- Apr 21, 2014

The Record Store Day rush is over, but the RSD echo is in full swing. Most of the more tantalizing 2014 exclusives and special releases flew off the shelves after the doors opened at your local brick-and-mortar record shop, but now it's the web's turn. Record Store Day songs have been dripping online through various channels. We're collecting them here to stream.

Have a listen below to new songs from the likes of Jack White, the Pixies, Chad VanGaalen, The Julie Ruin and more. And check back throughout the day. We'll continue to update as the songs leak through. (Hit us on Twitter or on Facebook if you have a tip.)

Pixies, "Women of War"

Pixies - Women of War (hidden RSD 7")

Jack White, "Lazaretto" (World's Fastest Record)

Ever since he started Nashville's Third Man Records, Jack White has treated Record Store Day like a parlour game. Here he is, at it again.
