The original Jurassic Park soundtrack is getting a limited edition vinyl pressing. If it doesn't include the clip, "it's a Unix system, I know this!" it's a no purchase for me.

The numbers are in for Record Store Day:
Billboard reports that over 369,000 LPs were sold the week ending April 20, with Record Store Day on the 19th. That's a record high since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991, topping last year's RSD-week sales of 244,000 and the previous record, a pre-Christmas 295,000 during a week in December 2013.

Ironically enough, the top-selling vinyl release of the week was Childish Gambino's "Because the Internet." Hopefully it came with a download code.

Per Billboard's data, it was also a great week for indie stores: mom-and-pop retailers moved 19.4 percent of physical albums sold during RSD week, another "likely" SoundScan-era record.

Bruce Springsteen has posted some info about his Record Store Day release.
American Beauty is a collection of songs I cut at home. Upon revisiting them for High Hopes I recognized their potential and Ron Aniello and I worked on them until we’d turned them into the music before you. In the song “American Beauty,” I get to sing in a part of my range I don’t often visit and that along with its ‘guitar wall of sound’ gives it a little ‘exile on E Street’ power. “Mary Mary” is a lovely mystery, a small piece of heartbreak poetry that sneaks up on you with its slippery grove, punctuated string section and spectral lyrics. It came closest to making the High Hopes cut. “Hurry Up Sundown” is a...

There’s so much music out there; there’s so much stuff that sounds like Haim or CHVRCHES or Vampire Weekend that I’m full. The thing I’m hungry for is not that. I turn on the rock station in L.A. and it sounds like Disney commercial music. And I’m confused by that. The dude from Foster the People was literally a jingle writer. No disrespect, but for me to make that stuff was kind of out of the question.

An Aphex Twin album from 1994, titled Caustic Window, that never saw official release cropped up on Discogs recently, with a seller asking for more than $13,000 for their test press. After negotiations between Rephlex Records and the seller, it appears that a complicated deal to distribute 500 downloads via Kickstarter for about $16 has been established, with the physical copy being sold on eBay after the completion of the campaign. The last album of entirely new music from Aphex Twin was released in 2001.
