Modest Mouse, Wilco Prep Singles for Vinyl Saturday

Modest Mouse

There's a lot of buzz lately about how vinyl is "back" from the dead. Of course, the funny thing is that vinyl never really went away, it's just getting a hell of a lot more popular these days (thanks in no small part to excellent ideas like Record Store Day, we like to think), not to mention getting produced in much better quality (180 gram like whoa!). Hey, speaking of the intersection between vinyl and Record Store Day, we'd be remiss not to mention their latest stratagem: Vinyl Saturday, coming right up on June 20. It's the same basic idea: bands issuing rare or unreleased tracks on limited-edition vinyl to encourage you to step away from the big-boxes and hit up your local mom-and-pop record store.
