#RSD17 | Record Store Day Playlist

This Saturday April 22nd marks the tenth anniversary of Record Store Day, the organised chaos that sees thousands and thousands of music lovers descend upon in depend record stores across the world to get their hands on special vinyl releases of obscure, beloved, and specially-recorded music by the world’s most interesting and inspiring artists. To join in the fun, the Wales Arts Review writers have looked through this year’s mouth-watering catalogue of special releases and chosen just a handful for a Record Store Day 2017 accompanying playlist, something to have in your ears while you’re queuing for your local record store to open.

From Air to Miley Cyrus, from the Dark Crystal OST to Johnny Cash, this year’s celebrations of music lovers everywhere promises to be one to remember.
