Record Store Day is back! The annual celebration of vinyl and independent record stores is back to its roots with an April date and we couldn't be happier. Once again, we'll have hundreds of limited edition releases available on a first-come first served basis. We'll be open at 10am and let four shoppers in at a time to make their selections (so get here early). We hope to see you here in Downtown New London on Saturday, April 23 for Telegraph's Record Store Day 2022! Sadly, we won't be hosting live music as we have in the past but we promise we'll get back to it down the line.

(Indie/Synth/Pop/Rock/Alternative) Jimkata bring their brand of anthemic, synth-washed, electro-rock from Los Angelas with special guests indie alt-rock act Eat Fire Spring! Four years after going on hiatus, Jimkata is back with a renewed sense of purpose and an extraordinary new album. Recorded in Syracuse with producer Jason Randall, Bonfires finds the trio digging deep and stretching their boundaries with bold, intoxicating arrangements fueled by swirling synthesizers and anthemic hooks. The songs here are at once modern and classic, blurring the lines between the organic and the electronic as they reckon with doubt, struggle, and perseverance in a search for truth and meaning. Like much of Jimkata’s catalog, Bonfires delivers transcendence in tight, dancefloor-ready packages, but there’s a sense of freedom at play that pushes the trio’s performances to new emotional heights, a kind of liberation that can only come from learning to let go of expectation and embrace the moment. “I think the time away brought us all more maturity, more patience, an ability to see the bigger picture,” says singer/guitarist Evan Friedell. “We all gained a lot of perspective on life and the value of being in a band together.” Indeed, the heart and soul of Jimkata has always been the enduring bonds between Friedell and his longtime bandmates, guitarist/keyboardist Aaron Gorsch and drummer Packy Lunn. Pals since middle school, the three launched Jimkata in 2005 while attending Ithaca College, where they quickly found an audience for their relentlessly feel-good performances, which grew from local house parties to club, theater, and festival dates on the strength of a series of critically acclaimed albums. Popdose hailed the band’s “bubbly sweetness,” while American Songwriter praised their “organic chemistry,” and Relix raved that the trio’s sound “proves that rock-based music still has a place in the world of four-on-the-floor beats.”
