What One-Off Australian Releases Are Available This Record Store Day?

2019 Record Store Day takes place nationally 13 April.

Fast approaching for another year, Record Store Day (13 April) has plenty of great, local releases that celebrate Australian music from The Amity Affliction, Midnight Oil to Courtney Barnett and everything in-between.

Embracing the culture of independent music stores worldwide, the Australian releases for Record Store Day are packed with all sorts of amazing titles from an eclectic range of genres.

But remember the golden rule for Record Store Day: not all releases are available in all stores, not even the stores know what they're getting. That means it's luck of the draw and first in best dressed, so get up early and prepare for some good old fashioned crate-digging.

The team of RSD ambassadors for this year include singer Kate Ceberano, Hoodoo Gurus legend Dave Faulkner, ARIA's Hall Of Famer Russell Morris, and surf-rock duo Hockey Dad.

Here is a list of some of the announced Australian releases:

Bob Evans 'Suburban Songbook' yellow LP

Released as a Record Store Day exclusive on limited edition yellow vinyl, Jebediah's frontman will have his ARIA Award-winning solo album 'Suburban Songbook' on wax for the very first time.

Broderick Smith 'Suitcase' LP

Originally released in 1992, the first re-release pressing of the 12'' vinyl will follow the iconic singer and bluesman release of his autobiography from 2018.

'Everybody Here Hates You' is the newest track from Courtney. Exclusively released for RSD, the vinyl will also feature her 2018 tune 'Small Talk' as the B-Side. The artwork is hand illustrated by Courtney.

Hard Ons 'Harder & Harder' 7"

'Harder & Harder' is the first single from the legendary Australian band the Hard-Ons forthcoming album to be released later this year, and the first recording since the early 2000s with Keish back on vocals.
