Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop came by and did a quick walk through the store with me (Rick) and here it is. Record Store Day is coming up quick (2 Saturdays! April 19). Get stoked!
So, April is right around the bend and we’re just cresting that hill where all we can see and think about is our 7th Anniversary & Record Store Day Sale! We opened shop on April 12th, 2007 and it’s all been upward mobility since thanks to all of you who have come through our doors (and/or ordered online). We thank all of you for that and we’re not going to stop working hard at giving you all reasons for coming back!
We’ve also decided to do a special promotion this year for those who do order online – keep an eye on our social medias for that special closer to our official anniversary (April 12).
Our in-store sale will run from Sunday April 13th, 2014 through Record Store Day April 19th, 2014.
We have added one particular big promotion to this year’s sale: 50% Off Clearance LPs! Woah, that’s half! We are again running with the $1 CD and used LPs (all LPs marked $3 or under will be just $1 for that week). 15% off everything else.
For Record Store Day (Saturday, April 19th) we’ll have the added incentives of the RSD exclusive titles (more information on those will follow in coming weeks of course). We open at 9AM that day and close at 10PM. The tent will be set up out back full of 7″s and will serve as the entrance for that day. We will have goodie bags for the first liner-uppers (how many is dependent on how much swag we acquire / are sent). We expect a lot of people once again so if you are determined to get something in particular from the exclusives please plan on being here super early. Those of us who work here get here at the crack of daylight and there has generally been a full line by the time we get here which only grows until we open the doors and can last for much of the day. We expect a nice friendly group again and to show our appreciation for that we’ve once again invited the Hardcore Sweets Cupcake Truck & G-Monkey Mobile out to keep y’all fed.
We’ll do our best to keep you up to date with any details that may arise leading up to the events. For now, you should probably just get excited and continuously refresh this page and all our social network sites in anticipation.
We’ll have the full list of what exclusive titles in stock for Record Store Day posted when we have them here. If you’re looking for anything in particular please look forward to reading that on April 18th (day before RSD).

We now have RSR014: Phemale “City Silk” LP available for sale!
We (all of us at Redscroll) were stoked when Phemale (Michael Donahue) said he’d release a record with us and we were doubly psyched when he gave us “City Silk.” It is honestly (and honestly prejudicially) my (Rick) most played record of the year. It rules. If you haven’t yet read the Impose article in which Mike describes the narrative behind his music I suggest you do that now (http://www.imposemagazine.com/features/phemale-michael-donahue).
“I was immediately transfixed by Phemale’s peculiar pop music, unbound by genre or pretension… I was obsessed.” – Jane Chardiet (Impose Magazine
In short: Mixed media artist Michael Donahue has been creating music as Phemale (previously Female until changed to avoid confusion with a long time electronic music producer from across the Atlantic Ocean) prolifically and under the radar since 2008. Pop music with a weird slant and mostly minimal approach.
This track, “Plastination,” appears on “City Silk” as track #5:
Elm Recordings also has a tape out now called “Everything’s Haunted” which Kryssi (of Elm Recordings) describes as the twisted cousin of “City Silk.” It has a similar outer ascetic and inside is “an unsettling soundtrack of intricately arranged sound collage loosely based on the life and times of supermodel Gia Carrangi.” We have some of these for sale as well.
The LP is out of 150 and the tape is hand numbered out of 75.
So, now that you’re totally into Phemale you can own these things and listen on repeat by clicking below:
