Tuesday Tunes - Record Store Day Finds

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all all having a solid week so far.  I haven't been on a search for any new music over the last few weeks because Justin Timberlake and Kid Cudi have been all my speakers have played lately.  I did however get some good finds on Record Store Day. Thankfully, Mallory waited out in the cold with me for 2 hours to get some records that I desperately wanted.  Here is a glimpse of what I got.

Manchester Orchestra/Grouplove/Frightened Rabbit split
This is easily my favorite thing I picked up over the weekend.  This was #1 on my pick-up list, and I swear I told Mallory 5 times that I had to get this record to make the trip (and long, cold line) worth it.  Of the two songs, I have to say the Manchester, Grouplove song "Make It To Me" is my favorite. There's a drop in the middle of the song that gets everyones attention and is really awesome.  Plus, Grouplove and Manchester sharing vocals is a hard combination to beat.

Straylight Run - Prepare To Be Wrong
I remember the first time I heard "Big Shot" from this album.  It was a 20 second clip that played as a commercial on Fuse (when they used to be a music channel).  I remember thinking I had to find the complete song because it was unlike anything I had heard before, and definitely a stretch from what Straylight had done previously.  I talked with one of my good friends on Saturday while listening to this record, and he had the same feeling the first time he heard it.

Walk The Moon - Tightrope Ep
This wasn't a record that I necessarily had to have.  Mallory and I were going through all the records and I came across this and decided I should just go ahead and pick it up.  I can't say it's my favorite thing I've bought, but I did find myself listening to it while I cooked dinner on Sunday.  It did make the experience more enjoyable.  Their music just makes you want to dance, and I think most people always enjoy that.
I also picked up two Steve Martin comedy records, and a Chuck Berry album.  We celebrated RSD at Shake It Records in the Northside area of Cincinnat.  Did you go out and find anything you were looking for?  -Brian
