Fleet Foxes sponsor LP release events in indie record stores

MP3: Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues

Normally I think that listening parties and other such events are a waste of time in the 2010s. Who is really drawn in to a store to listen to an album that leaked weeks ago? However, Fleet Foxes and Sub Pop found a way to spice it up: they’re offering white vinyl pressings (only 200 made) for giveaway at participating record stores. This is one of the rare times I wish I didn’t work at an independent record store — now I’m ineligible for the contest! But hey, I know it’ll go to a good home. There are also screen prints and the sold out Record Store Day 12″ single from Fleet Foxes. So hit up one of these stores on May 3rd!

For a full list of participating record stores, head to subpop.com and yes, CD Central in Lexington is participating.
