Record Store DaySince 2007, Record Store Day has been an annual celebration of independent music retailers that brings together fans, artists, and over 700 independent record stores in the US along with hundreds more across the world. Numerous limited edition recordings of covers, b-sides, demos, and other rarities are released especially for this event (often on vinyl LP or 7″), backed up by scores of unique happenings from PAs to exclusive gigs open only to RSD customers. Indie Disco’s participation to RSD 2011 comes in the shape of Undercover, a compilation featuring 50 covers by bands such as Editors, Muse, Franz Ferdinand, White Lies, The Killers, She Wants Revenge, and Nine Inch Nails. Enjoy.
