Record Store Day – Tomorrow, 4/16

This is your final reminder: tomorrow is International Record Store Day. Fabricated to boost sales of independent record shops four years ago, this crate-digger’s holiday is becoming larger than life. There are so many exclusive Record Store Day releases that it’s hard to keep track – especially on vinyl, which is particularly sacred on Record Store Day. All that matters is that tomorrow, April 16th, you show your support at your local record store (Bring Money!) And gather ’round turntables and share stories, the way old people used to do.

Jill Scott ft. Anthony Hamilton – “So In Love” & “Shame”

The second single from Jill Scott, “So In Love” featuring Anthony Hamilton, will be released on Jill’s upcoming album, The Light of the Sun. Jill Scott and Anthony Hamilton croon in their best style here: the new single is a soulful, bluesy love song, and yes, there is a spoken word break, which may inspire you. After hearing this sweet new duet, and the fiesty first single, “Shame (ft. Eve),” we cannot wait for the new Jill Scott album this year!
