Exclusive Record Store Day releases from Telekinesis, The Love Language & Let's Wrestle, and an autographed Superchunk picture disc!

Merge will join in the celebration of Record Store Day on Saturday, April 17, with the release of three exclusive 7-inches from Telekinesis, Superchunk, and a split 7-inch from The Love Language & Let's Wrestle.

Superchunk - "Misfits and Mistakes" b/w "Misfits and Mistakes" (Meatwad Version)
Originally released in 2007 in extremely limited quantity, "Misfits and Mistakes" is the first and only picture disc we have ever produced. Recorded for Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, "Misfits and Mistakes" is performed by Superchunk and covered on side B by Meatwad himself!  Each 7-inch picture disc arrives in stores autographed by all four members of Superchunk and is available at a special price exclusively for Record Store Day!

Telekinesis - "Dirty Thing" b/w "Non-Toxic" & "The Drawback"
This is the first new music from Telekinesis since their 2009 Merge debut, Telekinesis!, which was described by NPR Monitor Mix's Carrie Brownstein as "perfectly crafted and utterly gleeful." These three tracks will be available on 7-inch vinyl only!

Let's Wrestle / The Love Language - "I'm So Lazy" b/w "Brittany's Back (demo version)"
With this split 7-inch created exclusively for Record Store Day, we introduce two exciting new Merge bands: Let's Wrestle and The Love Language! Featuring brand new songs from both bands, these tracks will be available on 7-inch vinyl only!

Record Store Day is a yearly celebration in which independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.
