The aftermath of Record Store Day left Terry overwhelmed in the best possible way. This episode explores the variety of music that came his way over roughly a four-to-six week period. As the title of the episode would suggest, XTC does play a small part. However, that Skylarking reissue is discussed as well as compliations from Numero Group, Rough Guide & Light In The Attic. Then there are the recent releases and reissues from Courtney Barnett, Flaming Lips, The Both, Tori Amos, Liam Finn, Wye Oak, R.E.M. and The Zombies. In short, if there isn't any music for you then Terry would suggest seeking some out at your "local" record store. If you don't know of one then recordstoreday.com might be able to help. Please support your local, independently minded record stores.

Episode 4 will celebrates the 20th anniversary of the release of Guided by Voices' classic Bee Thousand. And given their two 2014 releases, they too get a brief mention in this episode of the podcast. A lot of music to talk about but not in a lot of time so don't be surprise if some of this resurfaces in upcoming episodes.
