Release Day: September 25th

Releases / September 24, 2012

Release Day is a feature which runs every week, detailing the albums that are now in stores. Links are provided and be sure to support your local record store when possible. If we missed any important releases, be sure to let us know in the comments. Full disclosure: The links through Amazon give a small percentage of their sales to Modern Vinyl. The money will go toward improving our site.
