We love technological innovation. It’s the cornerstone for everything we do here at Refinery29, but we’re down with innovations that feel a bit more retro, too. That’s why we’re throwing our hands in the air for Record Store Day. Yes, the humble vinyl is having its moment of glory, yet again. Around the world, thousands of independent record stores are coming together to celebrate the much-loved medium of vinyl.
How will people be celebrating, you ask? With in-store appearances, exclusive live events, and limited edition re-releases of much loved classic albums, for starters. Seriously, there is no excuse not to head down to a record store near you and discover an artist or track you’ve never heard of. We’ll be browsing the Prince limited-edition, Japanese-release B-sides. (Record Store Day)
