Thanksgiving weekend not only brings bounties of food and family bickering, but also exclusive and rare music releases, courtesy Record Store Day's "Back to Black Friday." The organizers behind the limited vinyl event, who earlier this year held a successful April Record Store Day, present their third annual post-Turkey Day installment on November 23.

Among the goodies featured at this year's outing are Skrillex's three EPs, the new Tomahawk 7-inch single, a split 7-inch from Boris and Asobi Seksu, a 20th anniversary edition of Nirvana's Incesticide compilation, and a split 7-inch pairing versions of "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen and Shakespeare-musical muse, Jeff Buckley, respectively. Listeners looking for dustier material can dig up a 10-inch by the Beach Boys that joins their newest single, "Isn't It Time," with their first, "Surfin' Safari," or perhaps pick up a 12-inch that captures early and alternate versions of tracks from the 45-year-old The Velvet Underground & Nico.
