In-stores have always been a great promotional tool for an artist to promote a new album. San Francisco duo Girls are taking the in-store to a whole new level this Friday. The band will be live webcasting their concert from Grimey’s in Nashville for what is being called the first ever nationwide in-store performance. The show begins at 6:00 PM EST and will be livecast on any of your favourite record store’s website, blog or Facebook page. On top of that, Girls will create a limited edition vinyl release exclusive to stores participating in this live streaming event, to be made available later this year. (Via Matador)
The other day we brought attention to a cryptic message on the Big Pink’s website. Now we have some news. The UK dream rock band will release a new album in January called Futureless, which has ten tracks. One of those tracks is new single “Stay Gold,” which they’ve released the video for.
