The album brings together all the artists who've been released on the label -- Alex Burkat, Anthony Naples, Archie Pelago, Boya, Dark Sky, General Ludd, Gunnar Haslam, Hank Jackson, Keita Sano and Lumigraph -- combining music made specifically for the record and tracks that have until now only been available on vinyl.

While you probably don't need a special holiday to show your support for your local record shop, Record Store Day gives a plethora of extra reasons to dig through the racks, and in our bins you'll be sure to discover an incredible array of exclusive vinyl releases. Quantities are limited and there are no guarantees of what you'll find, but you can check out a rundown of all the RSD '14 titles here. We've invited some of our favorite DJs and artists to spin their favorite records in the shop all day long, along with a special performance from Lonnie Holley at 1 p.m. -- the line-up is listed below the jump. Other Music will be open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. for RSD, and keeping in the spirit of Record Store Day, there are no advance orders, holds or reservations -- just come on down and enjoy the fun!

Obviously we're biased, but Boogarins really blew our minds at SXSW last week, and we were not alone in that feeling -- the kids from Brazil got a lot of love in Austin, including from Jon Pareles of the NY Times, who wrote about them in his ArtsBeat blog and again in the paper, and check out this live feature in the Austin Chronicle. That was the start of a massive world tour that has the band at Burgerama this weekend, Psych Fest in May, Primavera, and a ton of other amazing shows, including a couple next week in New York. Boogarins' NYC debut is this Monday, March 24, at 8 p.m. in an in-store performance right here at Other Music!

Come join us as we celebrate the release of Mac DeMarco's Salad Days a little early. Mac will be playing a solo, acoustic in-store at Other Music on Thursday, March 27th at 8 PM. Due to overwhelming demand from his sold out show at Webster Hall, we'll only be able to guarantee entry to the first 80 people who pre-order the album with us at the shop or online here -- one admission per purchase. (You'll be able to pick up your pre-order on the evening of the performance.)
