interesting one-offs and reissues, along with in-store performances by some heavyweight acts. The list of bands participating is pretty impressive, from Against Me! at Plan 9 Music in Richmond, VA, Drive-By Truckers at Harvest Records in Asheville, NC, and Yo La Tengo at Rhino Records in Claremont, CA. The official Record Store Day website has more information on special offers and live performances. And if it doesn’t seem too counterintuitive to you, you can hear a couple of exclusive Record Store Day tracks from Beach House streaming online, courtesy of Sub Pop.

"'Lazuli' gleefully opens with a Casio-like ping of notes, before the song transforms itself into something from the Cure’s Disintegration in its open and spacious sound that feels epic in rendering." -- Zachary Houle
