Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores, will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2023, and included among the special releases on that day are new vinyl releases from The Black Keys, The Magnetic Fields, and Wilco.

In celebration of The Black Keys’ twentieth anniversary, the band presents a previously unreleased full-length live recording of their very first show at Beachland Tavern in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2002. Live at Beachland Tavern March 31, 2022 will be available on 140-gram, tangerine-colored vinyl in a limited quantity of 8,000.

Available on vinyl for the first time, The Magnetic Fields’ 2004 Nonesuch debut album, i, was the long-awaited follow-up to the beloved 69 Love Songs. Singer-songwriter Stephin Merritt was in full possession of his acerbic wit on i, and the album features lyrics ripe with melancholy and bittersweet imagery. At the time of release, the Guardian wrote: ”Merritt is an incomparable lyricist capable of balancing arch wit with painfully acute observation. The most exciting dissector of modern love around.” The album will be available on 140-gram, gold-colored vinyl in a limited quantity of 4,000.

Following the Grammy-winning twentieth-anniversary edition of Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot comes an alternate version of the landmark 2002 album featuring unique performances by Jeff Tweedy and the band of all eleven songs. The collection was originally released as a bonus CD with the September 2022 issue of Uncut magazine, which calls Wilco “America's greatest band” and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot “a cast-iron rock classic.” Crosseyed Strangers: An Alternate Yankee Hotel Foxtrot will be available on 140-gram black vinyl in a limited quantity of 8,000.

Record Store Day, first launched in 2007, celebrates the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores in the USA, UK, and more. To find out what special releases will be available at a participating local retailer near you, head to recordstoreday.com.

    Girls of the Golden West, John Adams’ eighth music theater work to be released by Nonesuch, is due April 26. The composer leads the LA Phil in this recording made in Disney Hall, with the Los Angeles Master Chorale led by Grant Gershon. You can hear the aria "Wagon Ride," featuring Davóne Tines and Julia Bullock, now. For the opera, which tells the story of the California Gold Rush, longtime Adams collaborator Peter Sellars drew from original sources from the era—letters, journals, newspaper articles, and familiar song lyrics—to create the libretto. The cast also includes Paul Appleby, Hye Jung Lee, Elliot Madore, Daniela Mack, and Ryan McKinny.

    The second album from Haitian-American singer and composer Nathalie Joachim, Ki moun ou ye, is out now on Nonesuch / New Amsterdam Records. On the album, Joachim takes listeners through an intimate collection of music that ponders its title’s question: “Who are you?” Inspired by the remote Caribbean farmland that her family continues to call home after seven generations and performed in both English and Haitian Creole, the work examines the richness of one’s voice—an instrument that brings with it DNA, ancestry, and identity—in a vibrant tapestry of Joachim’s voice, and intricately sampled vocal textures underscored by an acoustic instrumental ensemble. "On her dazzling new album," says Bandcamp, "she's found an outlet that allows her to express the full diapason of her interests and creativity." The Quietus exclaims: "Joachim’s powerful voice provides the thread that binds together a glorious tapestry."
