FOR THE RECORDS: RSD 2014—Atmosphere Battles Vinyl Addiction | Myspace

Record Store Day is tomorrow, April 19th!

While you are out shopping for sweet, sweet vinyl, be sure to keep an eye out for two Rhymesayers exclusives that we released this year— both very limited edition:

  • Atmosphere // Lake Nokomis Maxi-Single // This six-song vinyl EP is a double-sided picture disc featuring six new Atmosphere songs. These are hand-numbered and only 5,000 in existence. Photography by the great Dan Monick! [Get a closer look.]
  • The Many Faces of Oliver Hart // On vinyl for the first time EVER, this triple disc has five sides of music with custom art etching on the sixth side. [Get a closer look.]

These two pieces are available in-store only. They will ONLY be available online the next day (April 20) IF there is any remaining stock. If there is, these will be placed online at our official Rhymesayers store, Fifth Element: http://fifthelementonline.com
