Things are improving but in this continued “unprecedented global situation”, where production and shipping is still in a state of struggle, the focus of these two Drops dates is on bringing revenue to the stores-- as well as to the artists, labels, distribution and every other business behind the scenes making record stores work, in a fiscally and socially responsible way. The spread of titles over two dates in two months allows some flexibility for the struggling vinyl pressing plants and distribution companies as well as provide stores time to prepare budgets and place the orders that safely get music into the hands of customers on a larger than normal release day.”

Honestly, I liked having it split up a bit last year and I know I spent more money that way, which is really good for record stores too.

So what’s coming out? Well, there’s some great things coming and as it gets closer, I’ll go into detail about some of these titles. Until then, here’s a quick overview of some cool things coming for both days.
