Most Wanted Record Store Day 2014 Releases
by Rachel Fox (@NoisyHeart88)
1. Dawes/Conor Oberst Split 7″
I like to own anything by my favorite band Dawes and this should be a very cool release with each act covering the other. I’m not actually familiar with the Conor song Dawes is doing, but Conor covering “Million Dollar Bill” should be very interesting. Plus it’s a fun precursor to the upcoming collaborative tour.
2. Deer Tick- Eel Bowel 7″
I loved the first b-side released from the Negativity recording sessions as much as anything on the album, so I’m psyched to hear some more songs from that time.
3. The Civil Wars- Live at Eddie’s Attic 12″
Sadly this may be the last release from the now disbanded duo. It’s not new music (the album has been available as a free download in the past), but live shows are where this group shined and this will be a nice piece to own.
4. Conor Oberst- Hundreds of Ways/Fast Friends 7″
The second appearance from Conor on my list is a 7″ with two new songs in advance of his upcoming solo effort. Hundreds of Ways was released as the first single of sorts from the album, but Fast Friends appears to be a b-side, so this will be worth owning for fans.
5. The Wild Feathers- Got It Wrong/Marie 7″
This band’s debut album has become a recent favorite and I think Got It Wrong is one of the stand out tracks. Marie is a previously unreleased track.
