Domino Records entices with Smugglers Way flexi disc zine featuring Dirty Projectors, John Maus, Real Estate, and more

The all-mighty Record Store Day rears its triumphant head again April 21 and things just got a little sweeter with news that Domino Records USA will publish its first Flexi Disc Zine in honor of Record Store Day, which will feature a) unreleased songs from five super-duper Domino artists; b) literary treats; and c) an ultra-snazzy cover from Black Dice’s Bjorn Copeland.

Entitled Smugglers Way, the flexi disc zine will include five unreleased songs from Domino artists Dirty Projectors, John Maus, Cass McCombs, Real Estate, and Villagers. Packaged lovingly along with all that good music will be 24 pages of artsy treats from both Domino and Ribbon artists. Artists contributing both long and short written pieces include Alex Bleeker (Real Estate), Ade Blackburn (Clinic), Tom Fleming (Wild Beasts), and Laura Marling. New illustrations will be provided by folks like Andrea Estella (Twin Sister), Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Connor O’Brien (Villagers), and Jon Hopkins. Jana Hunter will contribute new photography and Owen Pallett (Final Fantasy) will throw in an original arranged score. And the whole thing comes wrapped in Bjorn Copeland’s sweaty arms! Look for it on April 21, and listen to the Real Estate contribution below.

Smugglers Way tracklist (all on individual flexi discs):

Dirty Projectors - “You Against The World”
John Maus - “No Title (Molly)”
Cass McCombs - “Teachers”
Real Estate - “In My Car”
Villagers - “Shards”
