the nylon guide to record store day 2014

for the love of vinyl!

If you're anything like us, you're obsessed with music--especially music on vinyl. That's why Record Store Day (going down tomorrow, April 19) is one of our favorite days ever (besides, you know, National Cheeseburger Day, Day, National Sibling Day, and National Hot Chocolate Day).

Plus, all of our favorite artists are dropping exclusive must-have releases. We're talking a 12-inch vinyl release from David Lynch, a 12-inch picture disc from Sky Ferreira, and a custom-shaped broken record from Paramore--just check out the gallery to see which RSD 2014 releases we're freaking out over.

The best part? There are tons of bands who are celebrating the epic holiday IRL in your city at tons of record shops (You can check out the entire list on the holiday's official website here!).
