Love it or hate it: Record Store Day 2016 is coming

The list of new vinyl releases for this year’s Record Store Day (April 16) was released today. Yaye for Wendy O. Williams’ Fuck ‘N Roll 7″ single, but why the Justin Bieber Purpose picture disc?

A few notes:
There’s only a few David Bowie offerings on the list
News of The Shaggs’ 7″ of “Sweet Maria”/”The Missouri Waltz” (“Missouri State Song”), and other RSD offerings were leaked early
Big Star’s Complete Columbia: Live at Missouri University double LP from April 25, 1993 will be released

By the way, Metallica is the ambassador this year. I don’t get it either, but Metallica will release their 2003 show at Le Bataclan in Paris (site of the 2015 terror attacks there) and donate the proceeds to the Fondation de France’s Give For France charity.

Ty Segall’s “Mr. Face” EP a 3-D eye-opener

Ty Segall’s latest four-song EP, “Mr. Face,” will be released via Famous Class on Jan. 13.

But “Mr. Face” is also packing a secret: Its gatefold double 7-inch is also being billed as “the world’s first playable pair of 3D glasses.”

The records are pressed on translucent red and blue vinyl. All you have to do is look through the records to view the psychedelic “Mr. Face” album art. When you order from Famous Class, it also comes with a free pair of “Mr. Face” 3-D glasses.
