Over the weekend Thrill Jockey announced that the label's contribution to this year's National Record Store Day (April 18) is a deluxe, handmade compilation LP titled Records Toreism. The LP is limited to 900 copies and features a drawing by Posttypography on one side. The flipside features a photo silk-screen by Crosshair. Both images portray record stores of the future, one shows the fruitful vision of what happens if you support these long-standing community institutions. The other portrays what will happen if you don't.
