Lodge Artists Debut Limited Edition Vinyl for Record Store Day!!

Today is officially Record Store Day and we are psyched!! Over the past several months, The Lodge has been gearing up for April 19, working with artists Garbage, Sky Ferreira, and Hamilton Leithauser in pursuit of releasing the most amazing limited edition vinyl exclusively for Record Store Day 2014.

Conceived in 2007 by a group of record storeowners and staff, they wanted to spread the word about their indie shops and vibey culture. Now every third Saturday in April, local record stores all over the world participate in special events that celebrate local and independent record stores!

Everyone can agree, the most exciting part of Record Store Day is the limited edition titles which are released exclusively to RSD participating indie stores around the world. Some vinyls are released region specific and some super limited edition.  Garbage will be releasing an ‘RSD First’ 10” vinyl debut of tracks “Girls Talk Shit” (featuring Brody Dalle) and “Time Will Tell.” Hamilton Leithauser, of The Walkmen, will also be releasing new music, an ‘RSD Exclusive’ 7” vinyl of his hit single “Alexandra.” Sky Ferreira will be immortalized on 12” as she re-releases a picture disc of her debut album Night Time My Time.

Christina Perri’s `Head or Heart’ Debuts at #2 on iTunes!

Singer/songwriter, Christina Perri’s sophomore album, Head or Heart, is already a smash on iTunes! Released on Atlantic Records, Head or Heart was expertly made by a team of well seasoned producers: Martin Johnson (Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo), Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, One Direction)John Hill (P!NK, Sanitgold), and Butch Walker (Panic at the Disco, Fall Out Boy). The final touches for mastering were done by Emily Lazar, Chief Mastering Engineer at The Lodge in NYC (assisted by Rich Morales).

After 18 months of recording in a small town in the UK, Perri released her second album, Head or Heart, to rave reviews. The album’s debut single, “Human,” written by Perri and Johnson, rose to #14 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart, and has become a favorite on the iTunes Top 20 list. The song is so popular that several artists began remixing the pop-power ballad, including a mind-blowing remix by Passion Pit, (also mastered by Lazar at The Lodge). Check out the beautifully robotic music video for “Human” directed by Elliott Sellers, below.

 “Burning Gold”, the instantly memorable second single, has been described by Perri as        representative of her emotional struggle regarding her decision to move from Philadelphia to Los Angeles to further her music career. The track “I Don’t Wanna Break” was featured in a recent episode of HBO’s hit comedy-drama series and was showcased on their second soundtrack, “Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do…” which was also released via Atlantic Records

Perri collaborated with her close friend Ed Sheeran on the amazingly playful duet, “Be My Forever.” In a recent interview, Perri admits she had never intended to use this track for herself because it sounded too “happy,” however, she fell in love with the lyrics and knew immediately that the male portion had to be sung by Ed Sheeran. Be sure to check this one out - this gem is an absolutely infectious pop track that is sure to please!
A majority of the album was mixed by mix engineer, Manny Marroquin (Kanye WestJohn LegandAlicia Keys) while Michael Brauer (John Mayer, Coldplay) also contributed two mixes. 
To celebrate the release of “Head or Heart” Perri will be kicking-off her highly anticipated North American, Head or Heart Tour!  The tour begins Friday, April 4th in Denver, Colorado. Be sure to check out her upcoming live TV performances as Perri will be visiting ABC’s The View on April 16th and CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman on April 21st
