New Release Day :: Go Buy Vinyl

A handful of the strongest records of 2011 were all released simultaneously this morning, including Neon Indian's staggering synth opus Era Extraña, St. Vincent's dark masterpiece Strange Mercy, and Girls' highly touted and ambitious Father, Son, Holy Ghost. Along with that holy Trinity, we've got promising new LPs by The Drums, Blitzen Trapper, Mates of State, Holiday Shores, Wild Flag, and an EP by Toro Y Moi. If you collect vinyl, please head out to and support your local record shop today (our favorite DC stores: Crooked Beat, Red Onion Records, and Som Records). If you aren't in the vinyl game, digital retailers like iTunes and Amazon have you covered, the latter of which has Strange Mercy for only $3.99.

After the jump, watch the two best music videos of the year courtesy of the wildly creative minds of Neon Indian and St. Vincent.

Neon Indian - "Polish Girl" (from Era Extraña)
St. Vincent - "Cruel" (from Strange Mercy)

Girls - "Alex" (from Father, Son, Holy Ghost)

Era Extraña - Neon Indian
