Record Store Day, Black Friday 2014: What I’m Looking At

Viva la Vinyl.

Back in Black Friday.

Just when you thought it was safe to put away your wallet — no, it’s back. I’m talking about the 2014 edition of Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. You’ll remember the regular Record Store Day that happened back in April; I managed to find the majority of items on my list and got to see a lot of people helping the cause. Once again, RSD is getting in on the holiday rush with another set of exclusive cassette, CD, vinyl and other pieces ready to crawl out of the chimney and onto your player of choice. Just remember to get in line early, or you could miss out on some things you are searching for! Here are ten acts and their releases that you may be hunting for on Friday, November 28:

AFRIKA BAMBAATAA & THE SOUL SONIC FORCE – “Planet Rock”
Format: 12″ vinyl single
View artwork

Though this 1982 song just squeaked into the top 50 on the Hot 100 in its original run, its impact has been felt in the hip-hop community for decades. It would be cool to have a copy of such a classic record. Oh, by the way, it’s glow in the dark. Sweet.

BLEACHERS – Strange Desire (The Demos)
Format: 12″ vinyl EP
View artwork

Strange Desire remains one of my favorite albums of the year thus far, and its two singles have both done well on my top 40 chart. I found a copy of the limited release of “I Wanna Get Better” earlier this year, so I’d love to find this six song EP next.

BON JOVI – Live 2
Format: 12″ vinyl EP
View artwork

The first Live EP, another Record Store Day release, featured four live versions of classics like “Keep The Faith” and “Livin’ On A Prayer”. This four song set features another bunch of big songs, including “Bad Medicine” and “I’ll Be There For You”.

ECHOSMITH – “Cool Kids”
Format: 12″ vinyl single
View artwork

This former On The Verge sponsored quartet has a top ten smash on both the CHR and Hot AC surveys, and their first single to be issued on vinyl could be yours on the 28th. The 12″ piece includes the radio mix of “Kids” and a new mix done by RAC.

ED SHEERAN – “Thinking Out Loud” / “I’m A Mess”
Format: 7″ single
View artwork

“Thinking” is already a hit overseas and it’s likely to achieve the same status over here next year. Much like the previous art during this era, the sleeve is green (though the record itself likely isn’t) and its b-side, found on his album X, is in a live form.

5 SECONDS OF SUMMER – 5 Seconds Of Summer
Format: 12″ vinyl LP
View artwork

I don’t have any physical product from them… yet. However, that could change on Black Friday. Of course, the tweens can’t get enough of them, especially with a #1 album and two top ten EPs (a third is on the way.) This picture disc could be a start.

RUN DMC – “Christmas In Hollis”
Format: 7″ vinyl single
View artwork

Back in 1987, you could find this festive rap on the first A Very Special Christmas compilation, which benefitted the Special Olympics. This re-release features the added b-side “Peter Piper” from 1986’s Raising Hell, as well as an “audible postcard”.

VARIOUS ARTISTS – American Hustle (Soundtrack)
Format: 2 x 12″ vinyl LP
View artwork

It was partially filmed in my hometown of Worcester, MA in the spring of 2013 and the extended version of this soundtrack is definitely near the top of my list this time around. Bringing back the sounds of decades past, it is worth the hustle to get it.

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1
Format: Cassette
View artwork

The film did big numbers at the box office during the summer and the soundtrack from it topped the Billboard 200 chart for two weeks in August. Featuring jams from the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, Peter Quill’s musical memories tape is a fun find.

WHAM! – “Last Christmas”
Format: 12″ vinyl single
View artwork

I’ve enjoyed a handful of versions of this annual treat, but nothing beats the original, which climbed as high as #2 in the U.K. in 1984. Needless to say, you’ll be hearing it on many stations soon enough. This is specially printed on green and red vinyl.

What else is looking good?
DAVE MATTHEWS BAND – Recently (EP) (10″ vinyl EP)
DAVID BOWIE – “Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)” (10″ vinyl single)
HOZIER – In The Woods Somewhere (EP) (10″ vinyl EP)
IMAGINE DRAGONS – Night Visions (12″ vinyl LP – picture disc)
PHIL SPECTOR/VARIOUS ARTISTS – A Christmas Gift For You (12″ vinyl LP)
THE BEATLES – Long Tall Sally (EP) (7″ vinyl EP)
VARIOUS ARTISTS (FROZEN) – “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” / “In Summer” (7″ vinyl single – picture disc)

For a full list of all the special stuff, it’s all up on Record Store Day’s website. Are you getting pumped for RSD’s Black Friday festivities and is there another release not listed here that you’ve got to have?

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (October 21)

Looking for some not-so-"Mediocre" numbers.

Looking for some not-so-“Mediocre” numbers.

Rappers, rockers, reindeer lovers: they’re all in the mix this week as Q4 keeps chugging along at a faster pace. Here’s what albums and singles are in stores for the week of October 21:

  • No longer a Trouble Man and putting in his Paperwork is T.I., who has been hot on Rhythmic and Urban radio with hit singles like “About The Money” and “No Mediocre”, the former featuring Young Thug and the latter featuring Iggy Azalea. This is the rapper’s first album in two years and first since making the leap from Atlantic to Columbia Records. Look for it to be a contender for #1 next week. (iTunes)
  • Metal monsters Slipknot haven’t released a new studio album since 2008, but that changes this week when .5: The Gray Chapter debuts in stores. A single from it, “The Devil In I”, is shooting towards the #1 spot on the Active Rock airwaves, currently positioned at #2. Given the extended gap of time and high-ranking pre-release singles, this may also be in reach of the top. (iTunes)
  • After finishing their last era with a minor chart single called “Sober”, country quartet Little Big Town go for some “Day Drinking” on their latest set, Pain Killer. “Day” is currently top ten at Country radio and it appears that they’re due for another successful era. It should make a run at the top five on the Billboard 200, though it’ll fall short of #1. (iTunes)
  • The 24-year-old rapper named Logic has been noted on the underground circuit and blogosphere for several years now with a series of Young Sinatra mixtapes. This week, his first full-length album, Under Pressure, is out. Likely to be the surprise of the week, you may see the set bowing in the top five when all is said and done. (iTunes)
  • Ho, ho, hold on one moment — we have some sensational stocking stuffers sizzling on the scene, including Anthony Hamilton‘s Home For The Holidays (iTunes), Earth, Wind & Fire‘s Holiday (iTunes) and Pentatonix‘s That’s Christmas To Me (iTunes).
  • Other releases out this week include: Andrea Bocelli‘s Opera, The Ultimate Collection (iTunes), Annie Lennox‘s Nostalgia (iTunes), Aretha Franklin‘s Sings The Great Diva Classics (iTunes), Billy Idol‘s Kings & Queens Of The Underground (iTunes), Boyz II Men‘s Collide (iTunes), Bush‘s Man On The Run (iTunes), Gavin DeGraw‘s Finest Hour: The Best Of Gavin DeGraw (iTunes), Jacquie Lee‘s Broken Ones (EP) (iTunes), Jerry Garcia‘s GarciaLive Volume 5: December 31st 1975, Keystone Berkeley (iTunes), Jessie Ware‘s Tough Love (iTunes), Kiesza‘s Sound Of A Woman (iTunes), Neil Diamond‘s Melody Road (iTunes), Primus‘s Primus & The Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble (iTunes), Susan Boyle‘s Hope (iTunes) and Vérité‘s Echo (EP) (iTunes).

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “Baby Don’t Lie”, the new single from singer Gwen Stefani. (iTunes)
  • “Lips Are Movin”, a movin’ musical moment from Meghan Trainor. (iTunes)
  • “Nobody”, a single from YouTube’s Ricky Dillon. (iTunes)
  • “Outside”, a collaboration from Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding. (iTunes)
  • “Welcome To New York”, a digital single from Taylor Swift. (iTunes)

A country chanteuse turned pop princess has a pretty huge album coming out on Monday… gee, I wonder who it could be? That swiftly approaching record, along with the rest of the new releases, are coming up in a full preview on Sunday night.

Chart Notes:

  • It was back in August that Jamie Scott spent his final of four weeks at #1 with “My Hurricane”, the title track from his forthcoming album. Now, he’s back with his second solo chart-topper in “Unbreakable”, which advances 2-1. It’s the fourth total #1 for the 30-year-old British performer, who also scored two in a row with Graffiti6 in 2012. Scott still has three songs on the chart this week, with “Hurricane” at #15 and his duo’s “The Bridge” at #36.
  • If you’re looking for big movers on the countdown, you’re out of luck, at least this week. There are four songs tied at a movement of five spots upward, with an additional three songs up four spots. Maybe there will be some shaking up on the next chart. However, James Blunt, Olly Murs / Travie McCoy and Take That all look top 20 bound in the coming weeks, while One Direction could break the top ten.
  • This week’s Highest Debut saw a video premiere this week: it’s “27” by my top artist of last year, Passenger, bowing in at #38. This marks the third release to chart from his album Whispers, following “Scare Away The Dark” (#1) and “Heart’s On Fire” (#9). The singer and songwriter is currently on tour on Europe and heads to Australia in 2015.
  • Also debuting with a third single is Ed Sheeran, in at #39 with “Thinking Out Loud”, from the album X. Though the song isn’t actively being promoted in the U.S. while “Don’t” continues to build at radio, “Loud” is #1 in Australia and New Zealand and top five in the United Kingdom. I’m sure it will smash here during the spring.
  • Finally, at #40, is the latest from the those Golden Gate guys, the band Train. Their second single from Bulletproof Picasso is “Cadillac, Cadillac”. The luxury car previously rode into the top 40 on the Hot 100 for Michael Martin Murphey and Natalie Cole, and perhaps the band’s new one will drive the same route.

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (October 14)

They've got friends in bro places.

They’ve got friends in bro places.

The autumn leaves are dropping, just like those big releases that Q4 is all about. Get ready, partners, because here’s what albums and singles are in stores for the week of October 14:

  • Their last album was full of hits like “Cruise”, “Stay” and “This Is How We Roll”, to name just a few. Now, the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, better known as Florida Georgia Line, are back on the scene (though I suppose they never left) with Anything Goes, featuring a recent #1 on the Country chart, “Dirt”. Their last album is at about two million copies sold to date, so expect this one to head to the top (and Platinum status) real quickly. (iTunes)
  • Millions of music fans came out to download the new U2 album, Songs Of Innocence, when it was offered for free in an iTunes giveaway, although millions more wanted to get rid of it altogether. Granted, it was not the same as Oprah Winfrey telling you that you got a new car, but not much can match that. Nonetheless, a physical edition is in stores today with some added tunes and art that weren’t previously available. (iTunes)
  • Some would call her a Sweet Talker, but that also happens to be the name of the latest album from Jessie J. It’s her second album to be released here after a U.S. release of Alive (out last year in Europe) was shelved. (The only single to be issued from it was “Wild”, but it was later pulled.) Smashing with “Bang Bang”, featuring Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, this one also looks like a hit. (iTunes)
  • New York rapper Hoodie Allen has been hitting the Billboard 200 for a few years now with a series of EPs despite little recognition on any singles survey. This week, he’s out with his first full-length album, People Keep Talking. It features a collaboration with Ed Sheeran. Will it crash the top ten? It may very well happen. (iTunes)
  • You’ve probably seen their song “Stolen Dance” at #1 on the Alternative chart after some big international success. Now, German duo Milky Chance unleash their album Sadnecessary in the States as “Dance” crosses over. I think they’ll find that their first week sales are gut, as they might say. (iTunes)
  • Singers Pink (Alecia Moore) and City And Colour (Dallas Green) combine to form the duo You+Me and release their first set together, rose ave., featuring the single “You And Me”. Strong pre-orders should land it in the top five digitally and near the top ten on the Billboard 200. (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness‘s Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness (iTunes), Angaleena Presley‘s American Middle Class (iTunes), Bob Seger‘s Ride Out (iTunes), Exodus‘s Blood In Blood Out (iTunes), Fit For A King‘s Slave To Nothing (iTunes), Idina Menzel‘s Holiday Wishes (iTunes), Mary Lambert‘s Heart On My Sleeve (iTunes), Michael Feinstein‘s Christmas (iTunes), Nico & Vinz‘s Black Star Elephant (iTunes), Oh Honey‘s Sincerely Yours (EP) (iTunes), OK Go‘s Hungry Ghosts (iTunes), Ozzy Osbourne‘s Memoirs Of A Madman (iTunes), Renée Fleming‘s Christmas In New York (iTunes), Sammy Hagar‘s Lite Roast (iTunes), Stars‘s No One Is Lost (iTunes), The Dubarrys‘s The Dubarrys (EP) (iTunes), The Game‘s Blood Moon: Year Of The Wolf (iTunes) and The Swon Brothers‘s The Swon Brothers (iTunes).

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week (and there’s a whole lot of them) include:

  • “Drunk Americans”, the new single from Country singer Toby Keith. (iTunes)
  • “Need You Right Now”, from YouTube star Bethany Mota and Mike Tompkins. (iTunes)
  • “Not For Long”, a new single from rapper B.o.B and singer Trey Songz. (iTunes)
  • “Out Of The Woods”, a digital single from Taylor Swift. (iTunes)
  • “XIX”, a digital single from rockers Slipknot. (iTunes)

It’s another mixed bag on the schedule next time, with Aretha Franklin, Little Big Town, Neil Diamond, Slipknot and Susan Boyle among the week’s top contenders. A full preview is coming in seven!

Chart Notes:

  • In just under a month, the latest release from Maroon 5 leaps to #15 as “Animals” claims the week’s Biggest Mover title, up seven spots. It’s the second single to chart from V; it follows “Maps”, and that former #2 is located back-to-back with it at #14. Will the animal kingdom devour its competition and take control of the chart throne? They are certainly hungry for more and could do it.
  • After charging into the chart last week at #30, One Direction climb modestly this week with “Steal My Girl”, up to #25. It just missed debuting in the top ten on the Hot 100, coming in at #13. Should it rise there or make the top ten at CHR radio, it will join only a few titles to “steal” a place that high, like Robbie Dupree‘s “Steal Away” (1980) and Len‘s “Steal My Sunshine” (1999).
  • Olly Murs earns this week’s Highest Debut with a little help from Travie McCoy. In at #38, “Wrapped Up” marks the leadoff single from Murs’s forthcoming album, Never Been Better, due for release in Australia and in the U.K. in late November. Look for it to be another big success for the 30-year-old singer. (No Stateside date has been decided as of yet.)
  • Also dancing onto the countdown is the latest single from former quintet turned quartet turned quintet and now trio Take That. “These Days” jumps aboard at #40, the first release from their appropriately titled forthcoming album III. Last time out in 2011, the group hit #18 with a song called “When We Were Young”.
