RECORD STORE DAY 2017 RECAP | FEAT. HOARDES OF VINYL LOVERS

Posted by Catie Payne on

Were you one of the brave folk lining up before 9am on Record Store Day 2017, coffee in hand and pepper spray wedged under one armpit?

Nah, it wasn’t like that at all.

While there were droves of serious collectors looking to bag a Bowie or T.Rex rarity, the vibe was all wax, love and harmony.

Whether you turned out to support independent record stores (thanks!) or were one of the miserable set who had to work (sorry!), here’s a visual wander through The Muses festivities.

[Oh, and we couldn’t have pulled it off without the brilliant venue + staff of Espresso Royale - our current (and ferociously adored) home on Magill Road, St Morris. The lush back yard, homey hospitality and general enthusiasm you supplied was magical. Thank you from the hems of our denim.]

And you better believe that we’ll be fighting for more titles and RSD releases next year, so you can go home as happy as - or even happier - than Larry.

Thanks for loving vinyl.

Spot yourself in any snaps?

<3 The Muses

9 Ben Folds songs for 9 awkward occasions

Even brushing past Ben Folds on a suburban street in Adelaide came with a soundtrack. The clop of my shoes gaining speed as I minced along with little happy steps, sharing the footpath with a childhood musical hero. He was wearing a terry toweling bucket hat and licorice-strap specs. But you already knew that. I didn’t grab [...]
