Music lovers and vinyl junkies will flock to record stores across the world on April 21. That's the date for this year's Record Store Day, an annual celebration of independent music shops.
As part of the annual event, many artists will issue limited-run releases available only in indie record shops. This year's list features offerings from The Cure, Pink Floyd, Wilco, Courtney Barnett and many more.
