flaming lips, cassette store day, the terror

International Cassette Store Day takes place on September 7, and organizers have announced many of the limited-edition releases planned for the anachronistic holiday. Despite its ultra-nostalgic intentions, the upcoming event is actually promising a fairly fresh lineup of exclusives. Among the highlights: 2013 SPIN Essentials the Flaming Lips’ The Terror and Deerhunter’s Monomania, Justin Vernon-led Volcano Choir‘s impending Repave, Los Campesinos!’s recent A Good Night for a Fistfight live album, Guided by Voices’ English Little LeagueHaim‘s 2012 Forever EP, Fucked Up’s Hidden World from 2006, and Animal Collective’s 2004 landmark LP, Sung Tongs

Find the full list of confirmed releases below, and head over to the International Cassette Store Day website to find participating retailers. Stores in London, Brooklyn, Tokyo, and Fullerton, California, will host exclusive events in coordination with the “first” annual Cassette Store Day, planning live musical performances, DJ sets, and more.
