A Word About RSD Merch

So, we adore our customers and want to give y’all a heads up: the Record Store Day people have told us that they drastically underestimated the demand for this year’s RSD exclusives.  We’re already finding out that some things we ordered 15+ copies of, we were only allotted TWO copies out of what was available.  Some announced releases aren’t even coming out, some are UK-only, some bigger-market stores likely get better allotments… It’s been frustrating and in the words of one of our distributors, “a hot mess.”

Anyway, we got what we could, which is a nice chunk of stuff.  Doors open at 10am on Saturday so be there early or you will definitely be left out.  Our BFFs at Radio-Active Records are getting a ton of exclusives as well so we implore you to cross county lines and hit them up too!

On the up side, we ARE one of the 10 stores in North America chosen to carry the uber-exclusive new Surfer Blood/Holiday Shores split 7″, limited to 250 copies worldwide! The A side features Marnie Stern and the B side sees Holiday Shores covering Arthur Russell!

Sweat is currently the ONLY place in South Florida …

IronForge x Surfer Blood POSTER

By now you’ve all heard about the fact that we’ve got West Palm Beach’s SURFER BLOOD at Fridays at The Vagabond tomorrow, that they’ve been featured in the New York Times, by Rolling Stone, a recent lead story for the Broward New Times, and that scrooge-y old Pitchfork made their single “Swim” number 37 on their list of the top tracks of the year.

What you haven’t heard, is that Sweat and The Vagabond have teamed up with IronForge Press to make a sick silk-screened limited edition poster for the show!
