Record Store Day Drops 2021

Celebrate your RSD Drop Days here, at Pure Pop on June 12 & July 17!

What goes on RSD Drop Days at Pure Pop?

First, there are hundreds of exclusive/limited releases, for more info you can check out recordstoreday.com

Items for drop #  are starting to be checked in, page 1, page 2.

Please note that RSD titles will be available at 1pm by phone or online
Note, everyone in the country can buy things on our website, so high demand titles will go fast once the online sales start at 1pm.

So how do I get my hands on my favorite RSD Drop Day release?

Well, there will be a line.  Below is a general explanation of how the day will work.

If you have done Record Store Days at Pure Pop in the past, please note the time differences from previous years.  This is also different the RSD drops last year in the middle of the pandemic.

Pure Pop opens at 9am on RSD Drop Day(Saturday June 12 or July 17). We will be collecting wish lists at 8am sharp – make sure to get yours in by then! If there are only a couple of releases you really want, we DO NOT recommend trying to be the first in line – it won’t make a difference if you fill out a wish list. As long as you’re here no later than 7:55am with your wishlist, you have just as much a chance as anyone else to get the one or two releases that you want. If you want 20 things really, really badly, then we suggest getting to Pure Pop early so you can be the first in line to get in. There is usually already a small line around 6am or so. Besides the two items on your wishlist, everything else is first come, first serve. WE DO NOT DO PRE-ORDERS OR HOLDS PRIOR TO RSD. This is just general nationwide RSD policy.

So, what’s a wish list? In order for us to try to get you the release you want, we have a “wish list” – you fill out up to 10 releases that you want in order of how much you want them (1 being: you’d kill to get it, 10 being: you wouldn’t be torn up if you missed it). We collect the wish lists at 8am sharp and shuffle them. Starting from the random wish list on the top of the pile, we pick out the top 2 items you wrote down that are available and hold it for you, so you’re guaranteed to get at least something on your list. BUT we cannot guarantee everyone will get their #1 and #2 choices. We have a very limited supply of RSD releases! As we go through the lists and things sell out, we move on to the #3, #4, #5 choices and so on.

Here’s an example of how the wish list works: Say we get 20 copies of the Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia vinyl. Johnny’s wish list is 25th in the pile of randomly shuffled lists and the Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia vinyl is at the top of his list. Before we get to Johnny’s list however, twenty other people had the Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia on their top 2 and we put them aside for those lucky people, so we are now sold out of the Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia. Sorry Johnny, but we’ll have to move on to your number 2 and 3 on the list instead. Even though Johnny didn’t get his number 1 pick, at least he got his 2nd and 3rd! and since it was really up to pure chance, he’s not too bummed and didn’t waste time by lining up outside the store at 5am.

Pure Pop tries to get as many titles as possible, but we cannot guarantee any title will be here until it arrives.  Check out twitter, #RSDDrop2021PurePop for an ongoing list of items received as we price them. Have any more questions? Give us a call at 802-658-2652.

Jarv Is-CIMS Handpicked Featured New Release

“Beyond the Pale” out now on cd/vinyl/transparent orange vinyl

After a legendary career as the enigmatic frontman for Pulp, and a successful run of solo albums and collaborations, Jarvis Cocker debuts his first new full length album since 2009 with musical project JARV IS…

________________________________________________________

“… Cocker is actually on prime, Pulp-level form on Beyond the Pale. Anyone pining for the arch twig-insect dandy of old, preening over driving beats and gyrating to wayward early electronics, will find much to love on this album.”

Arca-CIMS Handpicked Featured New Release

“KiCk i” is out now on vinyl

Arca is one of the world’s most transformative musical talents. Since breaking through with her 2012 EPs Stretch 1 and Stretch 2, she’s created an unprecedented body of work drawing from club music, experimental noise, and the ballad tradition of her native Venezuela, while reaching beyond music to encompass performance, visual art, and technology. As a collaborator with Björk, Kanye West, and FKA twigs, she’s stretched contemporary music’s sonic boundaries and helped set the sound of her era. As a Latinx nonbinary trans woman, she’s redefined the role of the diva for a new generation. Her latest work is KiCk i, the first in a series of upcoming works, each with its own sonic theme. For the first installment, KiCk i, Arca pursues pleasure, dignity, and dance floor liberation by refracting club music, reggaetón, and pop through her radical vision.

—————————————————————————————————-

“In Arca’s world, playfulness has long intertwined with terror, rigidity with fluidity, human existence with cyborg life, abrasiveness with gentleness. These contrasts have defined Alejandra Ghersi’s earliest co-productions for Kanye West and FKA twigs”,… read full review by Max Freedman on pastemagazine.com

Yaeji-CIMS Handpicked Featured New Release

New Release by Yaeji, part House, part Pop, part HipHop producer.

purchase yellow vinyl edition, here

‘What We Drew’ is titled intentionally; the project is as much indebted to her own singular creative vision as it is to her network of close-knit collaborators and friends, a team she’s described as a “family business.” She’s inspired by both Korean indie rock and electronica that she listened to as a teenager in Seoul as well as late ’90s and early 2000s hip hop and R&B and in her first full-length release. While entirely self-produced, she’s careful to classify it as a mixtape, which belies the way that these songs came together: “Each track is almost like a snippet of my life, a look into my diary or something, where it’s reflective of how I was specifically feeling during that time.”

“Yaeji’s first full-length mixtape is a subtle, more insular turn for the producer. It plays like a self-issued challenge to strip away the fluorescence, to find what’s underneath pop catharsis.” Read full review by Stacey Anderson on Pitchfork
