    RSD Drops to Feature Conor Oberst, Randy Newman Vinyl

    Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores, takes place over two RSD Drops on two Saturdays this year, June 12 and July 17, 2021, and included among the special releases on those days are new vinyl releases featuring titles from two artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Conor Oberst and Randy Newman.

    For the first RSD Drop, on June 12, comes Conor Oberst's Ruminations (Expanded Edition), a double-LP expanded remastered edition of his critically acclaimed 2016 solo album. Featuring five bonus tracks, four of which are previously unreleased, and an exclusive etching on side D, this release will be first available on black 140-gram vinyl, limited to 9,500 copies worldwide.

    For the second RSD Drop, on July 17, and exclusive to Record Store Day, there's Randy Newman’s Roll with the Punches: The Studio Albums (1979–2017), an eight-LP set of Newman’s latest seven studio albums—Born Again, Trouble in Paradise, Land of Dreams, Faust, Bad Love (on vinyl for the first time), Harps and Angels, and Dark Matter—on 140-gram vinyl, featuring original album jackets, lyric/credit sheets, and Faust demos. This collection will be limited to 3,000 copies worldwide.

    Sam Gendel’s album DRM, released by Nonesuch digitally last October, is now available on vinyl. The follow-up to his March 2020 Nonesuch debut, Satin Doll, DRM features Gendel’s solo musical experiments with vintage instruments such as a forty-year-old Electro Harmonix DRM32 drum machine, antique synthesizers, and a sixty-year-old nylon-string guitar—accompanied by his voice. Gendel says: “I’m imagining people listening to [it] and thinking, ‘What the hell is this?’, like they’d just encountered some sailing ship in the sky.”

    The Black Keys' tenth studio album, Delta Kream, is due May 14 via Nonesuch Records. The record celebrates the band’s roots, featuring eleven Mississippi hill country blues standards that they have loved since they were teenagers, before they were a band, including songs by R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, among others. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney recorded Delta Kream at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville; they were joined by musicians Kenny Brown and Eric Deaton, long-time members of the bands of blues legends including R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. The album takes its name from William Eggleston’s iconic Mississippi photograph that is on its cover.
