Craft Recordings RSD 2022

We covered Record Store Day 2021 from a lot of different angles last year; more than any other Hi-Fi publication with coverage in 5 cities and multiple podcasts that you can find here. We plan on doing that again for Record Store Day 2022 because it was fun and almost all of us found some great titles from our lists.

The snow is still falling in parts of the country, pitchers and catchers might report in a few weeks, and we’re starting to see some titles pop up from smaller indie labels and distributors.

With the most exciting time of the year for record collectors right around the corner, Craft Recordings have announced their releases for this year’s edition of Record Store Day, happening at independent record stores all over the globe on Saturday, April 23rd.
