There have been a lot of announcements building up in     anticipation of Record Store Day 2012 (set your calendars for     April 21 this year) but the largest one of them all dropped     today in the form of the official list of every Record Store     Day release. And it is extensive.    
     Luckily, the      RSD     website has a pretty handy drop-down menu that makes the     viewing process a whole lot easier, but there are a bunch of     bands either dropping full-length albums, vinyl re-issues,     collaborations, live albums, unreleased tracks, and an entire     spectrum of collectible artwork and album covers to mark the     occasion.

Some of the big names on the list are the Arcade Fire with a     “Sprawl II” remix, Animal Collective’s ambitious audio project      Transverse Temporal Gyrus, the      Flaming     Lips’ collaborations albumThe Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends with Bon Iver, Ke$ha     and Neon Indian (to name a few), and Phish, Lou Reed, and Paul     Simon album re-releases.    
     Recent      Billboard     cover stars fun. are going to be celebrating RSD by     releasing a 3-song acoustic 10″ record that includes their huge     track “We Are Young” (featuring Janelle Monae) and performing     an in-store show at Newbury Comics in Boston ahead of their     sold out show at the House of Blues that night.
