RSD 2016 - Our Top Picks

Our Top Picks from Record Store Day 2016.

RSD 2016

This Saturday the 16th of April sees the 2016 Record Store Day hit record shops around the country. 

Always a great day for record collectors and music fans we thought we would take a look at some of our top picks from this years releases.

Though the day will always have its critics around unnecessary releases trying to cash in and, sometimes, unreasonably high prices there is still usually one or two things to peak the interest.

I wasn't blown away by this years list but there are one or two things that I wouldn't mind.

It's also worth mentioning that Record Store Days around the world also throw up some good releases with The 4 Skins 'One Law For Them' being released in Germany so you might want to do your homework further afield too.

Anyway, here's some of our top picks but remember to check out the full list if you get a chance.
