Record Store Day 2018 at Northside!

Whoa! It’s that time again. Saturday April 21. We have a massive day planned. Bands, DJs, exclusive releases, 45s galore, a ‘FUNK CAVE’*, hobbyists on the cut, giveaways and prizes! 10am-7pm. Even the RSD Tour Bus will be arriving and departing at Northside throughout the day. Live performances from The Bamboos, Jaala, Remi, Plutonic Lab and Natalie Slade, Cool Out Sun + DJs in TWO ROOMS all day long. Your favourite community radio jocks from PBS and RRR will be joined by some of our favourite customers, label owners and the Northside Records soundsystem – dropping knowledge and keeping the vibes rolling until dark.

It’s been our policy in recent years that RSD performers should have a record to present for Record Store Day – and let’s just say this year is an exceptional year! You may want to get out of bed early if you want a piece of Record Store Day history. Every band has a brand new 45 or LP released on the day. Some of these upcoming RSD releases have been previewed on critically acclaimed and internationally renowned community radio shows such as GET DOWN, MYSTIC BREW, THE BREAKDOWN and the THE BLEND. Catch those shows again this week for more tasters.

Full details of Saturday’s action will be available soon. * THE FUNK CAVE: Once again we are able to occupy 238 Gertrude for the day.  We’ll have crates of all-sorts + electronica grab-bags, pop-up DJs, refreshments, lounges, coloured lights and room to dance. If you subscribe to our newsletter you’ll get the scoop at 11am on Thursday. If you don’t subscribe, you should – or watch this space for updates.

And, if that’s not enough – we have a superfine release that comes out on Northside Records’ label, this Friday, April 20. The Seven Ups  return with their third album ‘Commandments’, and they just keep getting better. Rather than describe the music, below is the album artwork that looks a lot like the album sounds! Sadly they can’t be with us on Record Store Day, but we’ll have the record for sale – and more exciting news about their official launch coming soon. Don’t forget – it’s Record Store Day everyday at Northside.

INSTORE ANNOUNCEMENT

SATURDAY 7 TH OCTOBER

Northside will welcome

SAATSUMA

To celebrate the release of Overflow on vinyl, SAATSUMA have just announced a live in-store full-band performance at local wax institution Northside Records in Fitzroy on October 7th at 3pm. For this performance SAATSUMA will bring together the five-piece live band for the special performance.

Captivating Melbourne two-piece SAATSUMA share debut album, Overflow, which sees the duo emerge with a cultivated sound well beyond their years. Written and produced by Memphis LK and Cesar Rodrigues, Overflow is a continuity of a motif that runs throughout their body of work. Memphis LK says the album “continues the recurring theme of water, following on from our debut singles Storm and Floating. Water has always been present… it’s an element I am constantly drawn back to… Our connection to and interaction with the natural environment. The fragility and fluctuation of relationships.” It’s a nine track float on an imaginary SAATSUMA stream; from the comedown of ‘Feel It All’; drifting to a rejection of ignorance, ‘Isolate’; floating towards a notion of wanting what you can’t have, ‘Stay’ and the pull of the moon, ‘Crescent’.

Overflow 12” Vinyl LP is available for purchase at Northside Records, as well as available to stream/buy at saatsuma.com.
